Wood Resource Quarterly

Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ), the source for global wood price data and market information, is now in its 18th year with comprehensive analysis of wood market trends for the international forest industry. Each report is approximately 50 pages in length and includes delivered sawlog prices and pulpwood prices and market information from all major regions of the world, including Europe, North America, South America, Oceania and Asia . The report of approximately 50 pages also provides global indices of wood costs, global wood fiber market commentary, pulp grade fiber costs, and a summary of trade of wood chips around the world each quarter.

The key factor determining a company’s global cost competitive position remains its raw material base and the cost of available wood resources. Wood costs account for between 40-50 % of the production costs for pulp manufacturing, and 65-75 % of the total production costs for sawmills.

Timely knowledge of global wood fiber costs and trends remains a cornerstone for competent internal strategic planning within the forest products industry.
