Investigating Globalization: The Case of Forest Products' Markets

This paper intends to investigate whether forest products prices are converging on a global basis. Recent market integration studies have analysed price linkages within limited geographic regions, and have frequently concluded that regional forest product markets are integrated. Industrial roundwood prices from all continents are investigated in order to test the hypothesis that forest products markets are globalized. The results indicate that forest products markets have become increasingly global during the last 40 years.
