Market Analysis

Wastepaper Market: from the end of April to the beginning of May, the market of waste paper was generally stable, with a slight fluctuation during the period. After May Day holiday, the market of wastepaper is generally under explored. Most paper mills reduce the purchase price of wastepaper by about 30-50 RMB/ ton. On May 8, the paper enterprises quickly raised their prices again to boost market confidence. The price of wastepaper rose again. The average purchase price of Grade A in the waste paper market was 1,828 RMB/ ton, and the average daily price rose by 24 RMB/ ton. In the next few days, most of the domestic wastepaper market operated stably, and individual paper enterprises in Jiangsu and Guangdong increased 30 RMB/ ton, while other market prices remained stable. At present, the demand of domestic downstream products and packaging paper is weak as a whole, and the inventory of individual paper enterprises is large, so the waste paper procurement is relatively light at present.

Corrugated paper market: in May, the corrugated paper market is not volatile at present, and the overall market is still stable. At present, the quotation of leading paper enterprises is temporarily stable, and some small and medium-sized enterprises have increased their prices by 50 RMB/ ton. There are differences in the stock and demand of Corrugated paper market in various regions, among which, in Shandong Province, the order and shipment of enterprises are getting better, the upward pressure on the cost of raw materials is increasing, and it is expected that the price will increase steadily in the short term; in Jiangsu and Zhejiang Province, the cost of raw materials and waste paper can still be supported, but the downstream orders are general, and the price is mainly stable; in Sichuan, Yunnan and other places, the delivery is still not smooth, the inventory is slightly under pressure, and the local industry insiders said that they would wait and see in the short term.

Matket Forecast

According to SunSirs paper analysts, at present, the overall purchase price of wastepaper continues to be mainly explored, but the range is relatively small. It is expected that in the short term, the mentality of all linked industries in the market will stabilize, and the overall change of market situation needs to pay more attention to upstream and downstream supply and demand and other factors.
