South China Imports of U.S. Wood and Wood Products Climbs to a New High
the last 8 years, South China's imports of U.S.
wood and wood products have been on a continuing rise in general, and last year
a new annual import record of 700 million USD was written, accounting for about
30% of China's total imports
from the U.S.
Southern China includes Guangdong, Fujian, Guangxi, Hainan, and Hunan provinces.
Industry is a Crucial Contributor to South China
strong demand of South China for U.S.
wood and wood products mainly stems from its prosperous furniture industry and Guangdong Province
is especially the biggest furniture manufacturer and exporter not only in South China, but in the whole nation. For 17 years in a
has taken the lead in annual sales of furniture among all provinces. And
plays a pivotal role in the domestic distribution of imported wood.
to Increase Imports of Wood and Wood Product in the Future
a very long time, high-end furniture made of imported wood has mainly catered
to the need of oversea consumers. However, with the expansion of middle class,
these high-end furniture begins to gain wider popularity in the domestic
market. What's more, with the abandonment of one-child policy, China
is expected to see an noticeable population growth, and hence an increase in
demand for goods and services. In addition, according to a research jointly
conducted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Beijing Jiaotong
urbanization rate is going to hit 63% by 2020, and by 2018 China's urban population will
exceed 800 million.
Supports the Import of Wood and Wood Products
the increasing need for wood is inevitable, the domestic supply of wood
continues to fall short due to the government's blanket ban on commercial
logging of native forests. To encourage more oversea wood and wood product
exporters to enter the vast market of South China, the Agricultural Trade
Office (ATO) in Guangzhou
is now actively staging and supporting events that promote the imports of wood
and wood products.
among all events, trade shows are the most effective to help oversea wood
exporters to meet Chinese buyers. If you also want to penetrate into South China's wood market, please don't miss the 6th
