【Opinions and Suggestions】
The actual spot price of imported wood pulp decreased slightly, and the trading volume remained modest. Some cultural paper companies have issued a letter of price increase for base paper, but the downstream paper market as a whole shows a weaker shipment situation and lack of market confidence. They continue to operate cautiously and maintain on-demand procurement. The market for offset paper is stable. Large-scale paper mills started normally; small and medium-sized paper mills had weak orders, and the price range was adjusted within a narrow range. Downstream distributors have mediocre orders and are cautious in their trading. Facing price increases, they still lack confidence in the market outlook. Downstream printing factories have limited orders, and demand is not good enough. The coated paper market fluctuated in a range. The phenomenon of paper companies shutting down and converting to production still exists. Downstream dealers have few transactions and lack confidence in the market outlook. They are not motivated to trade in the face of price increase letters and shutdown letters. In the face of high-priced orders, downstream printing factories are less inclined to replenish inventory, and more to maintain rigid demand. Recently, wood pulp and raw paper companies intend to continue to raise prices, but terminal purchases are not prosperous. Pulp prices are expected to consolidate within a narrow range and volatility will fall.
