In order to benefit more rationally from the wood raw material, a very important natural source today, we should especially deal with the industrial branch processing it. Change and development in the production, import and export quantity and values of Turkish forestry and forest industrial sector has eventually required planning both national forest resources and the sector using these resources on scientific criteria. In this study, based on the last 25 years data, production, import and export potentials of plywood and blockboard in Turkey were analyzed using regression analysis. Consequently, it was estimated that the plywood and blockboard production in 2021 will be 60,000 m3, the export will be 30,000 m3 and import will be 115, 000 m3.
Key words: Plywood-block board trade, production, import, export, regression analysis.
