The German kraftliner market:
Supply was still tight at the end of May

19 Jun 2017 − 

At the end of May, market participants were still telling EUWID that supplies of unbleached kraftliner remained tight.

In several cases, respondents in Germany confirmed that they expect the situation to be similar in the coming weeks. Furthermore, volumes were still being limited in May, according to respondents, who explained that there were also overbooked producers and delivery times were untenable.

Given ongoing shortages and strong demand, producers were able to lift prices by another €50/t in a single step as of 1 May.


This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German kraftliner market. The complete report is published in EUWID Packaging Markets 12/2017.
