Canadian Softwood Lumber Fills Gap in UK market

Shortages of wood from mainland Europe are being caused by a combination of factors. Russia has shown a propensity to retain logs for domestic processing and consumption, a direction supported by the application of export tax on round timber; Scandinavian mills have been preoccupied with the consequences of reduced log supply from Russia, wind-damaged forests of their own and labour problems; while log availability in both regions has been reduced following difficult harvesting conditions experienced during the winter and spring of 2007. In addition, the acceptability of Russian material has been questioned by importers seeking assurances regarding the origins and legality of their purchases. Raw material supply difficulties have come at a time when the demand for timber from China , Russia , Europe and North Africa has increased.

Resulting imbalances between supply and demand have led to price increases in the UK . The combination of high demand and low availability resulted in fencing UK manufacturers having to pay 20-30% more for their timber supplies since the end of last year. Higher timber costs have also hit the pallet sector, with prices paid by manufacturers said to be 15%-20% higher for April 2007 than for late 2006. Scandinavian, Baltic and Russian carcassing prices have risen similarly, and are currently in the region of £155 per m3 for KD stock FOM.

The changed circumstances have increased UK buyers' interest in supplies from Canada and Germany , during a period when exchange rates have become more conducive to trade with Canada, and Canadian softwood suppliers have been looking at alternatives to the US market. Nearly 160,000m3 more softwood was imported to the UK during the first quarter of 2007 than in the first quarter of 2006, equivalent to a 9.6% increase, and 80% of this increase comprised higher volumes from Germany and Canada . German and Canadian share in the first quarter of 2006 was 3.5% and 0.8%, and in the first quarter of 2007 had risen to 7.8% and 3.4% respectively. In March 2007, 4% of UK softwood imports arrived from Canada , making Canada the UK 's 6th largest supplier.

The total volume of softwood lumber exported to the United Kingdom from Canada during the period January to March 2007 was 42,535 mfbm, compared to 9,806 mfbm for the first quarter of 2006. The biggest provincial exporter to the UK during the first quarter of 2007 was British Columbia with 18,515 mfbm, followed by Québec with 17,999 mfbm and Maritimes with 5,463 mfbm. It is interesting to note that the UK accounted for 60% of EU imports of Canadian softwood lumber during the year to March 2007, compared to only 27% in the year to March 2006, illustrating the disproportionate growth in demand placed by the UK over the last 12 months. Belgium retained its position as Canada 's second largest EU softwood lumber customer, in spite of importing only 6,869 mfbm during the first quarter of 2007 compared to 7,872 mfbm during the same period of 2006.

The UK market is currently well stocked with carcassing, supplies bolstered in recent months by imports from Canada . One agent reports that the UK market is currently full of Canadian C16/C24. The influx of material supplied by Canadian East Coast suppliers has resulted in some serious imbalances at quaysides, where volumes in some specifications have been in surplus and accumulated. As UK importers have tried to offload excess stocks, domestic re-sale prices have fallen sharply, improving the likelihood that import prices will stabilise at current levels in the coming months.

Some traders suggest that the availability of almost limitless supplies of carcassing from Germany threatens the sustainability of trade with Canada ; the consequent recommendation is that Canadian suppliers take the current opportunity to build strong relationships with UK importers where they can, and explore niche markets. Recent complaints about the quality of Canadian softwood imports by UK buyers have proved to be the result of outdated expectations concerning the appearance of structurally-graded material. Communications between sellers and buyers need to be improved, and suppliers will increasingly need to recognise the importance of offering materials that are certified in accordance with recognised sustainable forest management standards (i.e. CSA, FSC and SFI), verified by means of compatible chain-of-custody.

 
 
Japan
Lumber Market Update

Despite the dramatic depreciation of the yen in the first half of 2007, Japan’s economy remained on the path of solid growth. Japan’s GDP posted an annualized growth rate of 3.3% between January through March. The Nikkei exchange rallied to a 7 year high in late May surpassing the 18,000 benchmark, fueled by swelling profits from repatriated funds from exporters, the strengthening real estate sector and strong order files for manufacturers in heavy industry.

