Paper picture stays dim for publishers

Published on .

There was no bright news for print-based media contained in the annual capacity survey from the American Forest & Product Association released Dec. 8. Newsprint capacity is expected to grow only 0.3% per year from 1995 through 1998. The two major grades of papers favored by magazine publishers are also expected to remain in tight supply with expansion rates below historical norms. Coated groundwood capacity will average only 1.4% growth for the 1995-98 period. One minor bright spot: Coated freesheet will have a 3.1% annual growth rate.
