    Key forecast figures for Finnish forest industry, 2018-2019
    Pellervo Economic Research’s (PTT) forecast for the forest sector shows good prospects for the forest industries this year and next. Pulp exports will grow significantly this year as the Äänekoski mill has reached full capacity. Paperboard exports are growing steadily, and even the export of paper, long in decline, is showing signs of recovery. By contrast, sawn goods exports will decline this year, owing to a marked decrease in demand from China. / PTT

  • Forest industry’s structural change continues

    Etiketter: The pulp and paper industry
    Forest industry investments will increase the export of pulp and paperboard this and next year. However, the average export prices will decline. The diminution of the production and export of paper in Finland will continue strong. High demand in China maintains a positive outlook for the export of sawn timber. Demand is growing also because of activation of the construction industry in Finland and in Europe. / PTT

  • PTT: Removals and roundwood trade at a" "high level"

    Etiketter: Forest research and education
    The rise in roundwood removals earlier this year calmed down by the beginning of summer and the outlook for this autumn will balance the year’s accrual, making them a little higher than last year. However, there are considerable differences between the development of different timber varieties and trading methods. Next year the good economic situation continues if the uncertainties regarding global economy do not change the favorable development of forest products’ demand. / PTT

  • 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
