Waste paper baler supply and demand receives the impact of logistics after the Spring Festival
Affected by the prolongation of the Spring Festival holiday, the operating rate of paper enterprises is not high, and downstream enterprises are still in a state of rest.
In terms of logistics: transportation is blocked, and the new order volume is not large. At present, most local production enterprises resume work in accordance with the postponement plan, but the possibility of postponing the resumption of production in some regional production companies will not be ruled out.
In terms of raw materials: most baling stations have slow resumption of work, and domestic baling stations
have a low rate of resumption, and paper mills' procurement enthusiasm and arrival volume are relatively low. Affected by the simultaneous delay in supply and demand in the waste paper market, the current price of waste paper is temporarily stable. The amount of approval for waste is reduced, and it is also in the off-season of seasonal trading. Most domestic paper mills choose to wait and see.
On the supply side: Delaying the start of the paper mill has reduced the supply of finished paper to a certain extent, but some traders and downstream customers have been actively preparing for the warehouse before the holiday. In addition, during the Spring Festival, the production lines of large-scale enterprises normally schedule or rotate production, and corrugated box board. The overall supply of the paper market is still relatively sufficient, and the base paper inventory of enterprises that regularly schedule production and rotate production has increased slightly.
On the demand side: the holiday market is mainly closed, and downstream demand recovery is relatively slow after the holiday. Coupled with poor logistics and transportation, paper mills mainly focus on small-scale supply in the surrounding area, and mainly to protect the packaging needs of medical supplies. The overall market demand recovery will take time.
It is expected that in the short term, the corrugated and containerboard market will continue to run lightly and steadily. As downstream demand gradually recovers, the end of February or early March may usher in a small-scale outbreak, but the duration is expected to be short. Therefore, the price of corrugated and containerboard is expected to increase slightly.as more information ,please visit :www.nkbaler.com
