Italy's woodfree uncoated paper market continues to experience pressure on prices for offset reels and sheets. Price cuts typically standing at €10-20/t in November were followed by similar reductions in December, insiders said. Price pressure also persisted in the cut-size segment, however, most copy paper prices surprisingly left untouched at the previous month's level. EUWID sources described demand for woodfree uncoated paper as quiet to very weak in December. On the other hand, supply was said to be high but hard to judge with a large number of spot offers and special promotions featuring extremely low prices towards the end of the year.
