Lumber production amounted to 26 million m³ according to Rosstat which is almost 4% more than in 2017 (25.1 million m³).

Increases were also observed for all wood materials sectors, partly even substantial ones. Russia's plywood production, for instance, totaled 4 million m³ last year (+7%). and a full +9% for fiberboards, 649 million m², as Rosstat indicates. A plus of 17% to 9.7 million m³ is the 2018 balance for chipboards (incl. OSB).

Window production remained at a level of 605,000 m².
