On the 16th of June 2016 the freshly-printed 2015/2016 Edition of EOS Annual Report has been officially presented to the EOS Members in occasion of the EOS General Assembly. The EOS Annual Report is an important document not only for sawmill industry operators but also for the woodworking industry in general and the larger public.

Indeed, this comprehensive publication contains, along with an exhaustive macroeconomic overview and an in-depth review of the larger trends in the woodworking industries, several special focuses on relevant markets for the European sawmill sector. The core of the report is a very detailed review of the European sawmill sector with data provided by the EOS members and an equally detailed review of the EOS advocacy actions. The report has been enriched by precious contributions of sectoral experts.

Going into more detail, the EOS Annual Report contains a general macroeconomic overview of the most relevant facts in the world economy occurred in last few years, with predictions for the short- and medium-term, prepared by macroeconomic experts.
The report also includes a very detailed analysis of the trends in the woodworking sector - with a particular focus on production, trade, employment, and number of enterprises operating in the sector. An impactful country-by-country analysis of the construction sector in the EU makes up an interesting part of the reports.

Sectoral experts have massively enhanced the document by providing comprehensive overviews of the sawmill sector and the wooworking industry in general in some of the most important markets for the European producers, including Japan, China, Egypt, the Russian Federation,  and the Western Balkans.

A detailed one-by-one EOS country members overview of production, consumption, exports, and imports of sawnwood - along with market statements containing important insights on the most relevant European producers -, constitutes a fundamental part of the document.  Equally important is a thorough review of the EOS advocacy actions in Brussels and the position of EOS about the relevant dossiers discussed by the European institutions.

The report is concluded by a summary of the proceedings during the International Softwood Conference and the International Hardwood Conference organized in 2015 by EOS and by an overview of the European standardization actions affecting the sawmill sector.

In short, the EOS Annual Report is a unique opportunity to enhance your knowledge of the European Sawmill Industry and a lot more.
