ECE/TIM/SP/33 The Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2012-2013 offers a comprehensive analysis of markets across the UNECE region, including North America, Europe, the Russian Federation and the Central Asian republics, as well as market influences from outside the UNECE region. It covers the range of products from the forest to the final end-user: from roundwood and primary processed products to value-added and innovative wood products. Statistic-based chapters of the Review analyse markets of wood raw materials, sawn softwood, sawn hardwood, wood-based panels, paper, paperboard and woodpulp. Other chapters analyse policies, innovative wood products, markets of wood energy, value-added wood products and housing. Underlying the analysis is a comprehensive collection of data. The Review highlights the role of sustainable forest products in the international markets, policies concerning forest and forest products are broadly discussed, as well as the main drivers and trends. It also analyses the general economic situation and the general uncertainty on forest products markets in the difficult economic environment.
