The French paper and board market:
Calm business in many segments in August

10 Sep 2018 − 

With the summer holidays having been in full swing, the usual calm business was the order of the day in many segments of the French paper and cartonboard market in August.

Most prices stayed the same, with the next round of price talks on the horizon for a number of grades.

White-top kraftliner and semi-chemical fluting manufacturers want to catch up to prices for brown grades. Until recently, buyers and sellers have discussed higher prices to take effect from 1 September, with conversations also lately revolving around mark-ups for white-top testliner.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the French paper and board market. The EUWID Price Watch for August together with the complete report were published in EUWID Packaging Markets 18/2018.
