The hottest North American paper market triggered

  • Detail

The North American paper market triggered a chain reaction. Pulp prices soared without falling.

the raw material of pulp is trees, and trees are products within resources. With the increasing population, Economics "Through the rapid development of Eastman's materials, people will use more and more paper... Even if paper can be recycled, the growth rate of paper is much faster than the growth of trees. There is no doubt that paper will appreciate year by year in recent years. In addition, recently, the southern United States suffered a serious tornado attack, which caused a shortage of wood supply in North America. Therefore, North American pulp trading will have certain price pressure in the future. Although the rush to buy Pulp in Asia, especially in China, is no longer so high, with more and more social demand and the decline of the US dollar, pulp prices will continue to rise

NBSK (northernleachedsoftwoodkraft): at the international pulp week recently held in Vancouver, Canada, the mood of industry insiders was quite optimistic. In addition to seasonal downtime, pulp supply in the North American market is also affected by several other factors. Flooding in the southern United States has once again caused problems such as tight wood supply. Using some pulp grade paper shipments, such as uncoated paper, is one of the negative factors

European NBSK in terms of quality system construction: the needle pulp market is still in a good balance between supply and demand. China's active rush to buy pulp has cooled and is currently using inventory. At present, the downtime and overhaul time have reduced the pulp output, and the increase of paper production capacity in Asia also requires more pulp. It is expected that the total pulp inventory of major pulp producers, major consumers, ports and other major pulp producers is lower than the normal level. Some producers are planning to raise the pulp price in the European market by US $30/ton again in June

European bhkp (hardwood kraft pulp): the broad-leaved pulp market seems to be less popular than the needle pulp market. In April, buyers resisted price hikes, which meant that shipments fell and inventories increased. On the other hand, the use of alternative dissolving slurry makes NBSK's shipment continue to increase. In the first two weeks of May, the US dollar fell by% and raised the euro based pulp quotation. Although the prices of bskp and bhkp do not require strict polymerization conditions, the gap is wider and wider, and the number of conversion from coniferous pulp to broad-leaved pulp has not increased. This price gap should have a significant impact on the supply and demand balance of the two pulps, which now seems not to be the case

China bhkp: the purchase of coniferous pulp to replace the rush buying behavior of dissolution seems to be suspended, which is likely to be temporary. The ultra-high delivery volume in March has reduced the demand for pulp in April. Later this year or in 2012, the state issued a decree requiring the closure of backward non paper production capacity, which will greatly increase the demand for pulp, mainly broad-leaved pulp. China's high demand for pulp has fallen, and the price of dissolved pulp has fallen

at present, the rise of international energy and wood prices has increased the cost of pulping, and the price of pulp in the international market has generally increased. In the face of such a situation, we should actively take countermeasures: vigorously promote the saving of paper, increase the recycling of domestic waste paper, and promote the recycling of resources; Continue to implement the forest paper integration system, and vigorously develop the fast-growing forest paper industry and bamboo pulp paper on the basis of ensuring a clean environment; Try to set up wood pulp futures varieties to cope with the sharp fluctuations in the prices of upstream products
