Price negotiations on the German recovered paper market did not lose any of their intensity in the final month of 2017. Paper mills again sought to secure sizeable markdowns for mass grades, as it had appeared likely they would do early in December. Their success in some cases was attributable to several factors: exceptionally good arisings, well-filled warehouses and the continued lack of ordering activity by buyers in the People’s Republic of China.

This was primarily true for the mass grades of mixed paper and supermarket paper and board whose prices were pushed significantly lower again significantly again compared with November. "We had the upper hand thanks to terrific arisings, especially from businesses, and the fact that we had stocked up our warehouses in time," one mill operator told EUWID.