Buoyed by strengthening balance sheets, Japan’s corporations are expanding to acquire new hires and additional office space. The unemployment rate fell to 3.8% in May: the lowest level since 1998. The ratio of job offers to employment seekers improved marginally to 1.06 jobs for every job seeker. Property markets have seen dramatic gains in the commercial real estate and condominium sectors. Office space tightened to 2.71% in May, while office rents, surveyed from among Tokyo’s 5 leading commercial property firms, are rising at between 10 to 15% for this fiscal year. The condominium sector continues to enjoy robust growth with average condo values in the Tokyo suburbs up a full 30% over the past year.
      
Despite signs of growth, the Bank of Japan’s sustained low interest rate policy has led to a rapid depreciation in the yen over the first half of 2007. The yen is trading at a 4½ year low versus the US Dollar, an all time low versus the Euro and has lost 12% of its value versus the Canadian dollar in the first 6 months of this year. The slide is being prompted by both consumer and the “yen carry trade” institutional investors chasing more attractive returns globally. The yen’s dramatic slide has prompted US Lawmakers to advocate the BOJ to tighten it’s monetary policy.

Results in Japan’s housing sector were mixed. The seasonally adjusted forecast for housing starts for 2007 is on par to match last year’s results at 1.29 million starts. Wooden housing is maintaining it’s market share at 45% of all housing starts. However, housing starts in April fell 3.6% and 5.5% in May, pointing to slowing activity in this sector. There is considerable market speculation as to whether this is a temporary lull in housing activity or merely a pause in activity that builders required to review the newly revised Building Standard Law and 2x4 Building Code which came into effect in mid-May. As is witness by a 2 year high of Tokyo Lumber Terminal inventories at the end of May and given the recently diminishing housing starts, Canadian shippers appear to be faced with challenging conditions near term.

Wood Mileage Campaign in Japan Promotes Domestic Forest Products

Japan LCA Comparison

Recent trends in Japan’s Life Cycle Assessment have pointed to the development of protectionist interpretations of LCA data by means of “Wood Mileage” calculators designed to discriminate against overseas imports of lumber into Japan. The WoodMiles Forum, a locally based NGO supported by llocal industry, prefectural governments & Japan Housing & Forest Products Research Centre, is actively promoting the benefits of utilizing local forest products in view of reducing greenhouse gas emissions that result from shipping forest products to Japan from overseas.

To counteract this potentially damaging public relations campaign and in view of shifting the LCA debate onto a standpoint that emphasizes the benefits of WFC versus the alternatives, COFI Japan worked in concert with the Japan 2x4 Builders Association Environmental Committee to commission a study in 2007 that assessed CO2 emissions produced by 2x4 WFC versus steel frame and hybrid construction. The study also sought to determine CO2 emissions associated with importing SPF from the forests in BC to Japan.

The study was released in April 2007. By means of BEAT LCA software and based on an average 30 year lifespan of a house in Japan, data was collected from three 2x4 home builders, one hybrid home manufacturer and one steel frame home builder to compare CO2 emissions. The study’s LCA results, highlighted below, indicate that 2x4 wood frame construction result in over 30% less CO2 emissions when compared with steel frame and hybrid construction. Moreover, when looking at CO2 resulting from ocean transport of SPF from the BC Coast to Japan, the emissions accounted for only 1% of the total greenhouse gas emissions over the 30 year lifespan of an average Japanese 2x4 house.    

To further educate the Japanese market on the LCA benefits of WFC, COFI, Japan is organizing a speaking engagement by Wayne Trusty, President of Athena Sustainable Materials Institute on September 21st at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo.

Canadian Bluestain and Japanese JAS Industry Grading Mission


Canadian Bluestain and Japanese JAS
Industry Grading Mission - May 22 to May 28

COFI hosted another successful tour mission to British Columbia of eight Japanese 2x4 industry lumber experts.  The group visited Kamloops where they enjoyed sawmill and plywood plant tours and explanation of the province’s forestry practices.  The mission’s participants also had a first hand look at bluestained lumber and received information on NLGA grading rules while attending COFI's annual interior lumber grading championship, which took place on May 26th in Kamloops.  While in Vancouver the mission group toured construction sites in Port Moody (single family, duplex, townhouse and 3-4 storey wood frame structures), to understand how residential and non-residential structures are built incorporating the use of SPF blue-stained dimension lumber in Canada. 

