Random Lengths International Market Report

Suppliers of North American softwood lumber and panels to overseas markets reported moderate demand and sales activity with the summer months approaching. Some overseas buyers focused their attention on immediate needs, while evaluating the near-term impacts of countervailing duties on Canadian exports to the U.S. Demand from China was steady. Buyers in the Caribbean sought replenishment and purchased large shipments in some cases to maintain inventories during ramped-up construction activity. Importers in Mexico rebuffed offerings of Southern Pine plywood and turned to Brazilian suppliers for coverage.
