Price pressure for coated and uncoated woodfree paper continues to be felt in the German market.
Industry experts cite high inventories and persistently weak demand, but above all the decline in pulp prices, as the reasons for this development. Against this background, buyers are pushing for discounts, and in some cases were able to get special deals.
Market insiders expect that shut-downs of capacity scheduled for later this year in combination with improved demand will help to stabilise the market.
