Exports of OCC dropped by around 13,000 tonnes in July compared to June.

At 175,970 tonnes in July, this was lower than 189,234 tonnes in June.

Interestingly, exports to China and India both increased in July.

Although low historically, exports to China increased to 68,161 tonnes in July from 59,660 tonnes compared to a month earlier.

A total of 55,184 tonnes went to India in July, up from 48,227 tonnes in June. This was the highest monthly total sent to India since our records of this data began in 2012. Monthly exports to India have now grown in every month of 2019. Just 11,813 tonnes was exported to India in January of this year.

The main reason the overall total of global exports fell in July was because tonnage to Turkey dropped significantly.

After a huge 46,039 tonnes was sent there from the UK in June, this dropped to 16,705 tonnes in July.

With Turkey taking more than 10,000 tonnes in each month this year, it should now be considered a major destination for OCC. This is especially interesting when not a single month occurred previously where more than 10,000 tonnes was sent there. Indeed, before 2017 it was a rare month when any tonnage went there.

After Turkey, the EU as a whole was the next largest destination, with 11,016 tonnes, a touch higher than June’s 10,950 tonnes.

At 6,019 tonnes, Netherlands was the main destination, although this could be transitional tonnage.

France took 2,055 tonnes and Germany 1,942 tonnes.

Exports to Indonesia increased in July to 10,716 tonnes up from 6,450 tonnes in June.

Taiwan’s 4,117 tonnes was also up from 1,884 tonnes in June.
