Newsprint consumption in the U.S. fell 3% in January. The decline was largely due to the 1.7% drop in consumption by daily newspapers, according to the Pulp and Paper Products Council.
Shipments from North American mills rose slightly compared to January 2003 at 0.6%, due to a 7.6% increase in North American exports. Though shipments to Western Europe were down in January, gains in deliveries to all other major overseas markets were registered. Shipments to North America declined close to 1%, due to a 2.6% drop of Canadian demand, whereas U.S. demand was flat.
Mill inventories increased by 34,000 tonnes from the preceding month, closing at 336,000 tonnes.
