Pulp & Paper Edge – January 2021: NOW AVAILABLE
The January 2021 edition (Number 187) of Pulp & Paper Edge, IndustryEdge’s monthly analysis of the Australian and New Zealand pulp, paper and paper products industry was published today.
IndustryEdge advises there is cautious optimism in most sectors of the broad industry, with those involved in specialty and food packaging expecting another solid year of growth and even those in the beleaguered printing paper sector somewhat cheered by the modest price increases recorded in IndustryEdge’s Australasian Paper Price Index.
On the fibre side, some of the optimism comes from rising pulp prices and relatively stable trade in recovered paper, despite the Chinese import bans that commenced on 1st January 2021.
