Japan's Asahi Shimbun article "serious global timber shortage" said that the global timber shortage is becoming increasingly serious. Due to the United States housing demand and container shortage and other factors together, wood prices generally rise, so that the industry calls this phenomenon "wood crisis". Some believe that this will continue for a long time. In addition, worldwide, the shortage of freight containers and the difficulty of booking shipping vessels have also contributed to the increase in timber prices.
