Kraftliner prices went up in February but producers did not succeed in implementing the full €50-60/t price hike.

Things seem to have calmed down a little on the market for kraftliner in Germany, at least when it come to supply. Buyers say it has become comparatively unproblematic to source material and recently they have been able to get their hands on additional volumes again. However, with producers' spring maintenance measures fast approaching, the kraftliner market may become tighter once more, according to several EUWID sources.

Sellers succeeded in raising their prices in February but not to the full extent they wanted. Some producers are considering implementing a second instalment in order to reach the asking €50-60/t price increase announced in December or January.
