Highlights from Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2000-2001

  • World trade of secondary processed wood products is expanding at a faster rate than trade in primary wood products.

  • United States, Germany, France, United Kingdom and Japan account for 60% of world imports of secondary processed wood products.

  • Changing import supply patterns to these markets differ by product and by country.

Highlights from Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2000-2001

  • Imports of secondary processed wood products from tropical producers are replacing primary product imports from these producers.

  • Comparative advantage in the manufacture of secondary processed wood products is likely to shift increasingly to regions with low production costs.

  • The value of world trade in wooden furniture ($29 billion) exceeds that of sawnwood ($25 billion) and wood-based panels ($16 billion).

Highlights from Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2000-2001

  • Engineered wood product markets are gaining market share in North America; for example, 33% of wood floor area is now built with wooden I-beams.

  • North American glulam production increased by 14% in 2000.

  • Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) production in North America declined by 6% in 2000.

Four drivers of international trade in secondary processed wood products

  • Exporters of primary products are adding value to their basic products to improve profitability and to avoid the strong cyclical movements associated with commodity products.

  • Shifts in manufacturing location reflecting regional differences in cost competitiveness.

Four drivers of international trade in secondary processed wood products

  • Technology transfer facilitates regional shifts in production.

  • International agreements reducing tariffs and other trade barriers are creating new international trading opportunities.

Glulam (glued, laminated

sawnwood beams)

  • World glulam production increased by 19% in 2000 to a record 3.1 million cubic metres.

  • Japanese imports of glulam increased 55% in 2000.

  • North American glulam production increased by 14% in 2000 because higher demand in N. America, Japan and Europe.

Wooden I-beams

UNECE TIMBER COMMITTEE

Fifty-ninth session

2-5 October 2001


Unece timber committee fifty ninth session 2 5 october 2001

Wooden I-beams

  • 33% of the wood floor area in United States and Canadian homes is built with I-beams that have substituted for solid sawn joists or beams.

  • North American I-beam production declined 3% in 2000

  • 1/3 of the decline can be attributed to fewer housing starts. 2/3 of the decline was due to a loss in market share to conventional sawnwood at lower prices in 2000

Unece timber committee fifty ninth session 2 5 october 2001

Laminated veneer lumber (LVL)

  • LVL production in North America declined 6% in 2000 to 1.4 million cubic meters.

  • 2000 production drop due to the decline in I-beam production (60% of LVL is used for flanges of I-beams).

  • 3% to 4% annual growth forecast by APA.
