January Supply Chain Update


Happy New Year!

We begin 2022 with lumber and panel markets like those we experienced in the 2nd quarter of 2021. Lumber increased 40% in December alone. Futures prices are up marginally from these levels at year-end. Note that price levels are tracking about 20% higher than this same point last year. 

As we shared in our mid-month December update, November flooding in British Columbia was the primary impetus that sent the lumber market climbing. An environmental policy restricting harvesting in BC and new US tariffs are also in play. Steady to strong demand is frankly the key variable. As prices began to spike, dealers and their builders seeking to protect projects were making purchase commitments. 

OSB pricing was increasing at a slower pace until December. In December alone, OSB prices have increased 30%. Panel availability entering 2022 is tight, for both OSB and Plywood.

Additionally, prices for many other building materials are increasing in the new year. Marvin and Andersen, for example, are each increasing prices 7-10% as we begin 2022. Therma-Tru announced price increase for February in excess of 20%. See below for a detailed update of price increases/lead times by product line. 

So, we begin 2022 with strong demand for new homes and remodeling, a supply chain that is presently positioned to support most, but not all this demand, plus a dramatic spike in new Covid cases. I came across a Forbes article, which provides “micro-housing market forecasts” for 2022, authored by many economists and industry professionals. Click HERE to view.

A few observations I pulled from this article follow:

  • New homes sales are expected to increase 5-8% over 2021.
  • Mortgage rates are expected to increase modestly throughout 2022 to reach 3.6% by year-end.
  • With wealth gains for homeowners due to rising home values, the remodeling sector will realize strong growth in 2022 as homeowners seek to add space, improve energy efficiency, and increase resiliency of an aging existing housing stock.
  • Supply chain issues and labor shortages will continue to limit overall growth.
  • Demographic factors, like hybrid work from home/office and the way millennials seek to buy, will influence project design and how we need to adapt our sales models.
  • Price growth is referenced infrequently. Pricing is not anticipated to grow as it did in 2021. It will be interesting to see how inflation influences this. 

As I believe we concluded in several of our prior monthly updates, we do not have any clarity on when the price volatility and supply chain issues will lesson, but we’ve learned to work together to adapt to this new normal. Please remain in touch with our sales professionals regarding your projects. We update them weekly on market changes. 

Thanks for your partnership,

Regards, Bob Wood, President
