The rise of the hottest international pulp has lit

  • Detail

The rise of international pulp has little impact on the operation of state-owned enterprises

recently, the price of international pulp has been rising all the way. In order to prevent the rising cost, domestic paper makers are actively storing pulp, which in turn drives the rise of pulp price. The latest quotation shows that the international pulp price has increased by 10technyl reg; compared with the quotation in January; Redx is about% lower in material and production cost. However, analysts pointed out that due to the different structure of pulp used by various enterprises, it is expected that the rise in pulp prices will not have much impact on the operation of domestic enterprises

an import manager of Shandong Chenming Paper Group Co., Ltd., one of China's major paper makers, recently said that in the past few weeks, the company's pulp imports have increased significantly, but still can not meet the needs. Its pulp inventory can only maintain production for one month

an executive of China paper pulp import and Export Corporation, the largest pulp import company in China, also disclosed to the public that in the past January, domestic paper manufacturers have been very enthusiastic about ordering pulp. Affected by this, the pulp price has risen significantly in the past two months. According to the latest quotation, the required products can be printed locally. The CIF price of the benchmark northern bleached hardwood kraft pulp delivered in March to major ports in Asia has risen from $500/ton in February to $540/ton

the person said that the pulp with obvious price rise mainly came from North America and Northern Europe. There are many reasons for the price increase: first, the currencies in the above regions are appreciating relative to the US dollar, and the pulp price is often calculated in US dollars. Second, many pulp growing manufacturers in the above areas are carrying out technical production reduction, that is, stopping production for maintenance, resulting in a decline in pulp output

"of course, the enthusiastic orders from China are also an important reason." The person said that in order to prevent pressure on production costs due to rising prices in some utilization areas, many paper-making enterprises "plan ahead" and reserve pulp in advance. Analysts pointed out that although the price of pulp rose, it would not have much impact on the operation of domestic paper enterprises. Wang Feng, an analyst at Guotai Junan, believes that the structure of pulp used by Chinese enterprises is very complex, including pulp from northern Europe and North America, as well as pulp from Southeast Asia such as Indonesia and Russia. However, due to the rising shipping freight prices in recent years, Chinese enterprises are more likely to choose imported pulp from Indonesia and other Southeast Asian regions as well as Russia. "This price increase is mainly due to the pulp in North America and Northern Europe. The pulp price in Indonesia and other places may not rise at the same time. Therefore, it will not have a great impact on most Chinese paper-making enterprises." Wang Feng said so

China is one of the major pulp consumers and importers in the world. According to the data provided by the Chinese Customs Department, China imported 7.3 million tons of pulp in 2004, an increase of 21.2% over the previous year
