The Sino-US trade war has not exerted much influence on the supply of American timber in the Chinese market for the time being.
In the short run, the Sino-US trade war will not have much impact on the overall timber market supply in China. According to the survey, China’s domestic stock of American timber is relatively sufficient, so as for the second half of the market, the supply will not be too shocked. However, due to policy uncertainties, the surge in orders in the past peak season is not expected to occur this year.
In addition, because American timber accounts for a small proportion in China and there are plenty of alternative timber, even if the supply is affected, it will not affect the overall timber market.
