In the view of limited supply and order backlogs, manufacturers of uncoated fine paper were able to charge more for deliveries in April. 

Uncoated fine paper manufacturers are determined to go hike prices further as long as pulp costs also continue to rise. The price increase achieved this month was not sufficient to cover the higher pulp prices paper makers had to pay so far – and pulp prices were expected to continue their upward trend, market experts pointed out.
