RISI Expands Asian Packaging and Fine Paper Coverage

Asian price coverage improved to deliver a comprehensive view of market

Boston, MA, October 18, 2017, (Press Release) – RISI, the leading price assessments and information provider for the global forest products industry, is improving its coverage of Asian Packaging and Fine Paper markets by better aligning its China assessment with its forecast series, as well as expanding coverage of Southeast Asian prices. The changes offer clients a more seamless way to consume price assessments and forecasts while delivering a more comprehensive view of the market.

Starting January 2018, RISI will increase the frequency of Southeast Asia price assessments for grayback and whiteback coated duplex board, and uncoated and coated woodfree paper to monthly in its weekly newsletter PPI Asia. It will also add a new assessment series for East China kraftliner, reflecting material imported from the US, Europe, Russia and Australia.

At the same time, the Asian Pulp & Paper Monitor (APPM) which provides a two forecast of the market will report East China price forecasts in place of Hong Kong forecasts. The switch will provide a better representation of current market trends while delivering the current price assessments published in PPI Asia. APPM will also include coverage of Southeast Asia grades matching the PPI Asia assessments.
