No pick-up in shipments of sawn teak from Myanmar

Indian end-users of locally sawn Myanmar teak are still holding out against the major price increases being proposed by sawmillers. The news from Myanmar is that the authorities do not intend to change direction on the log export ban despite requests from buyers for a phased approach to the ban. The pace of shipments of teak sawnwood from mills in Myanmar to India has not picked up as expected so some popular sizes are in short supply in the Indian market. However, local analys ts expect this situation will be overcome as production in Myanmar increases.

Sawnwood (Ex-mill) Rs. per ft3

Export Grade F.E.Q.
