Sawlog Price Indices provide vital information about sawlog buying and selling costs. Sawlog costs account for 65 – 70% of softwood lumber manufacturing, so access to sawlog pricing data reports by country, continent and global view is crucial to determine the competitiveness of regional sawmilling industries.
The WoodMarket Prices platform provides both a global price index and a European price index.
Global Sawlog Price Index (GSPI): A volume-weighted index first established in 1995. Delivers information about commonly used log species for manufacturing and construction and lumber grades for higher and lower quality wood.
European Sawlog Price Index (ESPI) A volume-weighted price index established in 1999. Delivers information regarding the average prices for the nine largest log-consuming countries in Europe.
Global Pulpwood Price Indices, established in 1988, are derived from wood fiber prices for the pulp industry in global regions. They account for 85 – 90% of the world’s wood-based pulp production capacity. Wood fiber prices and regional consumption data are calculated quarterly.
Pulpwood prices are the greatest factor in determining the competitiveness of pulp manufacturing plants and account for 45 – 72% of production, depending on grade, chemicals, energy and labor costs.
Global Softwood Fiber Index (SFPI): Countries in the Northern Hemisphere with natural conifer species.
Global Hardwood Fiber Index (HFPI): Wood fiber prices in non-conifer plantation forests, mainly Eucalyptus and Acadia.
