  • Construction panel prices are often a good leading indicator of general dimension lumber price movement. For at least two decades plywood and OSB manufacturers have been able to prevent panel prices falling below cost-of-production. The same can decidedly not be said about dimension lumber prices. Now there are even fewer, and much more highly-efficient, panel mill operations in Canada and the US, meaning producers can successfully resist customer (wholesalers, reloads) counter-offers. Critical to producer efforts is discipline with capacity and inventories; any oversupply is recognized by customers who promptly slow buying in an effort to achieve lower prices.
