ITTO- Biennial Review and Assessment of the World Timber Situation 2019–2020

As per the latest release of ITTO’s review of the biennial world tropical timber production and trade 2019-20, tropical log production declined by 3% in 2020 largely to the COVID-19 pandemic, and imports declined by 11%. The report provides data on the production and trade of primary and secondary processed wood products in 73 countries worldwide. The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on tropical wood product production, consumption and trade varied in 2020, depending on the severity of the pandemic in individual countries and the steps taken to control and mitigate the spread of the virus. 


Demand in major tropical wood product markets also differed among countries. This edition of the Biennial Review features a summary of India timber supply and demand for the period 2010–2020, with forecasting up to 2030. The Biennial Review includes world totals for the trade of tropical timber and an overview of trends in non-ITTO-member countries.
