The recycled graphic paper market in Germany is mostly stable, but without any positive impetus. Manufacturers are therefore considering expanding other types of activities in their portfolios.
The business situation appears to have weakened for recycled graphic paper in Germany in May. Manufacturers of recycled office paper say that shipments are stable, and sometimes growing slightly, but expect that this will be offset in the long term by prices that are at best steady and more likely heading slightly downwards.
Producers want to fill any gaps in their order books by expanding other types of activities in their portfolios. According to observers, there are definitely still opportunities for recycled paper, such as in the fields of digital printing and school supplies.
