NPTA Quarterly Economic Report: Q1 2022
A new report from Armada Corporate Intelligence sheds light on how the paper industry performed in the first quarter of 2022. The report, which is an exclusive benefit for NPTA members, touches on the macroeconomic view of the industry, upstream conditions, producer prices, downstream demand, the supply chain and the industry outlook. Some highlights from the report include:
- A full-scale recession (as defined by two consecutive quarters of negative growth) seems unlikely, but the estimate of GDP growth this year has been downgraded from 4% to 2%.
- Paper demand remains strong and the outlook for certain segments of the industry is positive, even if the US economy starts to slow.
- The supply chain situation remains uncertain.
