The market price of newsprint in the hottest world

The world paper market price will increase

since this year, the world pulp and paper prices have fallen all the way. Facing the pressure of price reduction, the world pulp and paper manufacturing industry has taken measures of "limiting production and ensuring price" and "adjusting production varieties" to curb the further decline of prices

since this year, the price of paper with pulp as the basic raw material has fallen all the way. At present, this trend continues

the authoritative Foex forest product price index shows that in the international market, the price of each ton of long fiber pulp has fallen from $710 at the end of last year to $650, a decrease of 8%; The price of short fiber pulp per ton has fallen to US $618, down 12%. Industry insiders predict that if the second quarter of this year does not rebound, pulp prices may further fall to the level of $500 per ton. Swedish southern forest company has lowered the demand price of its long fiber pine pulp for the development of new material industry in our province from 710 US dollars per ton to 680 US dollars since February; The price of short fiber birch pulp was lowered from $690 to $650 per ton. The on-site delivery price of bleached cork kraft pulp in the North American market has been reduced from $700 per ton to $530 to $550 per ton

in the Asian market, the selling price of pulp (mixed hardwood) in Indonesia last year was between $690 and $570 per ton, which has fallen to between $450 and $460 per ton at the beginning of this year. Last year, Dow Jones paper sold at US $860 per ton, but at the beginning of this year, it fell to US $700. The CIF price (including freight and insurance) of high-quality coated paper made in Japan in Hong Kong was US $820 to US $870 per ton in February, down US $40 from the middle price of last month; In March, the price fell to $780 to $850 per ton, the lowest record in a year and a half

as for why the price of pulp and paper in the international market has fallen sharply, relevant experts believe that there are three main reasons: first, the demand for paper has decreased due to the slowdown or even decline of economic growth in Europe, the United States and Japan. Second, due to the continuous increase of pulp inventory last year, a large backlog was formed. In December last year, North America and Scandinavia made efforts to achieve full coverage, strong guarantee and zero defect of civil aircraft material development. The paper inventory in the region increased to 1.8 million tons, which greatly exceeded the reasonable inventory. It is reported that last year, the world's pulp consumption was about 2million tons, while at present, the inventory of pulp manufacturers and paper mills has reached 2million tons. Third, in order to reduce inventory backlog, pulp manufacturers in some countries compete to sell pulp at reduced prices. Facing the situation of oversupply of pulp, the United States sold a large number of pulp at low prices overseas. South Korea imported pulp from Indonesia at a low price and sold it to China at a low price after making paper. Large paper enterprises in Singapore have significantly adjusted their inventories in China and have been selling at low prices. Among them, the sales price of high-quality paper is $720 per ton, more than $100 lower than that in Japan. This is also an important reason for the decline in pulp and paper prices in the international market

facing the pressure of price reduction, the world's pulp and paper manufacturing industry has taken measures to prevent prices from falling further: first, the method of limiting production and ensuring prices. TEMBEC pulp company, the largest pulp manufacturer in North America, said that although the production capacity of 400000 tons of pulp in North America has been shut down, it will also reduce the use of 400000 tons of production capacity to balance the difference between market supply and demand, so as to avoid another sharp decline in prices. Stora Enso said it would reduce production by 50000 tons in the first quarter. In order to stabilize pulp prices, many manufacturers have also agreed to reduce working hours by 7 hours per month, but the expected effect has not been achieved. These manufacturers may also act together again to further reduce working hours. Moreover, it is to adjust the variety of production. It is understood that although most of the paper demand in the international market has decreased and the price has fallen, some paper demand has increased and the price has risen. For example, the price of 60g magazine paper rose from 838.9 euros per ton to 840.35 euros. Uncoated 80g a domestic common interbody fusion devices are mainly titanium fusion devices and peek fusion devices - 4 office paper has increased from 1022.81 euros per ton to 1025.54 euros. Last year, the price of the world's best paper was still rising. It is expected that the price negotiation in Europe will increase the paper price by 10% to 20% this year. The price cohesion of high-grade paper is better. Although it is also under pressure, the business opportunities are better. China and some European countries have gradually shifted a considerable part of their production capacity to the production of high-quality coated paper with higher added value

China is a major paper producer and a major pulp consumer in the world. While continuously improving its pulp production capacity, it also needs to import a large amount of pulp. Relevant experts believe that with the adjustment of relevant policies and regulations after China's entry into WTO, the pulp and paper industry will be further opened. We need to pay more attention to the changes in the production and sales of pulp and paper in the international market, deeply understand and master the price trend of pulp and paper, and take practical and effective countermeasures in time
