Just like the re-enactment of the eve of the soaring price of paper in 2018, starting from waste paper, the packaging paper market in the second week of April may reproduce the skyrocketing market.
On April 4, the data of the official website of the Solid Waste Center showed that the approval of the fifth batch of waste paper import licenses in 2019 approved 2.256 million tons. Interestingly, the influx of a large amount of waste has not caused the panic of the country, but the national waste price that bottomed out before the Qingming began to rebound. Starting from the mountain eagle, Lee & Man and the dragon followed up, and the purchase price of waste paper rose by up to 200 yuan! More than ten early, medium and small paper mills in the north could not withstand the pressure and raised the price of raw paper. Some industry insiders predict that in early May, it is likely to reproduce the soaring price of raw paper in the second quarter of 2018.
It is worth noting that, compared with the price trend of the corrugated paper of the statistical bureau in the first two quarters of 2018 and 2019, the price curve shows a subtle similarity. In the second quarter of this year, whether the price of raw paper can be revived will reproduce the 2018 skyrocketing situation. I believe that the results will be seen by the end of May.
In 2018 and 2019, the price of corrugated paper was red in 2019.
On April 15, 2019, the maximum increase was 80 yuan/ton, and the highest was 40 yuan/ton. The waste paper index was 1977.67, up by 0.07% from the previous month.
