Sluggish Q3 demand for cores and coreboard, prices soften on the market in Germany


Downward trend in third quarter prices due to weak demand and low priced imports.

Business on the German market for cores and coreboard was rather weak over the summer. As of the end of the second quarter, business slowed more than usual and the industry started to feel the negative effects of the pandemic. This was especially noticeable in the business with cores for the graphic paper and the textile industry.
