The demand-side cooperation in the Finnish forest industry has attracted much research interest during the past decade. However, the upstream or supplier-side cooperation has been less studied. Because of the broad cooperative and coopetitive traditions, the Finnish forest industry constitutes an excellent case in studying cooperation conventions in different parts of the product or supply chain. This research investigates especially how downstream coopetition is reflected upstream, across the borders of supply-side markets such as those for labour and roundwood. An empirical analysis of market information suggests cross-border correlations and causalities, that is, indications of expanded supplier-side coopetition between the two markets.
