The Wood Market | France

The wood market concerns the entire use of wood as a fuel for stoves or fireplaces or as a material in the construction of timber-framed houses.

The wood market in France is worth 2.16 billion euros (source: Mpbois.net). In particular, wood is a very important element for the renewable energy sector since it represents 40% of the primary material consumption of the sector.

Some of France's forests are public and are therefore managed by a public body, the ONF (Office National des Forêts). These public forests contribute nearly 40% of the wood harvested nationally (source: Ademe). In addition, the market is driven by many intermediate size sawmills that operate forests and have a wood processing activity (like pallets, boards and plates).

Strategic issues affect manufacturers who make wood an essential component of their marketed products such as furniture or wood-frame houses. Procurement policies (internalized or not) have major impacts on the prices of finished products.

Despite forests covering 30% of French territory (4th European forest), France regularly has a trade deficit (5.6 billion in 2013 euros). Thus, political measures to support the sector are fairly regular. The Energy Transition Act directly favours wood, which accounts for about 40% of primary renewable energy consumption.
