  • Paper production declining, sawnwood on the rise

    Etiketter: Wood
    The continuing poor economic situation in Europe will affect Finnish forest industry this year as well. However, the industry’s profitability will see an improvement from last year. Paper production in Finland will decline due to weak economic growth and permanently decreasing paper consumption in main markets. Sawnwood production will rise as a result of increasing export volumes outside Europe. Next year, Finnish forest industry’s production will partly pick up. Paper machine closures will continue in different parts of Europe. / PTT
