The French packaging paper market:
All grades of corrugated case material under pressure

30 Jul 2020 − 

In France, prices for all types of corrugated case material are feeling the pinch amidst much lower recovered paper prices and average demand at best overall.

In many instances, the price hike instituted this spring was reversed for July or August deliveries. Most brown recycled corrugated case material has cost less since 1 July. Prices for white grades also started to fall in July. Brown kraftliner prices have also reversed course.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the French paper and board market. The EUWID Price Watch for July together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 16/2020.
