The Polish recycled corrugated case material market: Tight market leads to higher prices

Suppliers of recycled corrugated case material hiked prices by €40/t in Poland in July and have tabled a demand for another €30/t in August. In view of the current shortage in supply, converters had no other option than to accept the hike of €40/t effective as of 1 or 6 July in the last round of price hikes called by all important manufacturers. Special arrangements like splitting the hike over two steps, pushing the date to the middle of the month or to reduce the hike to €35/t were the exception. There are no freely available volumes in the Polish market, say experts. Additional volumes are also difficult to obtain in the rest of Europe.
