International trade in logs and timber worth $50 billion in 2013

International trade in logs and timber worth $50 billion in 2013 | International Trade | Scoop.it

The total value of global trade in logs and softwood timber is estimated to have reached more than $50 billion (£30.3 billion) in 2013 – the highest level since before the economic crash of 2008 – with prices for both commodities rising.

 

According to Wood Resources International (WRI), which calculated the total from data for January to October, the US “continues to be the major destination for internationally-traded lumber” but countries in Asia imported twice as much timber in 2013 compared to five years ago.

WRI said: “There has been an unprecedented increase in demand for softwood lumber in Asia the past few years, with the three major importing countries, Japan, China and South Korea, together importing more than twice as much lumber in 2013 as compared to five years ago.”

 

Softwood timber is “by far the most commonly traded wood product worldwide” and the biggest increases in overseas trade have been from Canada to China and from Nordic countries to Japan.

The Patterns of World Trade - Analyst Insight from Euromonitor International | International Trade | Scoop.it
The visual highlights the intricate web of global trade. While a part of the world’s trade in goods can be described as truly global, regional trade accounts for a very important share of overall global trade. Some 70% of the trade of European Union countries, for example, was within the European Free Trade Association area in 2013. Similarly, nearly 49% of North American trade was within NAFTA.
