(via COMTEX News Network)--

BEIJING, Jun 15, 2011-- Today, announced its research report highlighting Ecoblu Products, Inc. (OTCBB: ECOB) and Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (NYSE: LPX). Full report download is available at

Demand for forest products is highly dependent on the construction industry, especially the home construction and remodeling segment. Forest products that are typically used in construction include lumber, plywood, oriented strand board (OSB) and engineered lumber. New home construction remains well below prior peaks, and although there are some indications that the market is improving, significant recovery does not seem likely in the coming months. However, Margins in the industry are likely to widen, as conditions are expected to improve gradually in 2011 due to modestly higher volumes and prices. Standard & Poor's forecast is for a 4.6% increase in housing starts in 2011 followed by a stronger 60% gain in 2012.
