Sack kraft paper suppliers want to raise prices again

24 January 2018

Given the persisting supply shortage of sack kraft paper, manufacturers aim for further increases on the German market in the first quarter.

Market conditions that supported price increases for sack kraft paper in the fourth quarter continue to prevail on the German market at the beginning of 2018. Paper supply is still tight with manufacturers rationing supply and occasionally also pushing back delivery dates.

Therefore paper manufacturers have announced new price hikes to take effect from 1 January.
