  3. Consumption, production and trade of sawn softwood rose to record levels in North America and Europe in1999 and were even stronger in early 2000. Consumption of sawn softwood in the ECE region grew 4% in 1999, with growth of 6% in North America, 3% in Europe and a decrease of 18% in Russia. Strong economies in North America and Europe are driving demand for sawnwood for construction and other uses.

  4. Prices moved in opposite directions in 2000, falling to near-term lows in North America and firming in Europe. The United States increased imports by over 1 million m3, with much of the new increase coming from Europe, as well as new sources from South America and Russia. Germany became the largest sawnwood producer in Europe and continues to be the greatest consumer by far.

  5. Central and eastern European countries are rapidly increasing domestic consumption, albeit from low levels, and are succeeding in finding new export markets in western Europe, United States and Asia. Russian Federation exports increased dramatically in 1999, although production fell. The ongoing recovery from the 1998 Asian economic crisis allowed ECE region exporters’ markets in Japan to rebound.
