This long-range outlook derives from analysis of pulp and paper markets and pulpwood demands for wood panels. The analysis projects modest increases in pulpwood demand beyond 2010, with decelerating growth in paper and paperboard consumption; increased demand for pulpwood in wood panels; increased imports of pulp, paper, and paperboard; and little additional growth in paper recovery for recycling. Results point to expanded pulpwood markets, particularly for softwoods in the US South, but to limited expansion of pulpwood markets elsewhere in the United States.
