    PIX Pulp 指数 19.11.13

    欧洲 NBSK 纸浆 伦敦 Pulp Week 指数无重大变动。供应商对交易量持乐观态度,预期价格将在近期持续走高。采购方看好交易量增长的原因是:BHKP 产能即将增加;造纸极关停后,综合型生产商推出更多商品浆;以及随着中国政府对特定溶解浆生产商征收反倾销税,溶解浆产能可能用于绒毛浆或造纸用纸浆的生产。虽然上述预测存在多种可能性,但这一决策显然降低了溶解浆加工的吸引力。据采购方表示,纸品价格难以提升是阻碍纸浆价格提升的另一障碍。 至少在眼下,软木浆市场仍保持稳健态势。欧元对美元汇率上升 0.2%。PIX NBSK 纸浆指数上涨 53 美分,即 0.06%,收于 896.51 美元/吨。将美元价值换算为欧元时,由于欧元对美元汇率的上升,基准指数下降 1.05 欧元,即 0.16%,PIX NBSKP 指数收于 666.05 欧元/吨。 欧洲 BHK 纸浆 九月硬木浆装运量上升后,BHKP 生产商库存大幅下降。十月份的数据因对十二月的价格走势(或不景气)具有决定性影响而备受关注。汇率变动仍是关键的不确定因素。在欧洲市场,十月图纸和特种纸订单的增加致使消费库存量较低,采购量有所增加。但在全球其他市场,九月较高的交货量(交货产能比为 104%)意味着采购方纸浆库存上升。上周,欧元对美元汇率上升 0.2%。随着欧元再次走强,去除最高和最低的 10% 报价后,PIX...

    把握卫生纸行业的未来

    作为阿根廷优质 BEK 纸浆生产商,Celulosa Argentina 在这个快速增长的市场中拥有生产卫生纸的“战略优势”。《世界卫生纸》就市场战略和投资话题对该企业进行了采访。 对于 Celulosa Argentina 而言,选择在此刻进入卫生纸市场可谓耐人寻味。虽然阿根廷经济问题不断,但该国卫生纸行业却捷报频传,在追赶全球卫生纸行业 3-4% 的增长速度的同时,几乎所有快速消费品 (FMCG) 类别都呈现出大幅增长的态势。 2013 年,阿根廷的零售卫生纸市场预计实现 28% 的价值增长,而人均消费数量维持在 3.2 千克上下,这一数据在过去五年间基本保持不变。 Celulosa Argentina 主席 Douglas Albrecht 表示,在这个快速增长的市场中,公司拥有生产卫生纸的“战略优势”,这正是公司进军卫生纸行业的初衷。他说道:“我们是阿根廷唯一的优质 BEK 纸浆生厂商。我们拥有重要的物流协同效应,可以与母卷生产形成整体。凭借卓越的生产经营及强大的基础设施,我们可以响应各大品牌公司的需求,为其提供更为完整的解决方案,协助其专注于消费产品业务,我们自身则将工业生产视为中心,这也是我们的核心能力所在。” 根据公司的卫生纸业务拓展计划,Celulosa Argentina每年将向市场新增30000 吨优质卫生纸。公司已于九月签收一台由 Voith 提供的全新机器,计划在位于 Santa Fe 的...
