About the product
This publication provides ratios of raw material input to the output of wood-based forest products for 16 countries of the UNECE region. Analysts, policymakers, forest practitioners and forest-based manufacturers often have a need for this information when looking into the future of the forest sector via outlook studies, but also for a basic understanding of the drivers of efficiency, feasibility and economics of the sector. The publication includes explanations of the units of measure, the drivers of the ratios, as well as information on physical properties of wood-based forest products. Finally, where reported factors were unavailable, factors from other sources were given.
