As we frequently remind our subscribers, the future is uncertain and market conditions can change rapidly. Traders and forecasters alike were repeatedly reminded of this with the unprecedented boom-and-bust cycles with lumber and wood product prices over the last three years.
By using a price reporting agency (PRA), you can be prepared for all outcomes. With PRA you can:
- Ensure that you have the prices you can use that reflect supply and demand conditions
- Provide a reference and benchmark for all transactions
- Give confidence to contract counterparties that the prices used are impartial
- Improve efficiency when renegotiating contracts
- Deliver instant and accessible data through an automated platform
- Get access to supply and demand outlooks for lumber, timber and wood products and more to forecast costs
- Receive breaking news coverage, contextualized within rich industry statistics and datasets
Abating pandemic-related supply shocks and falling demand means a much lower equilibrium price for lumber compared with the last three years.
Fastmarkets forest products give market participants and investors the transparency and clarity to make critical and strategic business decisions.
