All signs pointing to a price increase for newsprint in Germany

07 Nov 2017 − 

Newsprint manufacturers are calling for a substantial price increase in Germany from January 2018 onwards.

Lucrative export opportunities and the lack of imports from Russia and North America, combined with good domestic demand, have had an impact on the balance between supply and demand on the German newsprint market. Manufacturers are reporting very good workloads and say they are unable to serve the spot market at present.

Consequently, paper manufacturers sent a clear message to the market during the Ifra-Expo, indicating they want newsprint shipments to cost significantly more from January 2018 onwards.
