Diapers/nappies are the largest end use market with about 37.3% of the market in 2015, while nonwovens are the fastest growing end use at 5.3% annual growth for 2015-20. Other end uses include feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products. Traditionally priced between papermaking pulp grades and dissolving pulp grades, for the last few years fluff pulp has been higher priced than either. This has led to plant conversions and grade swings from both papermaking and dissolving pulp grades to fluff pulp, with major new volume scheduled for entry into the market within the next twelve months.
