A thorough analysis and 10-year forecast of global cut-size markets
Cut size papers are one of the few products within the graphic paper industry that are still growing on a global basis. Although demand is trending down in developed countries, we are still seeing strong growth in many developing regions of the world. A key element of the forecast is when some of these developing countries will see a peak in demand and revert to a stagnant or declining market as North America and Western Europe did in 2007-2008.
Understand the current state of the global market: New low cost capacity is still being built in Asia and Eastern Europe, with the potential for further expansion in other regions. North American and West European producers have been shutting mills and are generally unable to find enough export growth to offset declining domestic demand.
Global trade and widely fluctuating currencies have come to the forefront of this market. This has spurred protectionist measures in the United States with tariffs affecting 820,000 tonnes of imports. These duties promise to cause major restructuring of the supply chain from at least 2015 to 2020. Despite the woes of the market, average profitability for cut size production has exceeded most other graphic paper products, but the prospects vary widely by region and have been on a downward trend in recent years.
The Global Outlook for Cut Size Uncoated Freesheet Paper Markets analyzes the market for imaging, multipurpose, and other cut size business papers on a global scale to see how demand will develop and how the distribution chain will evolve over the next 10 years.
The study provides a global supplier analysis with coverage by paper machine -- with production, capacity, and trade trends for the next 10 years. It also includes competitive production costs data, with delivery costs to key consuming markets. It identifies the global cost competitiveness of cut size production. With forecast price projections, the study provides the intelligence you need to inform your decision-making.
