THE U.S. MILLWORK INDUSTRY BECAME INCREASINGLY GLOBALIZED DURING 1992-96

The U.S. millwork industry acquired more of its raw materials from overseas and experienced greater import competition in recent years, reports the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in its publication Industry and Trade Summary: Millwork.

The ITC, an independent, nonpartisan, factfinding agency, recently released the report as part of an ongoing series of reports on thousands of products imported into and exported from the United States. The following are other highlights from the report.

The foregoing information is from the ITC report Industry and Trade Summary: Millwork (USITC Publication 3096, April 1998).

They analyze the basic factors affecting trends in consumption, production, and trade of the commodities, as well as factors bearing on the competitiveness of the U.S. industry in domestic and foreign markets.
