Tight supply of Vietnamese plywood

The supply of Vietnamese eucalyptus plywood for crating is becoming tight says the Japan Lumber Reports (JLR).
 
In Vietnam, construction of large plywood mills by Chinese companies continues. These plants purchase large volumes of eucalyptus veneer so plants manufacturing for the Japanese market are finding it difficult to secure raw materials.
 
Prices for Vietnamese plywood have climbed as high as US$310 per cu.m C&F and further increases are anticipated. This price is too much for the market in Japan says the JLR.
