New publication on Wood Products Market Modelling

New

Under the title "Impacts of changing coniferous and non-coniferous wood supply on forest product markets: a German scenario case study", study results on possible market effects due to changing coniferous and non-coniferous industrial roundwood supply were published.

The analysis focused on a limitation of domestic coniferous roundwood availability and possible impact this development could have on the wood-based industry in Germany.
For this purpose, the study introduced a modified version of the Global Forest Products Model (GFPM). In contrast to the original model, this version differentiated between coniferous and non-coniferous industrial roundwood and sawnwood. Other things being equal, our simulation indicated that a limitation of the domestic coniferous industrial roundwood potential could lower the production output in the wood-working sector.
