BEDFORD, MA, Aug. 27, 2013 (RISI) -A tsunami of new BHK market pulp capacity is about to hit the pulp market.

But price developments in the second half of 2014 and in 2015 could surprise some doom and gloomers, especially since most of the analysis so far has been focused on the amount of newmarketBHK capacity to be started up, and much less on what is happening tototalBHK capacity.
