In July, 2022, plywood imported from Russia will be “irreplaceable”
Recently, the United States has suspended normal trade relations with Russia and immediately raised the tariff on Russian birch plywood to 50% in many cases. As the United States imported 567million square meters of hardwood plywood from Russia last year, this large amount of plywood will be difficult to replace.
Republicans in Congress proposed a ban on Russian timber imports and a sustainable increase in domestic production, but unfortunately, seemingly groundless concerns about logging may prevent this legislation from moving forward and filling Russia’s supply gap.
According to the data of wood resources, Russia supplies about 10% of hardwood plywood used in the United States, of which the vast majority (97%) are birch plywood products. This figure is misleading because other leading hardwood plywood suppliers Vietnam and Indonesia ship large quantities of Russian birch by themselves.
In order to return to normal, the White House said at the time that it needed to prove that Russia and Belarus had ended their invasion and occupation of Ukraine and did not pose a threat to NATO.如无特殊说明，文章均为本站原创，转载请注明出处。If there are no special instructions, the articles are original, if you want to use or reproduce, please indicate the original source www.plywoodinspection.com,If you find that our articles infringe on your copyrights and interests, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in time and we will delete it at the first time.
