The Conference Board of Canada, 7 pages
June 21, 2013
This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Paper Products Industry.
- New Orders—New orders and shipments remain subdued, signalling continued weakness in production ahead.
- Corporate Profits—Rising corporate profits in Canada and the U.S.
have not, thus far, translated into higher demand for paper products.
- Emerging Markets—Industry growth will be driven by rising exports to emerging markets, such as China and India. Economic growth in these countries often goes hand in hand with increased paper demand.
