[:Importance of European Forest Products (excl. Russia)] [::] Forest products are still biggest income and employment generator in the European forest based sector (over 2 million jobs) [::] Value of European forest products sales in 2012 estimated to be €200 billion; a bit more than total turnover of European company giants, Nestlé, PSA Peugeot Citroen and Deutsche Telekom [::] Produced 372 mil. m3 industrial roundwood in 2013, which generated probably around €15 billion income for forest owners [\textbackslash n] [...]

[Major studies have projected shortage of forest biomass in EU towards 2030] [::] EU forest based bioenergy production is assumed to double from 2010 to 2030 [::] EU forest biomass demand in 2030 is almost 1/3 bigger than supply (currently supply 20 \% {$>$} demand) [\textbackslash n] [...]

[Implications drawn from these results] [::] Wood resources in the EU as a whole will not suffice to reach the targets for renewable energy [::] ” This means that without additional measures, forests and other sources of wood in EU cannot maintain their large share as a renewable energy source without leaving a shortage for the forest-based industries” [::] Possible policy trade-offs between biomass demand for energy and materials, and with biodiversity [\textbackslash n] [...]

[Policy recommendations] [::] Reassessand updatelong-term outlook for European forest-based sector [::] Place strong emphasis on the role of carbon price [::] Be prepared for product-related services [::] Sustainabilityand resource-efficiencyare necessities [::] Invest more in research, development and education

[:A coherent and well-coordinated forest-related policy framework] to

[::] Address existing regulatory and market failures [::] Reinforce cross-sectoralpolicy coordination [::] Understanding limits of forest resources, societal values, and trade-offs between different forest uses [::] Regional specificities in Europe -one size does not fit all [::] Long-term predictability for investments and planning},
