The war in Ukraine dealt an unprecedented blow to the global timber markets. Russia, one of the world's largest suppliers of wood products, having invaded Ukraine, found itself under sanctions that cut it off from the main markets for wood products: the European Union, the U.S., and Japan.
The new out-of-the-box report, the War in Ukraine: Impact on Global Wood Markets, provides a detailed picture of how global wood markets changed in January-April 2022 and what impact the war had on the Russian forest based industry.
Will the Russian forest based industry be able to survive the sanctions, what M&A deals can take place, which countries will take Russia's place in the global timber market, and will Russia ever be able to regain its position?
