Lumber prices and exports to rise in Finland

16.04.2013 − 

The spring forecast by the Pellervo Economic Research Institute (PTT) in Finland predicts rising softwood lumber exports and higher selling prices for 2013. Overall, the Finnish sawmilling industry’s profitability is expected to be better as well. According to PTT, sawmills are currently profiting from an adequate supply of logs and comparatively good sales opportunities on a variety of sales markets outside Europe. The strength of the Swedish krona is also enabling Finnish works to remain more competitive than softwood lumber producers in Sweden where exports are concerned. PTT is expecting Finland’s output of softwood lumber and its exports to rise by 3-5% this year.
