Clusterstatistics of Forestry and Timber

Based on official statistics on turnover, the number of enterprises and employment we investigate the economy of forestry and wood industry. The main objective of our research is the quantification of the added value in forest and wood industry including their structural development.

In 2016 the turnover of goods and services of the entire Cluster of Forest and Timber reached 182.4 Billion Euros. The gross value added generated by all industrial sectors accounts more than 57.6 Billion Euros. 1.08 Million employees were counted in 122,991 enterprises belonging to the cluster of forest and timber.
