It proves hard for manufacturers of coated woodfree paper to raise their price on the UK market. According to manufacturers, demand for coated woodfree paper is softer than in the uncoated paper business. The market is still encountering structural weakness in demand that has been seen since the financial crisis, with no prospects of any change in May, either. The sharp downturn in apparent consumption dating back to 2009 weakened but had not recovered last year. The first few months of this year also tended to indicate additional declines.
