Lumber: United States

This report forecasts to 2025 US lumber demand and shipments in board feet. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: untreated softwood, pressure-treated lumber, hardwood, and engineered lumber.

Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: construction, and industrial and commercial.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2010 to 2020; shipments and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2010, 2015, and 2020.

Products excluded from the scope of this report include engineered wood products, such as particleboard, plywood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), high-density fiberboard (HDF), hardboard, and oriented strand board (OSB) (plywood and OSB are included when they are used as part of I-joists). These wood products differ from wood lumber in that engineered wood products consist of reformulated wood materials – sawdust, wood shavings, shells, and other materials – where lumber products are only made with solid wood lumber.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
