Finland's softwood sawn timber production in January-September 2017 increased by 5.9%, compared to the year ago period and totalled 8.9 million cubic metres, as the Finnish Forest Industries Federation said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

In recent years, China has become a significant export market especially for spruce sawn timber. In the 3Q 2017, softwood sawn timber production remained at the same level as in the corresponding period last year, that is, 2.6 million cubic metres.

Plywood production increased by 10.3% in January-September 2017 to 0.9 million cubic metres. In July-September 2017, plywood production totalled 0.3 million cubic metres, which is 16% more than in the year ago period. Plywood is primarily used in construction, vehicle flooring, and LNG tankers. Growth in the European new construction and renovation markets had a positive impact on plywood production.
