Romanian cardboard production, demand expand
Romania’s cardboard consumption rose to 322,000 tonnes in 2015, an increase of 13% compared with a year earlier.
With local demand for cardboard expanding, Romanian manufacturers are considering to raise their output capacities. Currently, Romania-based cardboard producers are enabled with a total capacity of about 723,000 tonnes per year.
Of this, about 55% is intended for export sales, mostly to other European Union member states.
In 2016, Romania’s demand for cardboard is expected to continue its growth.
