International trade friction has intensified, barriers have increased and increased, and export products have been hindered. China’s wood-based panel products are mainly exported to developed countries such as the United States, Japan, the European Union, the United Kingdom and South Korea, accounting for 65% of the total export volume. With the rising trend of international trade protectionism, China’s wood-based panel products are subjected to anti-dumping investigations, tariff barriers and other pressures. Countries continue to set more and more restrictions on China’s wood-based panel and its downstream products export through green barriers and technical barriers, such as the Les Act, CARB certification, FSC forest certification, etc., which has caused a huge impact on China’s wood-based panel export. In particular, Sino-US trade friction has a great impact on China’s plywood and its products.
