Paper manufacturers are reporting brisk ordering, good workloads and lengthening lead times in July.
Woodfree coated and uncoated paper manufacturers doing business on the UK market have come close to making up for last year's price erosion caused by the pandemic by raising their prices twice in April/May and July 2021. Much higher prices have been charged on the British market since 1 July at the latest after a number of contracts lasting until 30 June expired.
Despite strengthening demand and higher sales prices, manufacturers stress that they are still in a much worse position than they were before the pandemic arrived and prices plunged given what has happened on the cost front.
