Will the Malaysian furniture industry wither amidst the decreasing local supply of rubberwood timber? Despite declining supply of local rubberwood timber, the wooden furniture industry has been able to sustain its production and trade. This means that the wooden furniture industry does not wither even though there is local shortage of rubberwood timber supply. The wooden furniture industry has adapted to the situation of declining rubberwood supply in various ways. First, lesser rubberwood timber is used. The consumption of rubberwood logs by sawmills in Peninsular Malaysia in 2001 was 489,378 cubic meter. It has declined to 91,605 cubic meters in 2008. (Résumé d'auteur)
