Rising commodity prices have also hit the wood market in such a way that players using this resource in their businesses say they are facing major problems. The price of wood has risen enormously since the pandemic broke out.
In terms of wood prices, 2021 was a volatile year. After steadily rising until the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021, timber prices have skyrocketed to an all-time high in the spring of last year. These increases were due to high demand and growing supply chain problems. The relief came in the summer, as the cost of wood gradually began to return to historical average levels. But then timber prices began to rise again.
Timber prices rose by more than 60 percent from early September to mid-October last year. One cause, some entrepreneurs say, is the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused foreign companies to raise prices, most likely to cover their lockdown losses.
The upward trend in raw material costs, which will continue, according to experts, is a major challenge for companies that use wood as a raw material.
Fortunately, digitalization has changed the face of our society, including the forest industry. More and more companies are joining the global digitalization trend, including those working with wood, and an application that measures wood can help them save money so that they can grow further.
