The German tinplate packaging market:
Passing on costs a major issue for the industry

23 Mar 2017 − 

In mid-March, almost all suppliers of tinplate packaging and caps interviewed by EUWID were busy trying to pass on the rising tinplate costs.

As reported already, as of 1 January the packaging and cap suppliers in Germany must fork out an additional 12-15% more for the upstream material.

EUWID was told that packaging and cap suppliers were only occasionally successful in passing on the hikes as of 1 January and sometimes this was implemented retroactively. In many cases this was implemented as of 1 February or 1 March, but not all negotiations with converters have been concluded yet.

 This is an excerpt from EUWID's quarterly report on the German tinplate packaging market. The full article is published in EUWID Packaging Markets 6/2017.
