Global Demand For Brazilian Plantation Teak
Teak is a durable hardwood produced by the species Tectona grandis. It is rich in oil, giving it a superior ability to withstand the elements and making it ideal for constructing buildings, outdoor furniture, ooring and decking. World consumption of hardwoods, such as teak, amounted to 1,657 million m3 in 2012, an increase of 2.4 % from the global gure exhibited ve years previously. Natural teak forests grow in only four countries in the world: India, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand. Myanmar is the only country producing quality teak from natural forests as India, Laos and Thailand have logging and log export bans in place. In future it can be expected that the sustained production of teak logs from natural forests will be further limited due to increasing deforestation and competition for environmental services. Hence, the supply trend points to a continuing decline in the volume and quality of natural teak. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), conducted a Teak Resources and Market Assessment in 2011. Surveying 60 tropical countries shows that natural teak forests are declining worldwide and that the quality of natural grown teak wood is deteriorating. The survey also revealed that plantation teak forests are producing high quality timber.
Modern high-resolution satellite photography permits scientists to inventory the world’s rainforest resource, and to catalogue its destruction.The tropical hardwood trees growing naturally in the rain-forests may take decades to reach harvest size.In tropical plantations, the experience is much different. Plantation Teak, may be harvested much earlier and following quality care and maintenance programmes excellent quality timber can be produced.Planted teak is the only valuable hardwood that constitutes a globally emerging forest resource The high international demand for teak has broadened the traditional teak supply base from natural forests in Asia to include fast-grown, plantation logs from Latin America.The estimated market share of teak logs in total tropical round wood production is less than 2% but in terms of value it is much larger, since teak is part of the high-value hardwood market, and is a major component of the forest economies.India is one of the largest consumers of plantation teak. Whose demand has increased several fold during the past ve decades. Accordingly, the major teak trade ows worldwide are directed towards India, absorbing 70% of global teak exports including shipments of plantation logs and sawn timber from Brazil.
