Separating Particleboard And TFL

FEA has revised historical particleboard trade volumes for the US and Canada to separate value-added product, primarily thermally fused laminate (TFL), from raw particleboard totals. Until now, we have presented both raw and value-added product as particleboard trade volumes in our historical data and forecasts. Separating the two will improve our analysis of the particleboard market and allow us to examine the TFL market on its own.

We will present these revised numbers beginning with our January 2019 monthly and Q1 2019 quarterly forecasts.
