Market Synopsis

Softwood is typically a type of timber that comes from different species of deciduous trees like fir, cedar, pine, treated lumber and redwood. The product mostly comes in rectangular forms, such as posts, rails and planks.

Furthermore, softwood has versatile characteristics like chemical resistance, high strength and water-resistant properties. It is also cheaper and grows faster than hardwood, which makes it the obvious choice for most people who use wood products. All these factors have made softwood lumber one of the best options in many areas including construction and packaging industries as well as manufacturing sectors.

The rapid growth of construction and manufacturing industries will stimulate the demand for softwood lumber. Softwood lumber is used extensively within inner walls and roof structures within the construction industry. Additionally, it can be utilized in doors and fixtures, among other building components. Conversely, in the manufacturing sector, it is widely used to make furniture, particularly wood carving. These aspects increase the need for softwood; therefore, further contributing to swelling its market share during the projection period.
