Northern Europe Lumber markets 2016

Swedish lumber exports have remained almost unchanged in 2016 as compared to 2015 with total volumes likely to reach about 12.5 million mᶾ.

Although the total export volumes have not changed much, the destinations of exports have faced some changes. Export volumes to the key markets in the MENA region have decreased, while more lumber has been sold to Asian and European markets so far this year. Prices for lumber export in Sweden and Finland continue to track each other, with average prices for Swedish softwood lumber being a bit higher than prices for exports from Finland.
