    The increasing demand for pulp, paper and panel products and a shrinking forest resource base in India has recently led to the expanded exploitation of alternative fibre sources such as bagasse, straw and recycled material. This report captures these developments and makes an attempt to foresee the scenario to the year 2010.

    The paper examines the impact that alternative fibres, specifically recovered (recycled) and non-wood fibres, have had and may have on the global fibre supply. The properties and availability of each type of fibre are discussed. Based on historical data, three scenarios of future fibre supply were created: a projection of historical trends, an optimal model of high use of both types of fibre, and a minimal model of conservative use. A range of future availability of non-wood and recovered fibre could then be constructed. It was found that, in total, non-wood and recovered fibres currently comprise approximately 51 percent of the current levels of paper and paperboard production. The three scenarios predicted that this fraction would range from 50 to 90 percent of the world’s paper production level by 2010. The projection of historical trends shows a slow increase in alternative fibre content, culminating in a level of about 55 percent of total global paper production by 2010.

    This report reviews the outlook for the supply and demand of roundwood and forest products, and the balance between the two until 2020, while taking into account recycling, energy and trade issues. It covers the forest and forest products sector, including the forest itself, as well as production, trade and consumption of forest products and wood for energy
