International Paper (NYSE:IP) is not only the largest company of its kind anywhere in the world, but it's also growing its business fast. Although it does receive 75% of its revenue from the North American market, it ranks among the top four businesses in its sector in every emerging market it's located in, with big pushes coming in countries such as Brazil. In this video, Motley Fool materials analyst Taylor Muckerman tells us how this company has managed to have such a blockbuster year (up almost 26% year-to-date), while others in the paper business are struggling.
