Södra announced that it will increase its market price for NBSK (Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft) pulp deliveries in Europe to USD 810 per tonne, effective April 1, 2016.

In a press release, Södra said, “Following a period of downward price pressure last year, the softwood pulp market stabilized in early 2016 and the outlook is now improving. As a result, a number of global price initiatives have already been announced.”

Magnus Björkman, President of Södra Cell International, commented, “We know from experience that the spring is typically characterized by stronger demand than the start of the year, and that this is also a time for maintenance stoppages in Europe. That's why we anticipate that the market will tighten even further.
