article Australia’s emerging print industry is booming.
The paper industry employs around 15,000 people in the country and employs almost half of Australia’s workforce.
But according to the Paper Industry Association of Australia, the paper sector is also facing pressure from the digital world.
Key points:The industry employs almost 15,100 people and employs around half of the Australian workforceAccording to the Association, the Paper industry is facing pressure to adapt to the digital ageA growing proportion of Australian businesses are being designed to meet the digital demands of their customers, such as the rise of the internet-based e-commerce marketA survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics last year found the paper industry had grown by around 3 per cent in the past 12 months.
The paper industry has seen a big boom in the last decade, with paper production up by more than 40 per cent since 2008.
But there’s a lot more to the story than just the growth.
The biggest factor behind this growth is the growth of the digital economy.
A recent study by the Institute of Public Affairs found that over half of Australian households have internet access.
That’s more than any other country in the world.
The study also found that Australians are using their computers more than ever, but that more than half of Australians still use their mobile phones.
In 2016, the number of Australian users using a mobile phone to access the internet doubled to around 10 per cent.
While this trend is likely to continue, the growing importance of the online environment means that the paper production sector will be a critical part of the industry moving forward.
As more Australians use their smartphones, the need for paper is likely get a boost.
According to Dr David Smith, the chief executive of the paper company Avent, this means a boom in paper production.
“The digital world is changing the way we manufacture our paper, and we’re going to have to adapt,” he said.
“It’s going to be much more of a demand-driven industry in the next 10 to 15 years, so it’s going be very, very exciting to see.”
The Paper Industry Associations survey found that while a growing number of people were using mobile phones to access online media, a significant number of Australians were still using their desktop computers for their work.
It found that the proportion of Australians using a computer to access media was down by about 6 per cent, while the proportion using a desktop was up by 11 per cent and the proportion who used a laptop or tablet increased by 10 per% to about 10 per,000.
What are the issues facing the paper economy?
Dr Smith said that there are a number of key issues facing Australia’s paper industry, including the high cost of paper, the rising cost of production and the need to adapt.
“There’s a huge increase in the cost of the material that we produce.
The cost of a kilogram of paper has gone up by almost 40 per 100 paper kilogrammes.
So, in some cases, it’s a 50 per cent increase in cost,” he explained.”
That means we’ve got to adapt a lot.
We’ve got a lot of people out there that are struggling to make ends meet, so we’ve certainly got to do a lot to help them.”
Dr Smith also said that a large proportion of the businesses in Australia are still using paper products that are made from materials sourced from other countries.
“Some of those are just recycled paper.
Some of those aren’t recycled paper at all,” he noted.”
If we can do a better job of recycling our paper and make sure that we’re sourcing from a better source, I think we can certainly make a lot out of this.”
