Decent demand from several sides has paved the way for initial price increases for ordinary grades on France’s recovered paper market.
Mixed paper and board (1.02) and old corrugated containers (1.05) are more expensive than in February. Prices for deinking grades and high grades did not alter, although market players believe that this might happen in April.
Several minor factors influenced pricing for ordinary grades in March. According to market players, French recovered paper is more sought-after right now. In March, a great deal of recovered paper had been delivered to Spain, in particular, where prices for mass grades had increased by 10 €/t, insiders said.
