Of the total installed capacity, 43 per cent is dependent on forest based raw materials, 28 per cent on agro based raw materials and the remaining 29 per cent on other materials, including secondary fibre. Sustained availability of fibre resources is the major long-term concern for the growth of the paper industry. There is very good scope in this sector for new entrepreneurs.
