The second most populous nation in the world, India is ranked fifth in a worldwide listing of countries producing paper products. With a population of 1.25 billion, one would expect India to have significant capacity in Tissue and Towel production. In actuality, India has a very modest T&T capacity base. India produces about 15.5 million metric tons of paper annually but only once percent, 141 thousand tons, are T&T products placing India in 40th in a worldwide T&T ranking.
