The Polish packaging paper market:
Turnaround for brown recycled containerboard

13 Dec 2018 − 

A long period of rising and then stable recycled corrugated case material prices came to an end in November at the latest.

“Unfortunately, it is true, prices are falling,” one buyer in Poland said, expressing a sentiment apparently shared by many of his colleagues. They are not all that pleased about facing lower costs.

In reality, the corrugated board industry wanted to keep prices stable to avoid jeopardising their own sales prices, which had edged higher after months of hard work, sources said by way of explanation. Contacts told EUWID that this turnaround had not been prompted primarily by pressure from converters, but rather by a few recycled corrugated case material producers’ need to stem inventory building.
