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.

Foreword

The UNECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review 2014-2015 provides an early look at, and a comprehensive analysis of, forest products markets and policies in the UNECE region in 2014 and the first half of 2015. It focuses on the various sectors of the forest products industry, presenting data and analyses of markets and the policy and economic factors driving trends. This information is critical: many rural livelihoods in the UNECE region have a significant stake in the forest sector, and the products covered by the review offer a multitude of options for greener, low-carbon economies.
