Bleached Board/SBS Markets Snug

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The U.S. markets for bleached board/SBS are currently "very snug," according to Mark Wilde, senior analyst with Deutsche Bank. All of the major NA producers (representing ˜75% of capacity) have announced $50-$60/ton price increases on cupstock, platestock, and bristol grades, effective this month and/or in July. This is the second price increase for the year after producers implemented the full $50/ton March cupstock price increase by May. The current price increases are driven by seasonally stronger demand., Wilde says.
