Analysis of international wood market trade


A new Article about "Analysis of international wood market trade with the structural gravity model"

(© Thünen-Institut)

This article analyses the impact of economic and socio-geographic factors on international wood market trade by using non-linear estimation methods. The calculations were applied for roundwood, sawnwood, wood based panels and for pulp and paper products.

Because of the structural gravity framework this approach is able to determine specific effects on the intensity of bilateral wood market trade.
