During the first five months of 2011 imports of wooden furniture into Peru rose 55% to US$ 23 million thanks to the rapid expansion of the real estate sector and the greater willingness of households to purchase household furniture. Growth was recorded in imports and domestic sales of wooden furniture used in the kitchen (+130% growth), used in offices (67%) and used in the bedroom (46 %).

The main importer in Peru was Saga Falabella (approx. 25% of the total value of imports), followed by Sodimac (18.5%) and Ripley (7%). Analysts expect that in 2011 and subsequent years the wood furniture import business will deliver double-digit growth.

This, it is said, will be underpinned by demand for household and office furniture for new apartments and offices, a sector of the economy which still has much room for growth. In 2010 imports of wood furniture were US$ 52.3 million, 71% up on levels in 2009. The main origin of imports was Brazil (37%), followed by China (18%) and Colombia (10.0%).

First payment given for community forest conservation
For the first time in the history of Peru the government has provided direct financial support to indigenous communities to conserve their forests. The funds were provided to five native communities in the valley of the Apurimac and Ene rivers as part of the Program for National Forest Conservation.

To participate in the programme communities were required to delimit the extent of the forest preserve and present an investment plan. The goal for this years’ programme is to reach 300,000 hectares of preserved primary forest.

January to May export performance mixed
The Export Association of Peru (ADEX) has reported the latest wood product trade data showing that from January to May 2011 exports were valued at US$59.3 mil. FOB an 8% decline on the same period in 2010. The three main wood exports markets were China, Mexico and United States accounting for 83% of the wood sector exports.

There were reduced shipments recorded to China ( down 37%) and the Dominican Republic ( down 18%) while for Mexico and the United States shipments rose 21% and 12% respectively over the same period in 2010. Exports of semi-manufactured products from January to May 2011 accounted for 40% of the total value of exports for the month and the accumulated value of exports of these products was US$23.8 mil.

The main market for semi-manufactured products was the Chinese market which accounted for 64% of the trade. The value exports of sawnwood from January to May 2011 were US$ FOB 18.5 million while for the same period in 2010 the trade was worth US$23.1 mil. FOB. The main market for sawnwood from Peru is Mexico which accounted for 38% of the total sawnwood trade. Exports of veneer and Plywood in the period January to May 2011 totaled US$7.9 mil. FOB while for the same period in 2010 they were US$6.5 mil. FOB, an increase of 21%.

Mexico is the main market for veneer and plywood from Peru absorbing 80% of exports of these products. In recent months the United States market has shown more interest in veneer and plywood from Peru. The export of furniture and parts is small and export earnings were only US$3.1 mil. FOB in the first 5 months of the year but the level of trade has increased by 28% compared to the same period in 2010.
