Despite rising residential construction, downstream markets are weaning their reliance on support services, causing the industry to grow sluggishly in the five years to 2016. Moving forward, forest support service providers are expected to generate some revenue from outsourced firefighting and pest control operations; however, this trend will be insufficient to offset reduced demand from primary private markets. In addition, increasing vertical integration by key downstream markets will threaten the industry over the next five years. As a result, slow but steady revenue losses are expected to continue, signaling the long-term decline of this industry.
Operators in this industry assist downstream timber and logging operators in timber valuation, forestry economics and forest protection.
