    The main objective of this study was to gather information on the volume of wood products used by industrial manufacturers across the United States (U.S.). Specific objectives included the following: 1. To identify and categorize the main industrial manufacturing industries in the U.S. that are likely to use wood products (using the North American Industrial Classification System - NAICS); 2. To quantify the type and volume of wood products used by these manufacturers; 3. To see whether that volume has increased, decreased or stayed the same from the past few years and if it is expected to increase, decrease or remain the same in the near future; 4. To document wood/non-wood substitutions; 5. To identify specific industrial manufacturing categories for follow-up market research (i.e., identify industries where either wood product’s market share is at risk or represents opportunities for growth).
