Polish cartonboard market: Virgin fibre board market characterised by uncertainty and price pressure

The situation in the Polish virgin fibre board segment is a bit more strained than for recycled board. Several producers and converters spoke of sustained price pressure, uncertainty and high willingness to switch suppliers on the part of wholesalers as well as small converters. Competition to woo Polish customers is very pronounced between local producers and other European suppliers, market players reported in September. The two camps, in turn, are said to be competing against low-priced GC board offers from Asia which Polish merchants have increasingly included in their product portfolio.
