Woodfree uncoated paper prices up in France

Price development for
woodfree uncoated offset sheets
24 Oct 2017 − 

Despite the general structural decline in graphic paper consumption, there is an upward price trend for woodfree uncoated paper in France. Those who had not already increased prices in September did so in October.

Prices remain buoyant on France's woodfree uncoated paper market. The latest round of price talks paved the way for the first mark-ups in September. Other producers and buyers then mostly followed suit at the start of October or during the course of the month.

It is noteworthy that the trend in prices is clearly pointing higher. Overall demand in France varies from one grade to another, but is deemed to be positive on the whole. Quite a few producers found that somewhat slower order intake had followed a strong September, although demand is generally described as satisfactory.
