This work analyzed the Brazilian cellulose industry concentration level between 1998 and 2007, focusing on the sector’s main performance indicators. The necessary data was collected from BRACELPA’s Statistical Reports during the same period. The concentration level was determined according to the following indexes: Concentration Ratio (CR); Herfindahl-Hirschman Index (HHI); Theil’s Entropy Index (E); and the Gini Coefficient (G). The primary conclusions were that the CR(4), CR(8), HHI, and Theil’s indexes presented high figures in spite of occasional fluctuations. The inequality of the industry, as measured by the Gini coefficient, was considered high, confirming the initial hypothesis of the work.
