chap-7.PDF ECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2000-2001 __________________________________________________________ 1 Chapter 7 Sawn hardwood – consumption, supply and trade 1 Highlights • Consumption of sawn hardwood in the UNECE region continued to rise to an all-time record through 2000, driven by improved economic conditions, particularly in the United States. • Sawn hardwood production in the UNECE region increased by 4.1%. • Sawn hardwood production in the United States reached an all-time record level in 2000 but, based on early reports, may have fallen by up to 25% in the early part of 2001. • Trade in hardwoods was at record levels in 1999 and continued to accelerate during most of 2000 throughout the UNECE region. • Prices of logs and sawnwood produced in the region advanced, although much more so in North America where the domestic and export demand was exceptionally strong and only towards the end of 2000 showed any sign of easing. • European production of sawn hardwood in 2000 responded to increased demand and improved prices and swelled with the recovery of storm-blown timber at the beginning of the year and demand from Asia. • Eastern Europe emerged as a more significant supplier of sawn hardwoods greatly assisted by the continued strength of the dollar and weakness of the euro currency. • Globalization of hardwood markets continued to play an increasingly important role, well demonstrated by the influence of such countries as China in the global supply and demand equation. • Rationalization in the furniture industry within and outside the UNECE region is changing the supply and demand profile for sawn hardwood. • The first half of the 2001 market saw a sharp downturn in demand levels and prices in North America and Europe. 1 By Mr. (...) Michael Buckley for authoring this analysis of the sawn hardwood markets. Mr. Buckley is well placed to perform such an analysis in that he has considerable experience throughout Europe and the United States, both as a hardwood industry consultant and also as the former European Director of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC). (...) In 2000 Canadian sawn hardwood exports were 1.5 million m3, mainly based on United States-grown hardwoods.

9sawnhardwoodfin.PDF ECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review, 1999-2000 _________________________________________________________ 105 Chapter 9 Sawn Hardwood – Consumption, Supply and Trade Highlights • Consumption of sawn hardwood in the ECE region rose in 1999, by 2.2%, due to high demand for furniture and construction-related uses as well as other uses, such as packaging and pallets. • Trade was at record levels in North America and Europe in 1999 and in early 2000 trade continued to accelerate. • North America and Europe each produced roughly 1 million m3 more of sawn hardwoods in 1999. • The windstorms which felled millions of cubic metres of hardwoods at the end of 1999 in Europe resulted in higher than normal levels of production and trade in 2000. • Following the 1998 economic crisis in Russia, the CIS continued to have weak demand and production of sawn hardwood, although exports rose slightly. 9.1 Introduction Overall the sawn hardwood markets in the ECE region have risen with construction-related demands for high-value hardwoods, as well as the need for low-quality sawnwood for pallets, crating and other non-appearance uses. (...) However import volumes are roughly half of exports. With extensive hardwood forests and increasing sawmill capacity and productivity, the United States is a net exporter of sawn hardwoods. (...) Trade in hardwoods was stronger than forecast in Europe in mid 2000.

Michael Buckley for once again authoring this analysis of the sawn hardwood markets. Formerly European Director of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), Mr. (...) Beech was replaced by a wide range of imported sawn hardwood from many countries including some Russian hardwood in log form. (...) The main effect may have been the wider acceptance of the euro for trade within Europe, disadvantaging the United States hardwood trade vis-à-vis European grown hardwoods.

7FINCHAP.PDF Forest Products Annual Market Review, 1997-1998 ______________________________________________________ 53 CHAPTER 7 SAWN HARDWOOD SUPPLY, TRADE AND CONSUMPTION Highlights • Perhaps ending the long downward slide, European consumption of sawn hardwood rose slightly in 1997, due to increased imports. • United States sawn hardwood consumption continued to climb in 1997 due to record production levels. • United States sawn hardwood exports increased strongly in 1997 to both Europe and Asia. • European imports of primary tropical products has been falling, but it reversed the trend in 1997. • When secondary tropical forest products are added to the values of primary products, Europe and the United States become major importers. • Since 1997, the Asian crisis drove down prices of some primary tropical products, by as much as half, by mid 1998. • The Asian crisis was having a profound effect on the whole hardwood trade in 1998. 7.1 Consumption In the medium term, Europe's consumption of hardwoods has been falling, for reasons which are not yet fully clear. (...) Trade is on the rise of hardwood dimension, i.e. rough cut-to-size boards and panels for further processing; this offsets some sawnwood trade and may be one reason for the apparent decrease in hardwood consumption. (...) However some insight can be given into one country's trade in sawn hardwoods. Slovakia's exports of sawn hardwoods in 1997 fell by 64% to 38,000 m3, as more was converted into furniture for domestic and export markets1.