The mission proved successful at furthering the understanding on forestry practices in British Columbia, the Mountain Pine Beetle outbreak, bluestain lumber use, lumber grading, and SPF use in residential and non-residential 2x4 structures. 
Fireproof 2x4 Structures Consume 19,500 m³ of SPF Dimension Lumber


Fireproof 2x4 Structures in Japan consume 19,500 m3 of SPF dimension lumber

Fire proof approvals in Japan for the month of June totaled 29, the largest number recorded in a single month this year. To date, since the Japan 2x4 Home Builders Association and Council of Forest Industries received the Japanese ministerial fire approval on April 27th 2004, five hundred and sixty nine 2x4 fireproof structures have been approved for construction in Japan.  The volume amount of structural wood material consumed in these structures is estimated to be 19,500 m³ (approximately 485 40’ containers) of SPF dimension lumber.  Of the 569 units approved, the majority of these fireproof 2x4 structures, 447 units (79%) have been 3-storey buildings and 61 units (12%) were reported to be non-residential and commercial structures.

WFC More Economical: Canada Wood Completes Cost Comparison

Detailed cost analysis proves WFC far more
cost efficient than concrete.

A major challenge to overcome in the Chinese Construction Market is the perception that Wood Frame structures are more expensive to build than concrete ones. Canada Wood has recently completed an illustrative cost-analysis which clearly and factually explains the cost differences for choosing wood over concrete to developers in China.

For this report, three selected sample model houses compare conditions to get the construction cost difference, including typical roof system construction costs. The report concluded that the total construction cost of a wood frame house in Shanghai without loft (Model A1) including the foundation cost is 122.09RMB/m² lower than that of a concrete house. The total construction costs of a house with loft (model A2 and model A3) including foundation cost are 114.49RMB/m² and 208.40RMB/m² higher than that of concrete houses separately.

Lumber Market Update


Imports of Canadian logs continue to rise in Korea and now represent 8.3% of total log imports.

Korean imports of logs for the first half of 2007 increased 36.3% to US $475,478,000 while Canadian log imports climbed 67.1% to US $39,637,000 for the same period of 2006. The sharp increase of Canadian log imports for the first six months of 2007 is due to the Russian log price hike and log shortage in Europe. As a result, the Canadian log market share in Korea has grown to 8.3% of total log imports.

Lumber imports for the first half of 2007 compared with the same period of 2006 rose 20.2% to US $145,784,000 while Canadian lumber imports increased 11.7% to US $21,545,000 accounting for 14.8% of total lumber imports. Industry sources estimate that Canadian lumber orders from the Korean industry has almost tripled during the 2nd quarter of 2007, but temporary mill shutdowns by a major Canadian lumber supplier and an extended rail strike hampered meeting the order.

Deputy Minister Konkin’s visit to South Korea includes tour of local wood industries and
WFC sites.

Doug Konkin, Deputy Minister of Forests of British Columbia visited Korea from April 4 to 7, 2007 in order to gain the comprehensive view of the Korea wood industry and wood construction market.

The deputy minister visited local wood industries and WFC sites - Younglim Timber, Taewon Lumber, Eagon Industrial in Incheon during the first day, and BHK construction site at Pangyo, NS Home building products distribution center and SK Apelbaum construction site at Dongbaek on their second day.

Through the visits arranged by Canada Wood Korea (CWK), they both expressed their support for local industry and advancing the use of wood in housing and landscape applications in Korea through the CWK activities. They also were very impressed with the CWK team’s work and accomplishments and promised their support on the resources they are directing towards Korea.

CW Assesses Acoustic Requirements for Multifamily Structures
 

Koreans like wood construction! However, there are concerns from Korean building officials as to whether or not wood construction can adequately meet stringent acoustical and fire codes in the Korean building codes. Hence, Canada Wood Korea hosted acoustic expert Dr. Trevor Nightingale of Natural Resources Canada from March 8-14, 2007, to investigate Korean requirements and indentify potential options for light-frame wood structures which could possibly meet Korean requirements.

As for the first phase of the NRC project, which was proposed in Year 2007-8, this visit was intended to extend the scope of the study to include low frequency impact noise from standardized impact sources used in Korea/Japan, namely the bang machine and ball. During Trevor’s visit to Korea, he visited KICT, KFRI, KWCA, Chon Nam University and Han Yang University and met with government officials and leading Korean experts.
