Although container availability has improved recently, recovered paper exports to Asia are still sluggish, keeping prices on many domestic markets in Europe under pressure.
The German recovered paper market has seen another decline in prices for ordinary grades in June. Prices remained under pressure due to sluggish deep sea exports to Asia and slow demand from buyers on the domestic market. Market insiders report that collection is relatively good with a number of regions reporting lower collection volumes.
Market- and holiday-related downtime in the paper industry left its marks on recovered paper demand, especially in the packaging paper and board sector, respondents in the market say. Many merchants’ and buyers’ stock volumes are now relatively high.
