FIRST LOOK ON PLYWOOD

Report Number LN 080

U.S. plywood sales rebounded sharply between 2011 and 2014 along with the sharp upturn in new home construction.  Sales have been able to exceed pre-recession levels despite new home construction still some 50.0% below housing boom levels.  In recent years, sales gains were strongest for softwood plywood products.  Relatively sharp price increases contributed to this trend.  Import shipments also experienced strong increases in the softwood sector.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Plywood.  This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, end-use market purchases, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment.  Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.

The contents below shows the significant data and information included in this Catalina First Look.  Look it over, place your order at our website, call or email, and receive your Catalina First Look promptly.  You will find it a valuable planning tool.
