The China wood products market is becoming complex! A slowdown is one thing, but there are some new and evolving fibre supply dynamics that will be played out in China over the next few years and beyond that should be game changers. We are predicting what happens when China’s demand starts to normalize and/or accelerate again as well as incorporating some significant supply-side dynamics and changes. All of these factors could lead to some very favourable prices for softwood log and lumber exporters, and especially hardwood woodchips.
To provide the wood products trade with a better read and perspective on what’s next for China’s forests, market and import requirements, Russ Taylor Global (Canada) and Margules Groome (New Zealand & Australia) have teamed up to present a strategic analysis and outlook of China’s plantations, and log and lumber supply/demand/prices in: China Forest Log & Lumber Outlook: Supply, Demand & Prices to 2030/2035. We also have some expert contributors to our report.
