Market and attribute trends for appearance wood productsCompleted

Project leaders: Fell, David


While interviewing for the value added roadmap it became clear that small to medium sized businesses have very little resources for monitor upcoming trends in their sectors.  Many owners and managers expressed their desire for a periodic summary of key market, design, and technical trends that effect Canadian producers.  It is proposed that an annual publication of key trends be circulated to value added sectors.

This publication will contain sections on markets, competition, design trends, standards, materials, management, and manufacturing.  The publication will be an effort of Forintek scientists, industry advisors, and the markets group.  It will be a compilation of information gathered in the field and information from the many periodicals received by the Forintek library.  While this effort appears to be extension in nature there will be a high degree of literature review and analysis to identify key trends.

Start date: 2007-04-02 End date: 2008-03-31
