Forestry and Logging Market Size & Growth 2021-2026:

The forestry and Logging Market is estimated at USD 285.2 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach a revised size of US $ 438.5 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% over the period 2021-2026.

The Forestry and Logging Market consists of the sale of logs and forest products by entities (organizations, individual traders, and associations) that produce or harvest logs and forest products and are involved in the cultivation, felling, and harvesting. Timber transport, forest area operations, growing trees for reforestation, and collecting forest products such as gums, bark, and fibers.  Forest and logging industry companies cultivate and harvest timber on a production cycle of 10 years or more.

Companies in this industry are specialized in the different stages of the production cycle. Reforestation requires the production of seedlings in specialized nurseries. In the long term, wood production requires appropriate areas of land or natural forests. The ripening time of the wood depends on the species of tree, the climatic conditions of the region, and the destination of the wood. Logging (except on a very small scale) requires advanced machinery specific to the industry. Companies in the sector collect forest products such as gums, bark, balm needles, rhizomes, fibers, Spanish moss, ginseng, and truffles. The growth of the forestry and logging market during the historic period has been driven by growth in residential construction activity, increasing demand for cruise ships, increased demand for paper and tissue products, and economic growth in emerging markets. This growth has been limited by forest fires and geopolitical tensions.

Impact of COVID-19 on Forestry and Logging Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had, often devastatingly affected all aspects of global societies and economies. This has created challenges for the ability of the forest sector to function from long-term challenges for economic viability to the recovery of supply chains and working conditions. The pandemic has simultaneously highlighted the global need for forest products. From personal protective appliances, building materials, sanitary needs, packaging to energy, and a variety of other uses, wood, and wood fibers are essential in our day-to-day lives. The global forestry and logging market is suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic due to construction delays, market access, and logistics issues related to transportation and border regulations. Labor shortages due to the impact of COVID-19 have also hampered the growth of the forestry and logging market. Research on COVID-19 provides current techniques and alternative methods to mitigate the impact of Coronavirus on Forestry and Logging Market incomes.

Companies are reorganizing their operations and recovering from the impact of COVID-19, which previously led to restrictive containment measures, including social distancing, remote working, and the shutdown of business activities which resulted in operational challenges.

Recent Developments:

  • In 2021, West Fraser Timber Co Ltd completed the acquisition of Norbord Inc for a whopping 4 billion USD and is looking forward to lower carbon emissions in the forestry and logging industry.
  • In 2020, Rayonier Inc. entered into a definitive merger agreement with Pope Resources for 554 million USD to significantly expand and enhance their Pacific Northwest timberland and real estate portfolio.

Drivers and Restraints:


Increased construction of wooden buildings, adoption of automated forest management, increased use of biomass, and growing demand for wooden furniture are expected to drive the forestry and logging market. The timber used as a building material is increasing due to the many advantages of timber buildings over concrete buildings, which is boosting the market for forest and timber producers. Aerial seed bombardment is adopted for planting trees in a large area. Aerial reforestation is the process of dropping sharp containers of saplings from planes that can plant nearly a million trees every day. The falling cans are made of biodegradable materials and contain a seedling filled with soil and nutrients.

Advanced techniques in logging methods have improved safety, fiber utilization, environmental protection, and productivity with minimal damage to residual trees. The various improved logging methods are logging/carrier systems, cable logging systems, and helicopter logging. Harvester or forwarder type felling is more common in northern and central Europe and its use is expected to increase in the future due to its economic, ergonomic, and ecological advantages over motorized / manual felling (saw/drag).


Strict regulations, alternative building materials, labor shortages, and the impact of COVID-19 are major factors that could hamper the growth of the forestry and logging market in the future. Strict regulations have always been a big challenge for the forestry and logging market. In response to natural disasters allegedly caused by deforestation, various countries around the world have imposed full or partial logging prohibitions on natural forests. Therefore, banning or restricting wood products is seen as a corrective measure aimed at promoting forest conservation and protection and securing broader forest benefits for future generations.
