Respondents in the unbleached kraftliner segment in France reported stable prices in November and December. Manufacturers still described their order books as satisfactory, but the market in December was considered notably more relaxed than in the third quarter. Supply had increased and some market observers believed it would continue to do so in January. After the recent hikes, prices for white-top kraftliner had also stabilised while the same was true for semi-chemical fluting although these two segments were considered to be more dynamic and robust compared with the unbleached segment.
