Data show that the first half of this year, the International Wood pulp Price is always higher among. As of the end of August, the U.S. market coniferous pulp offer up to 800 U.S. dollars / ton, up 70.05 U.S. dollars early next year, or nearly 10%; hardwood pulp to 716 U.S. dollars / ton, up 45 per year.

With the increasingly high grade trends paper, wood pulp, the most important raw materials. However, due to China’s forestry resources are extremely scarce, the decision of the high volume of imports of wood pulp has remained above 60% import dependency. To this end, “15” period, the state will pulp, paper and paperboard include “Industrial Restructuring Guiding Catalog” and “Foreign Investment Industry Guidance Catalogue “in the encouraged category, so that the paper industry developed rapidly.

Increased bargaining power With the domestic paper
enterprises to speed up the pace of merger and reorganization, the cost of basic raw materials close to the case, the large-scale production to large domestic enterprises of the expansion path of paper possible, the industry also will strengthen the bargaining power.
Early as last year, to Newsprint And Coated Paper Paper industry, represented through the winter, in addition to capacity expansion led to oversupply, there is one important reason is that industrial decentralization, bargaining power is not strong. Although the rate of increase in pulp continued to increase, but most of the paper for fear of losing corporate customers can not easily raise prices.
