The wood market - Italy

Available languages


1.1 Definition and scope of study

The term wood is commonly used to refer to the plant tissue that makes up the trunk of secondary-growth plants, such as trees, shrubs, etc. Wood is considered a structural product of plants and is characterized by high strength and resistance. For this reason it is used by man for the most different purposes: it can be processed and therefore be carved, it can be used as fuel for heating, it can be used as material for construction, and finally it is used for the production of paper being rich in cellulose fibers. 

As for the supply of wood, Italy is characterized by a high scarcity of resources. Consequently, most of the raw material used for industrial purposes is imported in the Italian territory, while a high share of the locally produced one is used as firewood. The forest area in Italy is in fact about 10 million hectares, with reference also to the properties of private individuals, municipalities, regions and the state, most of which located in hilly and mountainous areas. In the course of time, there has also been a reduction in the number of companies, especially of a private nature, dedicated to the management of forests.

As far as finished products are concerned, Italian wood furniture industries are recognized as world leaders in the sector and record high export figures, especially with regard to the European market where over 20% of exports are sent to Germany. Italy also registers excellent figures in terms of exports of other wood products and with regard to the paper industry. 

The majority of Italian woodworking operators are small and medium-sized companies grouped in large industrial districts, the most important of which are located in the Triveneto, Lombardy, Puglia and Marche.
