North American newsprint demand remained in positive territory overall in October with a gain of 1.7% over October 2011, according to data published today by the Pulp and Paper Products Council.

The gain was supported by demand from non-newspaper end use which was 17.4% higher than in October 2011. However the October increase for the segment was seven percentage points weaker than the year-to-date average. Demand by newspapers was 2.6% lower than a year ago.
