Industry Profile
Industry Overview
The article presents information about the U.S. paper and packaging industry. Containerboard demand has finally begun to pick up. Some growth in overall manufacturing during the second quarter has increased orders, the first improvement since the spring of 2001. However, there are worries that the second half of 2002 will not show the growth in manufacturing that was originally anticipated. Many U.S. containerboard producers have been plagued by losses in 2001. Although the U.S. industrial recovery has become precarious this summer, linerboard prices have risen.
