Sluggish demand drives down prices for paper
October 10, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
Prices for printing and writing paper continued trending downward in North America due to slower-than-expected demand in the third quarter, according to a report by Fastmarkets. The report found that mills were still operating at low capacity, and the supply chain was holding more-than-desired inventories.
Demand for printing and writing paper demand in the first eight months of 2023 was 26.5 per cent lower than in January-August 2022, according to data from Pulp and Paper Products Council (PPPC).
