South Africa and the rest of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region have been importing substantial volumes of wood and wood products from the U.S. and the rest of the world. The U.S. is one of the top 10 wood and wood products exporters to South Africa in terms of value. Wood, which falls under the category of wood sawn or chipped lengthwise, sliced or peeled, whether or not planed, sanded or end-jointed, of a thickness of more than 6mm, increased by 17 million m3 between 2018 and 2019.
There was a dramatic increase in the wood and wood products imported by South Africa from the U.S. and, if the status quo of the forestry industry in South Africa remains, demand for imported wood and its products will continue to grow over the next 5-10 years.
