Each year, FSC conducts a market survey to examine market trends and gain insights into how FSC certification benefits our customers and different industries and regions. In 2012, more than 4,000 FSC certificate holders participated in the survey.

The FSC Global Market Survey Report 2012 shows that the distribution of FSC certified products has grown significantly in recent years and continues to grow every day as consumers choose products from well-managed forests. Having this information on the impacts of growth in the global FSC market is important for FSC and our stakeholders. The insights about market developments and future trends also show where FSC certification makes a difference for certified businesses and forests and where we can improve our efforts.
