Future Suppliers of Softwood Lumber to the US Market – Supply and Demand Outlook 2017-2030

A new study forecasts that softwood lumber consumption in the US will reach all-time highs by 2030. As a consequence, there are likely to be increased investments in production capacity in the US, changes in Canadian lumber trade flows, a rise in overseas supply, and upward pressure on sawlog prices. Detailed analyses of different demand and supply forecast scenarios can be found in the newly released comprehensive report: “Future Suppliers of Softwood Lumber to the US Market – Supply and Demand Outlook 2017-2030”.

The new multi-client study is published by ForestEdge LLC and Wood Resources International LLC. For more information about the study or to inquire about the purchasing of the 218-page report, please contact either Robert Hagler (robert@forestedge.com) or Hakan Ekstrom (hakan@woodprices.com)

It is expected that US softwood lumber supply sources will shift to meet future increase in US lumber demand. Factors influencing these shifts include changes in availability of timber supply, prices of sawlogs, competitiveness of lumber producers, exchange rates and developments in alternative markets for lumber producers in Canada and overseas.
