Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The global pulp market remains tight, Mark Wilde, senior analyst with Deutsche Bank, notes. Reports suggest that N.A. NSBK prices are set to rise by another $40/metric ton this month. This would take N.A. NBSK prices to its highest ever level in nominal terms. In Europe, producers have set NBSK at $960-$970/metric ton for May. With recently announced initiatives, fluff pulp prices are set to rise $20-$40/ton in both the U.S. and Europe, pushing prices to over $1,000/metric ton, Wilde says.
