At the end of September, producers of kraft and sulphite packaging paper reported very stable ordering in Germany in all segments. The market is characterised by balanced supply and demand right now. There are various views being heard about the implementation of price hikes. While the majority of paper producers generally confirm increases for machine glazed papers, there are varying reports about the specific amounts of the mark-ups. Very few of the converters surveyed completely denied that paper prices had been increased, yet they claimed there were still suppliers from whom they could get paper at the “old” prices.
