Butcher’s paper is a particular kind of paper primarily used to wrap meat and fish to protect them from airborne pollutants and taste taint. It often consists of bleached and unbleached materials and is used in various industries.

Butcher’s paper usage has increased over the years due to the growing requirement to prevent the leakage of juicy food products. The trend is projected to continue over the assessment period. Because butcher paper doesn’t trap moisture, it is used more frequently while smoking meat.

Similar to this, it is anticipated that over the projection period, the demand for butchers’ paper will be driven by the steadily expanding end-user industries, such as restaurants, cafes, canteens, etc.

Market Dynamic


The growing consumer awareness of the harmful impacts of plastic packaging on the environment is actively driving the need for sustainable and environmentally friendly butcher paper.

Customers who avoid non-sustainable packaging now have a great packaging option in butcher paper. As it is composed of writing, this packaging material is simple to recycle, and brands use it to demonstrate their dedication to environmental sustainability.

The initiatives of many governments to enhance sustainable packaging have also increased. Therefore, butcher’s paper sales are rising due to growing environmental concerns about eco-friendly and sustainable packaging, and this trend is likely to continue during the forecast period.


Butcher’s paper was once solely used to wrap meat and fish goods to protect them from environmental elements. It has FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval because it makes the ideal wrapping and packaging paper for food items.

Customers can transport food items home using butcher’s paper without worrying that the juices will spill out. Additionally, it is applied between products that are thought to be rusting. Due to its affordability and eco-friendliness, butcher’s paper has recently gained popularity in various fields, including education, where it is used for arts and crafts projects like hanging artwork.

Therefore, it is anticipated that the expanding trend of employing butcher paper in non-food industries will present profitable prospects for butcher paper manufacturers over the next ten years.
