Global - Strong markets around the world push up prices in first quarter to stratospheric levels boosting sawmill profits in North America and Europe
• The strong lumber markets in North America and Europe resulted in higher sawlog prices in most parts of the world in early 2021.
• The Global Sawlog Price Index (GSPI) has increased for three consecutive quarters to almost $79/m3 in the 1Q/21. This is substantially higher than its 25-year average.
• The European Sawlog Price Index (ESPI) rose to €81.44/m3 in 1Q/21, up 9% from the previous quarter. The most significant price increases from late 2020 occurred in the Baltic States and Eastern Europe.

• Lumber prices in the US have taken off to levels where they have never been before. In April of 2021, average prices reached record levels that were more than three times as high as 12 months earlier.
• The sawmill industry in both Finland and Sweden has increasingly shipped lumber outside Europe over the past decade. In Finland, this share was up from about 50% in 2010 to reach almost 60% in 2020.
• Softwood lumber imports to Japan have been in steady decline for the past five years, and this trend continued in early 2021 when volumes were 14% lower y-o-y.
• With lumber prices reaching the stratosphere and costs for sawlogs moving up only marginally, profits for sawmills in North America and Europe were at record highs in the 1Q/21
