The April 2022 edition (Number 201) of Pulp & Paper Edge, IndustryEdge’s monthly analysis of the Australian and New Zealand pulp, paper and paper products industry was published a few days ago.

In this latest edition, market price, volume and value indexes are updated, as are the extensive briefings on fibre resources and specific paper grades. The downloadable market data files – a summary and very detailed trade files are also directly accessible to subscribers.

Up to date analysis of Ovato’s New Zealand printing facility closure, the regional experience with shipping and freight costs and analysis of cartonboard markets in China, the current debate around industry’s role in helping get to net zero before 2050, the latest on printing paper prices and the implications of ‘peak recovery’ for paper and board are all included in this edition.
