The Covid-19 pandemic swept through Latin America, bringing long-term change to local economies and industries. Consumer graphic paper consumption dropped by 25% in 2020 as schools and offices closed, while packaging demand rose due to increased e-commerce, which has risen by 37% in 2020. As economies try to recover, paper and packaging producers are working to keep their businesses profitable and sustainable, with over $1 billion committed to sustainability-linked bonds and more innovation in eco-friendly packaging solutions than ever.

Join the premier forum to learn more about the Latin American market and find out how the pandemic, key economic drivers, and consumer trends have triggered accelerated changes in the supply and demand of forest products in the region.
