Newsprint consumption by U.S. dailies increased 0.8%, according to the Pulp and Paper Products Council.
Total consumption, however, fell 2.4% after two months and 2% year-over-year.
Shipments from North American mills rose 0.5% compared to February of last year, due to a 9.8% increase in North American exports. Sales to the domestic market fell 1.3% year-over-year due to a flat North American demand — the drop in Canadian demand offset the growth in the U.S.
By the end of February, North American mill inventories had increased by 22,000 tonnes from the preceding month, closing at 358,000 tonnes.
