Webinar explores wood pellet market

November 8, 2016
By Argus

Nov. 8, 2016 - Join Argus for a look at the evolving wood pellet market with a focus on the perspective of North American producers and a look ahead at power projects in the pipeline.

The wood pellet market has been dominated by heavy oversupply in recent months, pressuring spot wood pellet prices and in particular the cif ARA dollar-denominated index. The fall in prices has all but blocked North American producers from selling into the European industrial spot market, instead any emerging demand has been fulfilled by cheaper European supply.

Argus takes a look at what is coming up in the pipeline and where North American producers, as well as other producers, can find new selling opportunities.

Key discussion points:

  • What has caused the steady fall in the cif ARA wood pellet spot index and why has that limited spot selling from North America?
  • When can the market expect the re-emergence of spot trade from North American producers?
  • Where should North American producers be looking for the next big demand projects?
