The German steel sheet packaging market

The upward trend that remained in place on Germany's steel sheet packaging market until this summer has slowed since around the middle of August. Market insiders report that demand from the standard chemicals sector has softened in particular, while speciality chemicals are typically more sought-after. Ordering from the mineral oil industry was said to be steady, with demand from the food and pharmaceuticals sector still pretty decent. Exports to Asia were also still faring well in some instances, sources noted. Market players provided a variety of explanations as to why demand had tumbled.
