Board prices remain unchanged in the German market in November. Discussions about mark-ups for GC board are still underway.
Negotiations for prices of GC board on the market in Germany have so far not been successful. No contracts have been signed at higher prices by the middle of November. While folding carton manufacturers see no grounds for a hike other than the wish to stabilise prices, manufacturers say they are encountering stiff resistance by their customers and are unwilling to touch existing contracts before the end of the year. The market for GD board and greyboard is reportedly stable.
Prices for GD board and greyboard are not being discussed, or if so then only for individual orders. Price negotiations are not expected to take place before the end of the year although the greyboard market in particular is still in good shape with delivery periods amounting to more than three weeks.
