Newsprint prices

US newsprint prices have fallen 5% since the beginning of the year, ending a two-year period of stability in the market.

A decline in domestic demand from both newspaper producers and other buyers lowered domestic shipments in June by 6% y-o-y, reducing newsprint prices in the US. In the first seven months of 2013, demand decreased 10% y-o-y, leading producers to begin to reduce their output. However, the situation was partly balanced by rising exports to Asian countries, especially India, where the INR recently weakened against USD.
