This report examines the short-and medium-term economic and profitability outlook for Canada’s Wood Products Industry.

Document Highlights

  • U.S. Housing Market—In spite of a weak start to 2016, the resurgence in the U.S. housing market is expected to remain the key driver of improving demand for Canadian wood products.
  • Southbound Investment—Canadian wood product manufacturers continue to acquire U.S. sawmills. With the industry operating close to full capacity, outbound investment flows could hamper the industry’s ability to grow.
  • Wood Pellets—Increasing adoption of renewable energy sources, particularly in the EU, should continue to support demand for wood pellets. This bodes well for Canadian wood product manufacturers looking to maximize the value of their wood waste.
