The U.S. papermaking industry is on the upswing.
In its annual survey of production, the Paper and Manufacturing Industry Association (PMIA) said that in 2014, the number of Americans making their own paper products surpassed 2 million, up from 1.7 million in 2013.
The number of American papermakers rose from 1,931,821 in 2012 to 2,929,811 in 2014.
This marks the fastest growth rate in the history of the industry.
The growth is driven by both new products and the number that are manufactured abroad.
This is not to say that the U. S. is a nation of papermakers, however.
The PMIA said that the number dropped from 1 million in 2014 to 1.2 million in 2015.
A decline in imports and an increase in the number produced by American firms also played a role in the uptick.
In 2014, about 70 percent of all paper products came from abroad, according to the PMIA.
This year, that figure has dropped to 60 percent.
The industry is also growing fast in Mexico.
The country, which accounts for 40 percent of the world’s papermaking capacity, has been the main destination for U. States exports since 2013.
In 2018, Mexico’s production of paper products increased from 2.6 million to 4.2 billion.
However, in 2019, it was down to 2.5 billion, according the PMIC.
The paper industry has also seen a big increase in imports, from 2 million in 2017 to 2 million last year.
This was largely due to a surge in demand for recycled paper.
Paper and Paper Mill Association has said that demand for paper is expected to reach 15.5 million metric tons in 2019.
That is the highest level ever recorded.
It’s also a number that will likely continue to rise, as the paper industry continues to invest in making products that last longer.
The government is looking to reduce the number, as well.
In 2019, President Donald Trump pledged to cut the number in half, while Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin has said he wants the industry to grow by a further 10 percent per year.
There’s been much discussion on what these measures should look like, but a big part of it is due to the current administration.
The Trump administration is currently in the midst of renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a trade deal that President Donald Trumps administration has largely abandoned in favor of a more bilateral approach.
The trade agreement was negotiated by President George W. Bush in the 1990s and has been largely blamed for the loss of thousands of manufacturing jobs.
However that hasn’t stopped the industry from expanding.
In fact, the United States has grown its paper and paper mill industries by more than 70 percent over the past 20 years.
In 2015, the U-M paper and plastic industries generated more than $2 billion in revenue, according a report from the American Paper Millers Association.
The companies have also been in the news recently, with the U.-M’s campus being burned down during a riot in May.
The riot, which left two people dead and three others injured, also occurred on campus, where students are still protesting.
According to the report, the university is also being sued for damages by the family of a student who died after being struck by a falling tree.
The student’s family was represented by the University of Michigan’s law firm.
