In November, the producer price indices in lumber have made ​​a slight recovery. The indices for KVH and boards remain clearly below the previous year, some of them have also lost again from the previous month. Most clearly, the negative price trend affects KVH and particle boards from wood, a sign that price pressure is strong due to oversupply.

The significant increase in the price index for pellets and briquettes can not be explained by seasonal effects. Compared with the same month last year, prices in November this year are more than 6 percent higher. The price advantage of pellets over fuel oil is shrinking.
