TN Paper Council
Tennessee Paper Industry
Paper is an essential part of our everyday lives:
Tennessee’s paper industry contributes significantly to the state and local economies. The value of goods and services produced directly by the paper industry totals $8.5 billion annually, and the industry adds $2.6 billion in value to the raw materials it uses. The paper industry’s total output is estimated to be $14 billion.
In addition to the direct employment of tens of thousands of Tennesseans, the paper industry helps create thousands of additional jobs in industries such as trucking and heavy equipment sales and operation, and for numerous independent contractors.
