U.S. Exports1

The value of U.S. domestic exports of forest products declined by 5 percent between 2014 and 2015, from $39.5 billion to $37.5 billion. Much of this decline was accounted for by decreases in U.S. exports of printed matter, lumber, and logs and rough wood products (table FP.2). Digitalization is negatively affecting global demand for hard-copy newspapers, magazines, books, and other types of printed matter as consumers increasingly use personal computers and mobile devices to access and read text.2 Most of the decline in U.S. exports of lumber and logs and rough wood products was accounted for by decreases in U.S. exports of these products to China. During 2015, the economic slowdown in China led to reduced activity in its construction sector, causing a decline in the demand and prices for U.S. exports of lumber and logs and rough wood products to this market.3
