Learn The Truth About Wood Chips Price Industry

Two weeks ago, the leader of a wood chip processing company in Phu Tai Industrial Park (Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh) said that the price is at the highest level, purchasing 16,000-1.65 million VND / ton of fresh acacia.

In addition, due to the conflict in Russia and Ukraine, the fuel demand of countries in the world is severely lacking, and the need for purchasing wood pellets for processing has increased sharply. This makes wood suppliers from the EU forced to retain a part of raw wood to make up for the volume of timber imported from Russia, thereby announcing an increase in export prices of natural wood to partners (+20~ 60% over the same period). As a result, Vietnam’s timber imports from other markets also face many difficulties.

Domestic producers have been forced to look to alternative domestic wood sources to minimize the impact of this price increase.

However, the capacity of domestic wood supply is still minimal. Because the proportion of planted forest wood used for furniture processing is still low, accounting for only 30-40% of the total amount of timber harvested, the rest is about 60-70%, mainly for producing wood chips and pellets. Therefore, businesses can only use domestic wood to replace some product parts.

The reason is that the price of woodchips increased sharply, causing the exploitation and purchasing of acacia to produce wood chips massively. Difficulties in accessing input wood supply make it impossible for many businesses to continue receiving new orders, and even some have to suspend production. In addition, high inflation in the US negatively impacts the demand for imported wood products, as non-essential spending is tightened compared to before.

On the other hand, the cost of wood chips has been promoted. However, compared to the cost of different types of wood, the price of wood chips is still at a reasonable level.

Classification of wood chips

  • Moisture-resistant wood core will be added with melamine, gypsum, or cement moisture-proof agents to increase adhesion and strength and limit swelling. Usually blue.
