AF&PA Releases July 2012 Printing-Writing Paper Report

Monday, August 27, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

The American Forest & Paper Association has released its July 2012 Printing-Writing Paper Report.

According to the report, total printing-writing paper shipments decreased 3 percent last month compared to July 2011.  Shipments of coated mechanical papers posted the only year-over-year increase among the four major grades.  U.S. purchases (demand) of printing-writing papers also decreased by 4 percent in July.  Additional key findings include:

  • Shipments of coated mechanical papers increased compared to July 2011 – the third such year-over-year increase in 2012.
  • Shipments of coated free sheet papers reached a new high for the year but still decreased slightly year-over-year.
  • Shipments of uncoated free sheet papers were down year-over-year, the fifth consecutive year-over-year decrease.
  • Uncoated mechanical paper shipments continue the downward trend with sixteen consecutive month year-over-year decreases.
