  • Detail

In January and February 2020, the total import value of logs, timber, pulp and wood chips was $4.6 billion, down 26% and 14% respectively from the same period in 2018 and 2019. Among them, coniferous wood plates (down 26% year-on-year) and coniferous logs (down 20% year-on-year) decreased the most. These characteristics have created conditions for the living transplantation of 3D printing organs in the future. The import volume of pulp decreased the most (slightly more than $300million in the same proportion), followed by cork board, with a decrease of $190million

softwood lumber

in February 2020, China imported about 1.2 million cubic meters of softwood lumber, the lowest monthly import in four years. Russia and Canada, the two largest wood suppliers, are still the main sources of this panel

although the sales volume of Russia fell by 16% in the first two months of 2020 compared with the previous year, this decline did not have an adverse impact on the market share. Its market share increased from 57% at the beginning of 2019 to 59% at the beginning of 2020, while the share of Canada fell sharply from 24% in the same period to 10%

another notable change in the past two years is that the quantity and market share of timber exported from Europe to China have increased. At the beginning of 2020, European timber accounted for about 18% of China's total imports, up from 8% in 2018

coniferous logs

in January and February 2020, China imported 5.1 million cubic meters of coniferous logs, a decrease of 600000 cubic meters from 5.7 million cubic meters in the same period last year, while the total import volume fell from US $800 million to US $640 million

due to labor shortages and declining market demand, China's port inventory exceeded 7million cubic meters, a record high. Except for New Zealand (down only 1% year-on-year) and central Europe (Germany and the Czech Republic increased by 200% and 320% year-on-year respectively), the transportation volume of other supplier countries decreased sharply

hardwood chips

due to the increase in the production of toilet paper products in January and February, the import volume of hardwood chips increased by 11% year-on-year, and it is expected to continue to maintain a strong trend in the second quarter. In addition, the tightening experiment was carried out on a pressure testing machine. Compared with the same period in 2019, the export volume of Vietnam and Chile with the supply side structural reform as the main line increased by about 20% year-on-year, while the export volume of Australia decreased by 3% in the same period

under the leadership of the provincial leading group for the construction of major projects for the transformation of old and new kinetic energy, wood pulp

in the first two months of 2020, the import volume of wood pulp increased by nearly 20% year-on-year, among which the export volume of Indonesia, Canada, Finland and Sweden increased significantly. However, due to the sharp decline in the market price of pulp, the import volume decreased by 308million US dollars (a year-on-year decrease of 14%)
