PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper Tbk is the largest manufacturer of paper pulp, paper and other paper-related products by sales in Indonesia and one of the largest in the world.
It also produces industrial paper products, such as packaging paper and specialty paper. INKP is part of Asia Pulp & Paper, which is controlled by the Sinar Mas group.
The company is the biggest producer of paper pulp, paper, and paper-based products in Indonesia and part of the Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) group
that has the second largest capacity in the world reaching over 19m tonnes per year. INKP accounts for over one-third of APP’s capacity.
INKP’s largest segment is pulp and paper, accounting for 65% of sales, followed by paper packaging, which generates 35% of revenue.
Paper packaging or industrial paper products include linerboards, which are the basic material for making cardboard paper boxes, corrugated mediums (also used in cardboard boxes and packaging), corrugated shipping containers, boxboards and specialty colored paper. Boxboard is the cardboard used in food cartons and shoe boxes.
China is a key player in global paper demand and production. Hence their recent domestic capacity restraint has helped to tighten supply which should support stable or higher prices. Besides recent capacity additions by APP subsidiary PT Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk (TKIM IJ) and Fibria (FIBR3 BZ), the earliest announced capacity expansions by leading global paper players are in 2020.
