Tissue Market Called Dynamic: Fastmarkets RISI NA Conference, Tissue360º Spring/Summer 2020

Esko Uutela, FastmarketRISI’s well-known tissue principal, gave an update on the global situation at the FastmarketsRISI North American forest products outlook conference held in October 2019. He called the market “dynamic,” with 38.8 million metric tons being consumed in 2018.

North America is still the biggest market, but China is closing the gap quickly. It has been the biggest producer of tissue since 2015.

As many know, the sector has shown steady growth, although Uutela called 2018 a “dis-appointment” with only 2.6 percent global demand growth compared with a 3.5 percent average over the past few years.
