Russia: pulp and newsprint exports down in January-August 2016

(St Petersburg, Oct 28, 2016) In 2016, Russian export of logs, lumber, and plywood saw a positive trend. However, that did not happen to the country’s pulp and paper sector. In the first 8 months of the current year, Russian pulp and newsprint export reduced in value terms, says the foreign trade statistics published by the Russian Federal Customs Service.
Thus, in January-August 2016, Russian pulp exports reached 1.396 million tonnes in volume terms, that is 3.21% more than during the respective period of the last year when the figures came up to 1.352 million tonnes. However, the total value of the Russian pulp exported in the first 8 months of 2016 has shrunk year-on-year. In January-August 2016, Russian pulp exports reached US$652.2 million in value terms, while in the respective months of 2015 they came up to US$716.2 million. Therefore, there was an 8.9% decline year-on-year.
As to Russian newsprint, its export figures decreased both in value and in volume terms. In January-August 2016, Russia exported 702,400 tonnes of newsprint valued at US$278.2 million. In such a manner, Russian newsprint exports went down by 4.5% in volume terms (Jan-Aug 2015: 735,500 tonnes), and by 7.4% in value terms (Jan-Aug 2015: US$300.7 million). (Source: press release)
