Orissa International produced a report on the wood sector in Vietnam for a foreign industry association seeking to increase the sale of softwood logs. The study covered domestic log production, the log and lumber trade, and timber sourcing challenges in the country. It analyzed the wood processing industry, looking at sawmills, wood product manufacturers and the domestic and export markets. It also provided insights into the usage and perception of softwood in the market. The report was prepared from a combination of secondary and primary research in the form of interviews with log and lumber distributors, sawmills and furniture manufacturers. The interviewees were asked questions about their wood sourcing, key customer segments, interest in softwood and the impact of COVID-19 on the industry.
