Composite can prices are moving higher in North America on tariffs on tinplate, higher PET / OPP film prices and pending price increases on uncoated recycled boxboard.
Input costs for tinplate, aluminum foil, OPP films and recycled boxboard have increased for 2018 agreements and this is pressuring composite can prices higher. New tariffs will be inflationary for composite can inputs for tinplate and aluminum foil. And a new round of pricing is on the table for uncoated recycled boxboard (URB).
Aluminum foil, uncoated recycled boxboard (URB) and tinplate prices were higher in April.
