Competition

MeadWestvaco operates in a very challenging global marketplace and competes with many large, well-established and highly competitive manufacturers and service providers. In addition, our business is affected by a range of macroeconomic conditions, including industry capacity changes, a trend in the packaging, paperboard and forest products industry toward consolidation, global competition, economic conditions in the U.S. and abroad, and currency exchange rates.

We compete principally through quality, price, value-added products and services such as packaging solutions, customer service, innovation, technology, and product design. Our proprietary trademarks and patents, in the aggregate, are also important to our competitive position in certain markets.

The Packaging Resources segment competes globally with manufacturers of value-added CNK and bleached paperboard for packaging and graphic applications, as well as specialty paperboards. The Consumer Solutions segment competes globally with numerous packaging service providers in the package design, development, and manufacturing arenas, as well as the manufacture of dispensing and spraying systems. The Consumer & Office Products segment competes with national and regional converters, as well as foreign producers, especially from Asia. The Specialty Chemicals segment competes on a worldwide basis with producers of activated carbons, refined tall oil products, lignin-based chemicals and specialty resins.
