The German envelope and shipping bag paper market: Another price hike on the horizon

Envelope and shipping bag manufacturers in Germany reported strong order intake shortly ahead of Christmas 2017.

High demand seen over the last few months persisted especially for 80 g white woodfree envelope paper, sources said. Additional volumes were also not available.

Manufacturers found it easy to implement further hikes of €30/t in the fourth quarter, after having put through a similar increase in the previous one.

Producers of 80 g white woodfree envelope paper had tabled demands for another €20-30/t for 2018, which had reportedly been already fixed in many contracts.
