Fluctuating Prices of Raw Material

The prices of raw material (lumber/timber) fluctuate a lot depending upon various factors, including market demand, supply, disruptions in the supply chain, availability of the material, political reasons, and other factors. Lumber prices climbed to an all-time high of USD 1,686 per thousand board feet in May 2021, a rise of 406% since May 2020. Among the factors affecting lumber prices are a convergence of Canadian lumber tariffs, a shortage of labor in the industry, an increase in demand for home remodeling and construction caused by the pandemic, and hiccups in supply related to transportation. Additionally, the price of lumber fell by more than 40% in June 2021 and by more than 65% by September 2021. Changing raw material prices make it difficult for manufacturers to acquire raw materials, thus limiting the growth of the U.S. lumber wood fencing market.

Impact Of COVID-19

Because of the nationwide lockdown, labor shortage, and rise in raw materials prices, the construction industry saw a decline in the market. However, because of lockdown, people turned to DIY projects, due to which the United States lumber and wood fencing market slightly grew due to COVID-19.

Following the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, construction activities and workers were deemed necessary. While work progressed in most regions of the country, project delays were caused by various obstacles. Because of the economic slump and supply chain interruptions, the construction timelines and operations were jeopardized. Contractors were also affected because subcontractors failed to report to work on time. All of these reasons contributed to the construction sector's output in the United States falling in 2020.
