Competitive environment drivers

Competitive environment: drivers

1.Government policies to add value, taxes on primary products, investment incentives

2.Technological developments in the processing of plantation species and lesser-used species

3.Foreign direct investment

4.Wage and cost advantages

5.Falling tariffs under GATT/WTO agreements

6.Rapidly growing domestic/regional markets

7.Improved shipping services

8.Specific export & import promotion programs

Geneva, September 2002

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

19


Competitive environment challenges

Competitive environment: challenges

1.Growing out-sourcing of semi-finished products

2.Tightening certification and labelling requirements on furniture (e.g. the USA in the next 2-3 years)

3.Substitution pressure from new materials

(natural fibres and synthetics)

4.Higher potential supply for more diversified plantation wood products

5.Product standards and design

6.Consolidation of distribution

7. Mounting of non-tariff barriers on trade

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

On competition

On competition

  • 50+ US-furniture plants closed by mid-2001

  • high-end producers with customisation and rapid deliverywill survive

  • manufacturers transform into assembly, finishing lines or distributors/marketers

  • out-sourcing of semi-finished products and components from China, Asia-Pacific, Latin America

  • still capture most of the value-adding potential in design, distribution and marketing functions

Geneva, September 2002

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

21


On competitiveness

On competitiveness

  • from comparative advantage to competitive advantage

  • In Europe: flexible but efficient production with the highest technological quality, superior design, innovative market promotion, and swift distribution with minimal stock-keeping

  • In the tropics: moving from original equipment manufacturing (OEM) towards original design manufacturing (ODM) and ultimately to original brand manufacturing (OBM)

Geneva, September 2002

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

22


Market access

Market access

  • trade liberalization has reduced tariff escalation (= higher tariffs for value added products)

  • EU, Japan and USA apply no import tariffs on FPWP from GSP countries, for most other countries 2-6%

  • eliminate tariffs on wooden furniture completely by 2005

  • generally tropical producers retain higher tariffs to protect their industries

  • regional agreements reduce tariffs

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

23


On end use markets for vawps

On End-use markets for VAWPs:

  • Consumer market (DIY products, household furniture and BJC products)

  • Commercial and industrial enterprises (building and construction materials, intermediate and finished joinery products, contract furniture)

  • Institutional buyers (building and construction materials, office & public premises furniture)

Geneva, September 2002

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

24


On certification

On Certification

  • In 1st and 2nd segment, the role of intermediaries (sourcing agents, brokers, importers, wholesalers, retailers, etc.) is essential

  • complex consumer market involves large corporations, who manage supply chains (IKEA, Home Depot, B&Q) and a lot of medium and small-scale operators

  • on institutional side, many governments in Europe are developing their procurement policies (WTO rules breach?): largest volumes, less certified yet

Geneva, September 2002

UN-ECE TIMBER COMMITTEE: 2002 MARKET DISCUSSION

25


Market developments for value added wood products

Conclusions 1

  • International trade of VAWPs has liberalized, increasing export opportunities for DMECs.

  • Around 40% of all OECD imports originate from developing market economies and China.

  • Competition will force industrialized countries to transform their manufacturing industries and participate in the supply chains from cost-competitive regions like Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

Market developments for value added wood products

Conclusions 2

  • The contribution of VAWP to the forest sectors of tropical countries will continue to grow.

  • Tropical value-added processing (furniture in particular) tends to develop in phases: >>> standardized products >>> originally designed products >>> branded products.

  • Tightening tropical wood resources call for:

    • Processing of more plantation woods

    • Expanded (unconventional) trade flows of primary processed products
