Unbleached Kraft Paper Price Trend for First Half of 2023

In the first and second quarters of 2023, the price trend of unbleached kraft paper suffered from decreased demand as a result of the high level of market stocks. This also contributed to lower production and price levels, particularly for unbleached grades. In addition to this, the adoption of plastic bag restrictions, which were led by the European Commission's efforts to reduce the use of lightweight plastic bags in the EU, has increased demand for unbleached kraft paper in Europe and had a beneficial effect on the sector.

On the other hand, as the shift in consumer behavior became apparent, e-commerce and meal delivery also boosted demand. Therefore, the substitution of single-use plastic has a bigger impact on the unbleached kraft paper market as compared to e-commerce, especially for Central Europe, since they currently have the highest use of lightweight plastic bags out of Europe. Traditional demand drivers, such as construction activity, showed constriction in their market dynamics due to high-interest rates and inflation and, in turn, hampered the growth of the unbleached kraft paper price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Unbleached Kraft Paper is expected to follow an oscillating trajectory as the demand for unbleached kraft paper is estimated to be affected by the ban on the usage of plastics and demand from downstream industries.
