Demand for cartonboard and folding boxes in Germany remains strong in August

30 Aug 2021 − 

Recycled cartonboard prices remain in steady upward spiral.

The cartonboard market in Germany remains tight in August. Market sources say there is inadequate supply of fresh fibre grades. Suppliers are said to have even cancelled confirmed orders occasionally. As the month comes to an end, a first supplier has informed customers of a hefty price hike to take effect as of 1 November. Recycled grades are also in short supply.

In the market for corrugated case material fresh price hikes have been announced from September. Demand is still strong and fibre costs remain high.

This article is an excerpt from EUWID's report on the market for corrugated case material and cartonboard in Germany.
