Because of the large economic growth in China there are many companies who have economic interests in the Chinese market. Also in the forest market companies have started to invest in China and the interest for the market is growing. The question is how the Chinese forest market will develop in the years to come? How will China's entry on the market of forest products affect the global forest market? The purposes of this study are to describe production, consumption and trade of forest products, and China's possible competitive advantage in the forest industry. The purpose of this study is also to describe how China's entry on the forest market affects the world market of forest products. The study is based on a couple of different theories such as competitive analyzes, trade- and investment theories. The theories have then been analyzed with data, collected from the Internet, and interviews. The conclusion of the study is that the production of forest products in China will expand as the production capacity increases. A problem for the production is the lack of raw material, which will result in a large import. China's total import of forest products will still not increase considerable much because of the expansion of the domestic production. The investments in the Chinese forest industry will continue as long as the market is expanding and the returns on investments are good.
