Knock on wood: Construction activity is expected to strengthen, supporting industry revenue
Logging in the US
Over the past five years, the Logging industry has been in recovery mode, as construction activity has been climbing upward from recessionary lows, driving industry revenue. Demand conditions for the industry are expected to continue improving through 2021, as recovery in the residential construction market is forecast to strengthen and home improvement spending rises. However, paper manufacturing is forecast to slow due to the continued trend toward electronic communication, reducing demand.
Logging companies buy and lease log-harvesting equipment and vehicles and use them to fell trees. The trees are then transported as sawlogs to sawmills and pulp mills. The industry excludes breeding, planting or growing trees; as a result, companies are classified under the Timber Services industry (IBISWorld industry report 11311). Companies that truck timber are categorized under Local Specialized Freight Trucking (IBISWorld industry report 48422).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
