Global Plywood Market Dynamics

Future Market Insights suggests that the global plywood market will witness robust growth during the forecast period which can be attributed to the optimistic outlook for the construction industry and increased demand from the furniture industry. The consumption of plywood for the manufacturing of furniture has been increasing. Demand for readymade furniture has been growing, which will indirectly increase the demand in the concerned market. Plywood also finds wide applications in the construction sector as a building material as it substantially reduces the overall weight of the structure. Several future projects involving the building of wooden skyscrapers are expected to further increase the demand for plywood. Plywood is also largely used in the packaging sector, mainly in the industrial packaging of valuable goods. Due to its dimensional stability and mechanical strength as well as light-weight properties, plywood is considered to be a suitable option for packaging. As a matter of fact, since it can be reused, plywood has become the most economical choice for companies engaged in the packaging sector.

However, competitive wood panel products, such as particleboards, MDFs (Medium Density Fibreboards), OSBs (Orient Strand Boards) and composite panel products, are noted to be much economical than plywood, which is an important factor restraining the growth of the market. The formaldehyde glue used in attaching the veneer layers together emits Volatile Organic Compounds and hence, manufacturers are being compelled to use zero – VOC emitting adhesives, such as E0 grade glues. Changes in raw materials and modifying the manufacturing technologies leads to increased overall cost of plywood, which causes the consumers to shift to other wood-panel products.
