UK Uncoated Paper Market Better Than Feared
Aug. 18, 2009 - So far in August, the woodfree uncoated paper market in the UK has been slightly better than feared in terms of deliveries, according to EUWID.
EUWID said it was told by a manufacturer that demand has been weak — as it usually is in the holiday season — but not much weaker than is normally the case.
In other words, compared with earlier years, order intake in the holiday month of August has been relatively normal, EUWID noted.
However, EUWID cautioned that the market is still more of a buyer’s market, and price pressure has not entirely vanished even if most grades have been available for the same prices in August as in July.
