Pulp: 70% of your tissue costs, but what's happening in the pulp market?

10 April 2017, 16:15 – 16:40

Growth in global paper and board markets may look anaemic but there remains many positive trends in emerging markets and in both tissue and packaging grades. Positive dynamics in the tissue sector continue to fuel investments in market pulp supply and increase demand for virgin fibre. In the first part of his presentation, Pierre will summarize key developments in global paper and board markets, with a particular focus on the tissue sector. He will then present the outlook for market pulp, focusing on the main drivers underpinning demand and supply growth in the next five year-period. In conclusion, Pierre will discuss future tissue furnish trends, demonstrating how the sector will continue to play vital role for market pulp demand growth, and vice-versa.
