New price increase announcement baffles German containerboard market

20 Jun 2017 − 

Most industry observers had recently anticipated unchanged prices for recycled containerboard over the summer months; so the latest coup by an integrated producer caught them by surprise.

The manufacturer who announced the increase cited strong demand and consistently rising production costs as reasons for the new announcement. EUWID sources feel that a recovery in recovered paper prices after a short phase of decline had likely played a key role in this announcement.
