  • Fluff pulp is a speciality wood pulp, primarily based on longer, coarser fibre softwood species
  • In 2017, fluff pulp production capacity is estimated at around 6.8 million (air dried) tonnes
  • End-uses for fluff pulp centre on the absorbent core for hygiene products, including the large global diaper/nappies, feminine hygiene, and adult incontinence markets, as well as the faster growing nonwovens market
  • These markets for fluff pulp have an estimated demand of around 5.8 million (air dried) tonnes
  • The presence of almost 2.0 million tonnes of “swing” capacity – that is, fluff pulp production capacity that can switch (or swing) to other pulp products, like dissolving pulp or papermaking grades – makes it possible for producers to carefully manage supply and demand.
