The German paper and board market:
High demand for sack kraft paper makes prices shoot up

26 Jul 2021 − 

The situation on the German market for sack kraft paper has escalated dramatically during the first half of the year.

Demand for brown sack kraft paper, in particular, has virtually exploded, observers said. Consequently, delivery dates could no longer be confirmed for amounts above and beyond what was set out in contracts. Order activity for white sack kraft paper has continued to pick up strongly. Lead times have now lengthened to up to 12 weeks.

As had looked likely during the last round of EUWID research, prices had shot up markedly during the second quarter.
