India To Become Next Long-term Growth Market For Forest Products

BOSTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- India's wood fiber deficit is forecast to more than double between 2011 and 2021, placing increased emphasis on imports, according to a study released today by RISI, the leading information provider for the global forest products industry. 2013 India's Forest Products Industry Outlook examines India's development as the world's next substantial wood fiber import market after China.

"Due to regulations in India, companies are not permitted to own land in any significant amount, and therefore can't develop their own company plantations. With limited opportunity for domestic growth, India's need for imported wood fiber is expected to be sustained for several decades. However, we do not expect India's growth trajectory to follow the same explosive patterns as China," said Robert Flynn, Director of International Timber at RISI.

2013 India's Forest Products Industry Outlook explores the similarities and differences between the economic development and forest industry evolution of India and China over the last five years. This study provides10-year historical data on India's forest products trade, and forecasts imports of logs, lumber and pulp and paper products through 2021.

2013 India's Forest Products Industry Outlook Includes:

  • Details on overseas sources of key forest products for India
  • Constraints on timber availability
  • Profile of plantation forestry development in India
  • Analysis of India's infrastructure limitations, and developments in ports, roads and energy production
  • 10-year historical data on imports of softwood and hardwood logs, softwood and hardwood lumber, wood panels, wood furniture, pulp, recovered fiber, printing & writing paper, newsprint, tissue, containerboard and boxboard
  • Comparison of India and China's forest resources, energy and demographic trends and trade in forest products
  • Profile and analysis of India's forest products industry and market trends, including major companies
  • Forecast of India's wood fiber deficit to 2021, including forecast of imports of logs (softwood, teak and other hardwood), lumber(softwood and hardwood), wood panels and pulp and paper
