Random Lengths International Market Report

Bustling worldwide demand for Southern Pine and shifting trends in China set the tone for global trading of North American softwood lumber. Soaring domestic prices of Southern Pine #1 and #2 2x10, a strong seller in Pakistan and India in recent months, priced some offshore buyers out of the market. North American structural panel sales overseas faded amid constrained supplies and strong domestic prices. Buyers grew cautious about downside risk. Robust sales to the Caribbean continued amid a resurgence in demand after a short mid-May pause.
