By John Maine Wed, May 08, 2013

BEDFORD, MA, May 9, 2013 (RISI) -The North American newsprint market used to be much larger than the market in Western Europe. At its peak in 1999, the North American market was 13 million tonnes, while Western European demand never passed the 11 million tonne mark. Today, the North American market is a mere 4 million tonnes, while Western Europe is much larger at 7.4 million tonnes (using 2012 numbers).
