Thailand’s rubberwood industry: a new rising star
Author: Pharadon Heemmuden
- The market outlook for rubberwood exports is bright thanks to an increasing supply, as well as demand, especially from China, where the furniture industry is growing. Thai rubberwood is competitive in the global market due to its price and quality.
- EIC sees increased potential for the local production of rubberwood furniture and other wooden products, which will help boost Thailand’s export value. Both the public and private sectors should join hands in research and development of new rubberwood products with an eye especially on design and branding.
