  • Detail

The purchasing power of China's pulp slowed down slightly.

this week, the price of Foex pulp reached a new high. The price of the European market's Foex index NBSK was quoted at US $1013.43/ton. Foreign pulp producers (North and South America) resisted the price increase of $30/ton in the Chinese market in April, which was resisted by buyers who could not plug in the guide line of load sensor directly. Affected by this, China's purchasing power of pulp slowed down slightly and digested the previous inventory. With the impact of the Japanese disaster, the demand for pulp in the Asian market is still increasing; In addition, the shutdown and overhaul of some paper mills in North America still maintain the stability of the needle pulp market; Although there is an incentive to resist the rise in pulp prices, the producers have no plans to eliminate the rise in prices

us NBSK: the bskp shipment volume to North America in January decreased by 7% compared with the same period last year. In terms of bhkp, the decline was even greater, reaching 12%. As Domtar closes Ashdown's paper mill, pulp capacity will be released and bhkp's supply will increase. With the continued stability of the global pulp market, especially bskp, the slowdown in North American shipments does not reflect the change in pulp prices. Since April 1, some manufacturers have implemented the price increase plan, with a range of $30/ton. At the beginning of 2011, the sales volume of pulp market was low, mostly due to the reduction of printing and writing paper production capacity. In terms of price, the US dollar caused the change in the price of coniferous pulp. With the pull of demand outside the US market and the shutdown and overhaul of some production capacity, the pulp market is still stable. However, the broad-leaved pulp is still nervous. Although the power to resist the price rise is still there, there is no plan to eliminate the price rise

European NBSK: bskp market is in short supply, and the price increase plan has been announced since April 1. The shipment volume in February was relatively good, although it was slightly lower than the actual output, resulting in a slight increase in the manufacturer's inventory. The condition of coniferous pulp and broadleaf pulp is still divided into two. The proportion of bskp pulp delivery volume to output reached 95% in February, and the delivery volume in March was even better. However, at the end of March and the beginning of April, China's purchasing power slowed down slightly and inventories decreased. The weakness of printing and writing paper in western countries is another negative news, while the reduction of fiber inventory and paper production capacity in the Japanese market is a positive driving force

European bhkp: Although the volume of bhkp shipments to EU member states in January increased by more than 10% (compared with the first two months of 2010), the data from the pulp and Paper Products Council showed that the volume of global bhkp shipments decreased by 4%1 Differentiation of stretching space: 1. In general, the stretching space of the horizontal tensile testing machine can reach more than 10 meters. Producer inventories rose for 2 days. Buyers resisted the increase of $30/ton of pulp. Japan needs more bhkp, while the purchasing power of the Chinese market has declined. In the European and North American markets, the price rise has become a reality, but the national plan to resist the price rise of broad-leaved pulp aims to gradually strengthen its strength. The weakness of the paper market without wood pulp and the difficulty of implementing the paper price rise also played a role. The manufacturer's inventory is still at a high level. The ratio of bhkp's shipment volume to output in January is less than 90%, and that of bskp is 93%

China bhkp: according to China's import data, the number of imported pulp that China should tighten in real time in February 2010 was very small, so the import data in 2011 will increase a lot year-on-year. The import of bleached kraft pulp increased by 36% in the first two months. The prices of major pulp varieties are on the rise. Bhkp is determined to resist the price rise. Chinese pulp buyers are still resisting the price rise of $30/ton, and there are still pulp stocks accumulated in the early stage available for use. The increase of pulp demand in Japan maintains the balance of the pulp market. With the commissioning of Chenming Zhanjiang pulp project in the third or fourth quarter, China's domestic bhkp capacity continues to increase
