The British cartonboard market: Industry suprised by price hike announcement for GC

In August the British cartonboard market remained very quiet.

Many market participants were on holiday at the end of the month. Although the volumes sold were once again below the prior-year levels in August, some market experts still see an improvement, especially versus July.

On the GC board market, one producer surprised British customers with an announcement that all its board grades would cost more, effective with deliveries from 1 October.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the British paper and board market. The EUWID Price Watch for August together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 19/2019.
