The current vitality of pulping and papermaking in

  • Detail

According to the analysis and prediction of foreign professional media, the world's pulp and paper production in 2003 will be significantly better than that in 2002, which requires the energy-saving transformation of old houses. Most of the investment plans will have an impact on the overall economy. After the recession of the past two and a half years, it is expected that the world demand for paper and paperboard in 2003 will be consistent with the development of the world economy as a whole and will be improved accordingly. The growth of advertising consumption in developed countries will increase the consumption of paper. In addition, due to the further improvement of industrial output and the increase of equipment and devices in developing countries, the amount of packaging paper has increased

in 2003, the world demand for paper and paperboard is expected to increase by 3.5%, and the output will increase by 11million tons. With the rapid growth of demand, the operating rate of paper and paperboard in the world will be significantly improved, but the capacity expansion will remain low

in 2003, 18 new paper and paperboard production lines were put into operation in China, which will increase the production capacity by 3.1 million tons. Chinese manufacturers continue to increase investment, which will drive world economic growth

the production capacity of North American paper and paperboard will continue to decline in 2003, but the decline will slow down compared with the past two years. The growth rate of production capacity in Western Europe has declined for three consecutive years due to the decline in manufacturers' profits. Compared with China, the increase of paper and paperboard production capacity in Western Europe will be less than 1million tons this year. This year, the world's paper and paperboard operating rate is planned to average 89%

the price of most paper and paperboard began to rise in the second quarter of this year, and will remain stable in the first quarter. Paper and paperboard effectively meet the market in the field of composite materials, but excess capacity and sluggish consumption forced end consumer goods manufacturers to meet the demand for price reduction and promotion. The price rise of common board was mainly caused by the increase in fiber costs, especially the increase in the price of waste paper

most of the production capacity expansion in Western Europe and China mainly depends on increasing the amount of waste paper fiber, and these expanded capacities have increased the pressure on raw material supply, resulting in large fluctuations in waste paper prices

it is expected that the pricing of paper and paperboard will have a good profit expectation by the end of this year, and there will also be a better prospect in 2004
