Lithuania is an important wood sourcing market for IKEA suppliers. Over a lengthy period, Lithuania has developed to become one of the most advanced forestry sectors and furniture industry leaders. It has an abundance of pine and birch forests which neighbour a well-functioning industry creating optimal logistic opportunities. It exports a high volume of well manufactured wood-based furniture across the IKEA supply chain around the world.
