Forest products industry

Jouko Parviainen

Forest products industries, here, include those industries involved with the processing of all types of forest products and secondary products - traditionally paper and related products, wood and wood products, and furniture. However, other industries are included, such as the wood chemical industry and the non-wood forest products industry. For the purposes of this portal, the term does not include industrial aspects of silvicultural practices such as harvesting, but begins with sawmilling. In many resources, especially those looking at financial and employment aspects, the term 'forest industry' is often used to include the whole forest-wood chain, e.g "average salaries in the forest industry increased ...."

In Europe, forest products industries represent 8% of the region's manufacturing industries, though this varies enormously from country to country, and the contribution from the different sectors (timber, pulp and paper, panels, furniture, etc.) also varies.

In this section, you will find resources describing the situation across Europe, but also specific country information in the form of overviews of the industry and also statistics relevant to the different sectors of the industry.
