Magazine- Paper Publishing Shortages

Page history last edited by Zachary Larson 10 years, 2 months ago




  • Magazine paper shortages are becoming a challenge today for the Magazine Industry. Producing quality magazine paper requires a significant amount of money for most magazine publishers which may be causing people to switch to digital or other formats of producing their mass media. 



  • Forest products industry information provider RISI predicts a 20 percent loss of magazine paper usage within five years, a number that will rise to 51 percent within fifteen years. (IOANNA OPIDEE)



  • And even though a drop in demand might ordinarily mean a drop in price, the paper industry has become increasingly unstable, and such a fall in demand might lead to additional mill consolidation and closures, as well as greater under-utilization of machines—all of which, many publishers fear, could lead to dramatic prices.  (IOANNA OPIDEE)

 It is true that this segment – let’s call it “graphic paper” – is in trouble. The economic downturn has led to reduced spending in publicity in the press, and therefore to less paper consumption. Also, the abundant information available through electronic media is a serious competitor to the printed press. And this competition is likely to become even stronger.
