Three months to go

October 2, 2020. – In three months we’ll have a new year on our hands. Before that we should have an agreed Brexit, undisputed presidential election in the USA, and hopefully some kind of grip on the Covid-19 pandemic. There are enough other concerns as well, but we cannot hide from these three topics.

Will the coming quarter impact the plywood business? Yes, it will. Brexit will directly touch all who trade with Britain. The Corona pandemic jams nearly everything, with just a few positive exceptions like private home renovations.

The US presidential election will certainly have an impact on global trade, but will it have a direct impact on plywood? It might. In early 2017, early in Trump’s presidency, companies received inquiries about large quantities of plywood. Something to do with a Mexican wall. We’ll see what the future has in store.
