Market: Furniture
Posted July 13, 2018
The sharp drop in the value of Japan’s imports of wooden doors in March was sustained into April. But year-on-year, April imports were some 4% up, as ITTO reported.

March imports were driven down by much lower shipments from China and a modest decline in shipments from the other main suppliers, the Philippines and Malaysia.

As in previous months China was the major supplier of wooden doors to the Japanese market. Imports from China accounted from 56% of total wooden door imports with a further 18% from the Philippines, 10% from Indonesia and 7% from Malaysia. These four shippers accounted for over 90% of Japan’s April wooden door imports.
