The competition of the Swedish forest raw material

Much suggests that the demand for raw materials from the Swedish forest will increase in the future, both nationally and internationally.

In this project, which lasted from 2019 to 2021, a cross-sectoral analysis was performed regarding how the demand for the Swedish forest resource may develop and what conditions are needed to meet the demand.

Raw materials from the forest play a key role in order for Sweden to become a carbon-neutral society. Raw material can be used, among other things, for the production of pulp, paper, sawn wood products, biofuels, and various industrial input raw materials. More industries also view bio-raw materials as an important substitute for being able to phase out fossil raw materials and fuels.
