Containerboard producers push prices, demand for corrugated products remains strong.
SCA announced that it would increase prices for its white and brown kraftliner in Europe by €50 per tonne. The new price is valid from 1 April 2021. Demand on the European kraftliner market continues to be strong, the company said.
The move follows on price increases for almost all of the containerboard grades in Europe in February. Paper producers are responding to increasing costs for pulp and recycled paper as well as other input costs.
Demand for kraftliner and recycled containerboard grades has been strong throughout Europe during the past six months.
