Germany’s sawn pine lumber exports jumped in volume by about 29% in the first half. In value, the increase was slightly higher (33%) supported by a surge in export price: the average price of €172.72/cubic meter registered in H1/2013, moved up in H1/2014 to €178.10/cbm.

Especially, German sawn pine lumber shipments to China and Egypt expanded considerably. In Europe, deliveries to the Netherlands went up by 50% in volume, while those to Belgium increased by more than 90%. Exports to Poland and France decreased in volume, however, due to higher export prices, they've managed to rise in value.

Among the main destination countries of German sawn pine, the highest delivery price was to Japan (€214.79/cbm; H1/2013: €219.53/cbm) and Egypt (€211.33/cbm; H1/2013: €167.72/cbm). The cheapest pine was sold to Belgium (€151,65/cbm) and  Italy (€153.17/cbm).
