Italy exporters among the German and Austrian sawmills are unsure of the further development of the Italian softwood lumber market. In particular the market for construction timber has deteriorated significantly in recent weeks. With the demand for wood packaging assortments, most companies are happy. Industry looks with interest at the sawmills in Carinthia and Styria, if the companies will stand firm in softwood lumber prices or if they will pass on price advantages caused by pine beetle wood to their Italian customers.

Demand for construction timber is strongly regressing. Price increases of the summer, Italians had to accept in view of the German and Austrian lumber prices, are about to fall off. Payment targets are beginning to re-extend.
