AFRY’s new World Fibre Outlook up to 2035 edition features online access to all data and graphics.

The study provides an in-depth analysis and long-term forecasts of major economic and market trends affecting the demand, supply and pricing of papermaking fibre and speciality pulps in all key regions of the world. The first-ever issue of this series of studies was published in 1985, and since then, the study has become an industry standard and an eagerly anticipated reference report for all business participants, including pulp and paper companies, various suppliers and solution providers, investors, financiers, institutions, pulp traders, logistic companies and other interest groups.

How it works Arrow pointing right

In addition to the report, data and charts will be available and visualised via a browser-based online platform.

Users can independently decide on the required level of detail. This allows for alternatives and flexibility to download data behind the report charts. A ‘free browse’ option enables you to merge data across regions or grades. Annual data and forecast updates will be available through the online platform as well. Overall, this lets you combine, visualise and download the most recent data as per your needs.

In addition to the full PDF report, we are offering digital access for one or three years. The first option includes digital data tool access for up to 10 users for 12 months, which can also be customised to include additional users. The second option also includes data and forecasts for subsequent two years, updated in the fourth quarter of 2022 and 2023.

We would be delighted to schedule a demo of the digital tool upon request.
