Sailing in a world of volatility and uncertainty
Global market conditions have changed rapidly during the past year. On one hand, the synchronized improvement in global economies have lifted demand of boxboard across the globe. However, other packaging material substitutes continue to pose a risk to our industry. On the other, significant changes in supply will result in the tightening of global markets. Unsurprisingly, China is playing a large role in the tightening of global market conditions. Not only is capacity growing much slower than before, but ongoing PfR bans are threatening production of paper and board in the coming years.
