UK prices for SC paper up in July

19 July 2017

Cuts in SC production capacity in the recent past are now having an impact on the SC market with prices going up in the UK in July.

Unlike other publication paper grades, SC is enjoying relatively good consumption throughout Europe, with a large amount of capacity eliminated in the recent past. All contacts confirm that the full impact is now apparent on the market.

Manufacturers report that their machines are running at full speed with long lead times, and they were now in a relatively strong position in price talks that have now come to a close. Most of the new prices will apply for the entire second half or, more rarely, for just a quarter in contracts with printers.
