Bamboo Market Price

Bamboo Market Price

What is the market price for bamboo, and for how much (USD) raw bamboo can be sold for. Can you direct me to where I might find the current market prices for raw bamboo and how this process occurs. I'd like to project potential profits before I decide to invest in a bamboo farm.

 

Stephane from Guadua Bamboo replied:

Market prices for raw bamboo depend strongly from country to country, species, diameter, standing price, harvested price, etc.

To give you an example at a commercial plantation in Costa Rica, Guadua angustifolia is sold at a farm gate price between 0.87$ - 1.34$ green per lineal meter (depending the diameter). In other South American countries buyers might pay between 1 - 2$ per standing culm.
