Abstract:

Korea is now the fourth largest export market for U.S. wood products, ranking behind Japan, Canada and China. Unfortunately, the general lack of information on the Korean wood products market has hindered the ability of western producers to take full advantage of that market. Data are presented summarizing trends in Korea's domestic softwood production and imports, product distribution, and softwood use in construction and industrial market applications. Specific market opportunities, including the promotion of western style construction techniques, and the potential for substituting western softwood species for tropical hardwoods and other softwood species within the Korean wood products industry are discussed. West J. App. For. 2:17-20, Jan. 1987.
