North American Structural Panel Risk Study
A risk assessment of mill capacity, and an analysis of structural panel demand, supply and prices.
North American structural panel producers are facing a period of extreme uncertainty in light of the recent rulings on MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technology). Already facing an extended downturn in the housing markets and increased competition from lower cost products, many producers will now be forced to spend millions to meet these new requirements -- or close.
How many mills will eventually need to close and for how long? Will pressure from new, low-cost capacity scheduled to come online through 2010 result in more substitution of OSB for plywood and the closure of older, smaller-capacity plywood and OSB mills? RISI examines these issues and many others impacting softwood plywood and OSB producers in the North American Structural Panel Risk Study.
This study provides:
This study will identify structural panel mill operations (softwood plywood and OSB) at risk of closure through 2008 and 2009. Each mill will be systematically ranked using the following factors:
