The UNECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2014-2015 provides general and statistical information on forest products markets and related policies in the UN Economic Commission for Europe region (Europe, North America and the Commonwealth of Independent States). The Review begins with an overview chapter, followed by analysis of government and industry policies and market-based implements affecting forest products markets. The third chapter is on institutional forestland ownership. Five chapters are based on annual country-supplied statistics, describing: wood raw materials, sawn softwood, sawn hardwood, wood-based panels, and paper, paperboard and woodpulp. Additional chapters discuss markets for wood energy, value-added wood products, and housing. In each chapter, production, trade and consumption are analysed and relevant material on specific markets is included. Tables and graphs provided throughout the text present summary information.



Components of wood products groups

The important breakdowns of the major groups of primary forest products are diagrammed below. In addition, many sub-items are further divided into softwood or hardwood. These are: all the roundwood products; sawnwood; veneer sheets; and plywood. Items that do not fit into listed aggregates are not shown. These are wood charcoal; wood chips and particles; wood residues; sawnwood; other pulp; and recovered paper. The sources for pictures used in these diagrams are databanks of Metsä Group (2012), Raunion Saha (2012), Stora Enso (2012) and UPM (2012).
