According to Euwid, newsprint supply in Poland has been extremely tight in 2018 and spot prices have been soaring. The reason for this is that the country’s only publication paper machine at IP's facility in Kwidzyn has been offline since mid-March.

The global newsprint market is also tight due to permanent machine shutdowns and increased demand for finished paper from China, according to Euwid.
