USA: decline in hardwood plywood imports from China

26.02.2020 − 

In the fourth quarter US hardwood plywood imports increased by 1% to 660,797m³. After imports in the first quarter, at 567,850m³, had slightly surpassed the level of the preceding year, the development recorded in previous quarters (Q2: -21% to 552,407m³, Q3: -6% to 681,048m³) reversed again.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) over the entire period of 2019 imports declined by 7% to 2.462m m³. As had been the case in previous years, this development was largely influenced by the 59% decline to 160,654m³ in deliveries from China.
