An in-depth report on the global forestry industry - 2020
In this detailed report, Gresham House looks at the drivers behind global timber consumption, which we believe will result in increasing timber prices and therefore also forestry asset values. Over the past 20 years, global timber consumption has increased by 1.1% per annum. Over the next 30 years, Gresham House expects timber consumption to rise by 3.1% per annum.
🏢 Urbanisation 🏭 Decarbonisation 🏘️ Increased housebuilding
Timber will play a critical part in this transformation.
The dual effect of urbanisation and decarbonisation will be more new homes and cleaner low carbon intensity buildings being built from timber. Wood will increasingly replace high carbon intensive steel and concrete.
Forestry ownership and returns continue to be underpinned by the biological growth of the trees. Forests provide protection from inflation and portfolio diversification, with minimal correlation to other asset classes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, forest values have continued to rise, due to assets being valued on a long term basis.
In times of unprecedented volatility, the defensive nature of forestry ownership is particularly pertinent.
Past performance is not an indicator of future performance.
