Subject. The article addresses conditions and factors of the domestic sales market development of the timber industry in the region.
Objectives. The aim is to assess the capacity of the domestic market for timber industry products in the target segment of wooden housing construction.
Methods. The study employs statistical data on results of the forestry complex development of the Khabarovsk Krai, interviews with specialists from the Ministry of Forestry and Timber Processing, the Ministry of Construction of the Khabarovsk Krai, heads of forestry enterprises.
Results. We revealed trends in the structure of production and exports of enterprises operating in the Khabarovsk Krai timber industry, the dynamics of production and consumption of forest products in the domestic market of the region. As a result of unfavorable conditions in the main (foreign) sales market, the activities of the timber industry complex enterprises became unprofitable. Implementation of government programs and flagship projects opens up opportunities to develop domestic demand. The capacity of the region’s wooden housing construction market is calculated based on three scenarios.
Conclusions. Sustainable development of the timber industry complex of the region is possible, if government programs and flagship projects are implemented, aimed at the growth of the domestic market of wooden house construction.
