While the upward trend so far sustained for German producer prices for commercial wood products is still intact compared with the previous year, this no longer applies compared to the previous month. From September to October, the vast majority of productshave yielded or stagnated. Only five out of 26 values ​​have risen.

In the area of ​​softwood timbers, only narrow boards recorded a minimal increase of 0.09% compared to September. OSB boards and wooden windows and doors also grew slightly. Plywood packaging was a little bit stronger, and pellets and similar products are the front runners.

The sharpest decline was seen from September to October for melamine-coated chipboard, followed by raw chipboards.

The year-on-year comparison makes it clear that the possibly beginning downward trend will take place from a relatively high level. All values ​​except laminate floors are more or less clearly in the plus. The front runners are OSB boards and wooden pallets, followed by raw chipboard and narrow boards.
