This post is our Blog’s first “commercial”. We hope it will be of interest to our primary group of readers - pulp and paper professionals.
Two years ago Kevin Mason (Equity Research Associates) and I offered a special multi-client report in which we provided a long-term perspective on the publication paper grades. We analyzed the markets and made both supply and demand forecasts for the key grades (newsprint, SC-A, coated groundwood, and coated free sheet). A number of the companies that purchased the report two years ago have asked for an updated long term forecast.
We are going to provide a new report this September, but not exactly a sequel. A key emphasis will be on the impact of electronic communication. In order to gain expertise on the new technologies, we brought a third partner into the mix. We are very pleased to be working with mediaIDEAS, a leading publishing technology and research firm, which investigates and reports on the development of the e-reader, electronic tablets, smart phones, etc.
The special report we are preparing will review how electronic communication has impacted paper demand over the last two decades, and more importantly, what can be expected over the next 10 years. We will also cover, of course, all the traditional factors that relate to paper demand as well – including environmental issues, recycling, international trade, consolidation, economic and energy issues, etc.
A two-page promotion that provides more specifics can be found by clicking on the following link: The Impact of Digital Media and E-reading Platforms on Paper Demand 2010-2020. There is a reduced cost for those who order before July 31, so get your orders in soon.
Thanks very much for your support.
