The UNECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2011-2012 provides general and statistical information on forest products markets in 2011 and early 2012 in the UN Economic Commission for Europe region (Europe, North America and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia)
The Review begins with an overview chapter, followed by a description of the economic situation and housing-driven demand for forest products in the region. It then presents the policy implications of market developments in the region.
Market developments in five standard sectors, based on annual country-supplied statistics, are described for wood raw materials, sawn softwood, sawn hardwood, wood-based panels and paper and paperboard.
Regular chapters discuss markets for wood energy, certified forest products, carbon and value-added wood products. There is also a special chapter with a brief review of innovative wood products.  In each chapter production, trade and consumption are analysed and relevant development on specific markets and policies are included.
Tables included with the text present summary statistical information. Additional statistical tables are available below.
