Estonian exports of rough-sawn and planed softwood lumber to non-EU countries increased by 28% in the fourth quarter of 2017 vis à vis the comparative quarter of the preceding year to 67,325m³. According to preliminary information from Eurostat, at 35,724m³, almost half the total volume was delivered to customers in Australia which corresponds to an increase of 80%. Exports to EU countries, at 97,466m³, fell short of the preceding year’s volume by 21%. In the first quarter exports were 16% below the preceding year’s figure. In the second and third quarters exports decreased by 26% and 13% respectively.

With regard to the the entire period of 2017, exports declined by 15% to 579,226m³. Deliveries to EU countries declined by 29% to 348,580m³. This decline was only partially compensated by a 20% increase to 230,646m³ in deliveries to non-EU countries.
