Exporting tropical timber decking to Belgium
Despite the economic recession and some years of decreasing imports and consumption, the Belgian market for tropical timber decking recovered well in 2014, providing great opportunities for exporters in developing countries. Tropical timber decking is popular among Belgian consumers who appreciate its aesthetic and durability features. Certification is highly important in the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) sector, which is one of the most promising end markets for exporters in Belgium. Therefore, value addition through certifications, as well as focus on design and finishing, will be critical in order to access the Belgian market for tropical decking.
