Russian sawmills gain market share in Egypt
27 mars 2018 A recent report from the analysis company Woodstat shows that Russian sawmills exported approximately 84,000 m³ of softwood lumber to Egypt in January (according to statistics from the Russian Customs).
Russian lumber export sets new record
20 maj 2016 Russian sawmills exported a total of 2.27 million cubic meters in March, an increase of 6% from last year. In the first quarter, exports increased by 3% to 5.33 million cubic meters. Russian lumber exports are now in a clear increasing trend, says Jenny Wessung, CEO Woodstat. The collapse of the ruble is of course a major contributing factor, but to this we can add falling domestic consumption and new sawmills in Siberia. We expect a continued increase in exports over the next few years. / Woodstat
