The fourteen largest mills (of a total of 38) account for 55 per cent of the capacity (i.e. 6.2 million tonnes).

The total paper capacity for 2015
was 11.3 million tonnes.
In the “400,000 tonnes plus” category are most of the mills that produce newsprint, writing and printing paper, paper for the production of corrugated board and packaging paper.

Of the “100,000 tonnes and under” category, half the mills are soft paper mills; but the rest also includes mills that produce packaging paper.
