Japan’s assembled flooring imports down 18% in May

After the unexpected decline in Japan’s assembled flooring imports recorded in February this year coming after a period of a sustained upward trend, there was a rebound in March and April but May data shows that, once again the trend has reversed. Year-on-year, May 2017 assembled flooring imports were down 18% and month-on-month imports were down a massive 28% almost match the low recorded in August last year, as ITTO reported.

Shippers in China and Indonesia accounted for almost 80% of Japan’s May 2017 imports of assembled flooring with Thailand and Malaysia contributing another 8%.
