The German cartonboard market: Pause in price negotiations for recycled corrugated case material in June

It seems the German market for recycled corrugated case material is taking a breather in June from its marathon talks. After trying and failing in recent months to raise prices, only a few producers dared to make another attempt in June, aiming for a new adjustment. The majority of suppliers are waiting until mid-summer to try again, when they expect perfect conditions for a price hike thanks to high demand from Europe and overseas. According to EUWID respondents, July is traditionally a good month and although August business is not as strong, it is no longer as weak as it used to be when everything in southern Europe came to a standstill.
