CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, July 31, 2013 (RISI) -US uncoated freesheet prices have been trending down since mid 2011, despite increasing costs and capacity closures. Prices peaked
in July 2011, and have declined $100 per ton over the last two years Furthermore, if you take inflation into account and look at real prices adjusted for producer price inflation (PPI), US uncoated freesheet prices are now approaching their lowest point since at least 2004, and are likely approaching their lowest point ever.
