Industry Intelligence reports from International Pulp Week 2012 in Vancouver, British Columbia; finds market slowdown in China will likely continue through Q2, last through all or most of Northern Hemisphere summer
May 17, 2012
– Industry Intelligence Inc., a market intelligence and information management company serving the forest products, packaging, and food and beverage industries, released its reporting from International Pulp Week 2012.
During International Pulp Week in Vancouver, Canada, industry players said the market slowdown in China would likely continue through the second quarter and could very well last through all or most of the Northern Hemisphere summer, when business typically slows. This could affect global prices of eucalyptus pulp, for which producers are attempting another round of increases, and global softwood pulp prices, which currently are flat to decreasing. Reduced softwood pulp prices could lead to shuts of mills that can't cover their costs, but this, in turn, would lead to higher prices and mill restarts.
International Pulp Week, an annual gathering held in May and organized by the Pulp and Paper Products Council in Montreal, includes presentations about industry issues as well as opportunities for meeting clients and colleagues.
Senior editor Diane Keaton reported on this year’s event last week and her work appears on Industry Intelligence Inc. market intelligence services. She has covered the pulp industry for Industry Intelligence Inc. for the past 12 years, since the company began as Forestweb Inc. in 1999.
“Industry Intelligence has in-depth pulp coverage that our clients rely on to make decisions about their business,” said Rami Ghandour, CEO of Industry Intelligence. “Diane continues to be a go-to source for her coverage of the pulp market including price fluctuations.”
Industry Intelligence Inc. features weekly original reporting on the pulp industry by Diane Keaton as well as news, data and analysis as part of its market intelligence service.
