Overheating investment activity in North American tissue business

STARNBERG, GERMANY, July 11, 2014 (RISI) -After the Great Recession of 2009 and the recovery in 2010, North American tissue supply and demand have been well balanced, and from time to time, the business has been a seller's rather than a buyer's market. This was the case in the first nine months of 2012. Just before the first wave of new capacity started to come on stream, the US tissue market was very tight and independent converters were having problems procuring parent rolls for their converting plants. As a result, imports from overseas increased.
