“We are not planning to purchase in large volumes as we think that the outlook will remain soft over the next few weeks. In addition, demand for our end products is not all that encouraging these days,” a converter reported. Another buyer in the packaging sector added, “We are in no rush to purchase as we believe that prices may see further decreases in the coming weeks.”
