An indispensable architectural product widely used for decorative purposes in claddings, floorings, roof sheathing, internal linings, ceilings, and construction, wood panels are witnessing steady demand supported by a stable construction industry worldwide. Strong construction and housing activity in Asia-Pacific, and improving building renovation projects in North America and Europe are driving demand for wood panels. The market also stands to benefit from research developments in wood engineering, availability of innovative adhesives formulated for bonding all types of wood, and refinement of manufacturing processes. Breakthrough innovation in surface wettability and wood plasticization is helping improve the performance of wood panels. Poised to score the highest gains are products featuring both environmental and performance benefits such as advanced moisture resistance, and impact resistance, among others. Rising concerns over indoor air quality is driving the popularity of formaldehyde free composite wood products. Development of novel adhesive resin technologies will help manufacturers conform to emission norms by reducing formaldehyde emission from composite panels. Growing concerns over large scale deforestation, global climate change, and strict regulation of the forest products industry is triggering the popularity of synthetic wood panels. Engineered wood and composite wood are therefore poised to witness strong demand in the coming years largely at the expense of natural wood panels. Rising low cost imports from China is triggering intense competition in the international market. Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is emerging as replacement for plywood in both construction and housing industries. Cheaper costs and easy installation benefits are spurring demand for ready-to-use wood panels in construction and remodelling activities.
The upcoming report will offer coverage on major companies including Ainsworth Lumber Company, Canfor Corporation, Duratex SA, J.M. Huber Corporation, West Fraser Timberland Inc., and Weyerhaeuser Company, among others.
In addition, the study will also provide:
- Valuable market based intelligence on new emerging trends, growth drivers, issues and challenges.
- Current coverage on company information and latest news and events including strategic corporate developments, and product innovations
- Fresh research perspectives, statistical findings, analyst analysis, and commentaries
- Accurate market estimates, projections, and forecasts across product segments (Particleboard (Including Oriented Strand Board), Plywood, Medium Density Fiberboard, and Other) and major geographic markets (the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan), Latin America, and Rest of World).
