Forest Products, Paper & Packaging

Forest products, paper and packaging comprises many subsectors, each with its own challenges. While the developing world presents growth opportunities for all, in more mature markets the outlook is decidedly mixed, varying by product category, geography and underlying economics. Bain works with companies in all sectors to find paths to profitable growth no matter what the obstacles may be.
