Oct. 11, 2016 - A new white paper from FutureMetrics has estimates for tonnage demand and spot prices for industrial wood pellets.
The tonnage estimates are based on optimistic scenarios in which Japan, Korea, the US, and Canada develop significant demand for co-firing or full-firing of wood pellets in large utility pulverized coal power plants.
The price estimates are based on a model of industrial wood pellet price behavior.
As with all models that attempt to forecast the future, the model is dependent on past patterns to predict future outcomes. The model is also dependent on assumptions about future critical price influencing factors and the supply and demand relationships in the wood pellet markets.
