India’s long-term growth is based on a growing and young population that is boosting economic activity and creating a large, urban middle class. A shift toward more modern home furnishings and interior fit-outs is driving steady growth in the demand for wood.
With a declining supply of traditional hardwoods, Indian manufacturers are looking for alternate wood supply sources. India’s consumption of wood products is on the rise, particularly in value-added applications. The rapid opening of a market for softwood products in India presents a unique opportunity to position BC as a reliable supplier of fibre from sustainable sources.
