Medium and Long-term Outlook for the Tropical Timber Market



Since the 1997 Asian currency crisis, economic conditions and currencies have stabilised, exports are growing and confidence has returned to the tropical timber trade. This study for ITTO was to provide a reassessment of the outlook for the tropical timber market in relation to the factors affecting global supply and demand for tropical timber and wood products. Extensive market research in producer and consumer countries was undertaken, followed by preparation of forecasts of supply and demand under various assumptions, using existing and redefined economic models as appropriate.
