Run Scenarios to Model Future Markets

Avoid risk to your competitive position. Model how market changes—like increasing mill costs—could alter the landscape.

With Fastmarkets RISI mill intelligence tools, you gain perspective on how changes in various manufacturing costs could impact market conditions and mill operations. Build future market scenarios by manipulating changes in market, mill and capital variables with our cost analysis tools.



In the example above, we analyze how rising energy costs would impact Russian mills producing standard newsprint compared with their European counterparts. We compare existing market conditions with a model of how things would change if the cost of energy increased significantly for Russian mills. Russian mills are currently very cost competitive. However, if their energy costs increased, they would move to the third or fourth quartile. This would greatly increase their sensitivity to market prices and, ultimately, their risk of closure.
