BEDFORD, MA, June 9, 2011 (RISI) -For most of the last month, the RISI paper packaging economic team has been preparing their latest 15-year forecasts for their regional markets. We have developed a methodology that allows us to compile all of our regional forecasts into a master world model, which we can use to check that we have achieved a rough balance between global imports and exports. We also feed the preliminary results from our initial forecasts to the economists on the fiber team, since our paper and board production estimates are key drivers for global fiber demand.
