Film Faced Plywood Edge

Around 85% of China’s plywood is exported by manufacturers in provinces of Shandong, Jiangsu, Guangdong and Guangxi, but these manufacturers face fierce price competition and complaining average prices have only risen by around 10% in 5 years.

A major change in the price indicates the quality of the Chinese suppliers has been improved in the past years in the time plywood veneer pricing is dropping in mainland.
