China is a key driver of the global pulp market.


As the largest consumer of market pulp in the world, China accounts for about a third of global pulp demand. Essentially, there are two markets in China: the import market, where producers sell cargoes on a CIF basis into major ports, and the domestic resale market, where Chinese traders sell that pulp on to end-users. Until very recently, the import market was the major price setter.

 
The launch of the SHFE pulp contract in November 2018 signaled a new era in Chinese pulp pricing. Volumes were impressive right from the start, with over 400 million tonnes of pulp traded in the first year.
