China's "plate city" Linyi plate export key potential market

For a long time, Linyi in Shandong, Pizhou in Jiangsu, Jiashan in Zhejiang and Wen'an in Hebei have been called the four major wood-based panel production bases in China.
As the traditional industry of Linyi, the plate industry is also the dominant industry and leading industry of Linyi. Its production, consumption and import and export volume rank first in the world. The export value of wood-based panels accounts for more than 40% of the total export value of the country, ranking first in the country. Therefore, Linyi is also the only city that has won the honor of "China's plate city".

At present, the forest land area of Linyi City has reached 6.55 million mu, the forest coverage rate has risen to 30.7%, and the annual forestry output value has exceeded 30
billion yuan, basically forming a rich forest resources and industrial advantage matching with the geographical advantage.

After more than 30 years of development, there are more than 18000 plate processing enterprises in Linyi city. The leading products have developed from general products
such as primary laminate and particleboard to medium and high-grade series products such as waterproof building formwork, high-grade furniture board, multi-layer plywood, high-quality veneer, laminated board, flame retardant board, scientific and technological wood, large-scale container board, etc. the products are exported to more than 20 countries and regions such as Europe, America, South Asia and Africa, With an annual export volume of more than 12 billion US dollars, it is the largest export commodity of Linyi.

At present, the exports of many enterprises are often from developed countries, but in fact, the markets of developed countries are relatively saturated, the industrial chain is relatively complete, and they can also produce and sell their own products. However, some developing countries have rapid development and relatively large demand.
Among many developing countries, Kenya and Pakistan have an increasing demand.

First of all, Kenya, as a developing country, has a growing demand for wood in recent years. However, the rising demand makes it difficult for Kenya to meet the minimum target of 10% forest coverage proposed by the United Nations. According to the data of the world bank, Kenya has a land area of 441300km2 and the current forest coverage rate is 7.8%.

According to the prediction of the Kenya forestry authority (KFS), By 2032, the demand for wood products will increase significantly, and the demand for construction wood will increase by 43.2%. However, the growth of the overall supply capacity of wood products is expected to be lower than the demand.
By 2032, the wood supply deficit will increase by 26.5%, and the wood supply gap is expected to be 13.064 million m2. According to the Kenya Forestry Bureau, the current timber supply capacity of Kenya is 31.4 million m2, while the demand is as high as 41.7 million m2.
In the Kenyan market, there is a large demand for medium density fiberboard, commercial plywood and laminated plywood, which are mainly used in the furniture manufacturing industry and also used for the decoration of offices and high-end houses. Therefore, this greatly increases the demand for imported boards in Kenya to meet the needs of the furniture industry and the building materials industry.

In addition, Pakistan, like Kenya, as a developing country, is in the stage of rapid development in all aspects. Among them, the activities of construction industry and building materials industry grow relatively fast, and it is the second largest important industry and market in Pakistan's economy after agriculture.
The Pakistani government recognizes this and wants to develop this industry by itself. However, due to the lack of the latest machines and necessary projects, Pakistan needs to import some relevant finished products, machines and tools to meet the huge local demand. Similarly, in the Pakistan market, plywood, medium density fiberboard, oriented particleboard and particleboard are the plates with high work demand in the building materials industry, mainly used for making cabinets and wardrobes. Moreover, few local companies can produce different products at the same time, so these plates often need to be imported from China and other countries.
