A Brief Overview of China's Timber Market System
Both China's primary wood processing industry and wood consuming sectors have experienced rapid growth. Meanwhile, China's imports of forest products has been growing, driven by the combined forces of a strong demand for timber products by domestic industries (including construction, furniture and panel) together with limited domestic productive forest resources. The government's efforts in establishment of commercial timber resources by fast growing plantations aim to reduce the imports. However, the gap between domestic supply and demand will continue to be filled by imports in the near future.
