The report analyzes the global engineered wood market drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the engineered wood market.

Engineered Wood Market: Overview

Engineered wood, as the name suggests, is artificially created and is also known as manufactured board, composite wood, mass timber, or man-made wood. They are more or fewer derivatives of wood products that are created by fixing or binding fibers, strands, veneers, particles, or in some cases boards of wood. The binding is done using different methods of fixation or by using adhesives to give rise to the composite material, which describes any material manufactured using different types of constituents materials. Generally, engineered woods are manufactured with softwoods or using hardwoods.

The former indicated wood generated from gymnosperm trees whereas the latter is generated from angiosperm trees. There are different types of adhesives used in the process. The least expensive and the most common adhesive is urea formaldehyde resin (UF), however, it is not waterproof. For products that exhibit exterior exposure, phenol-formaldehyde resins are most commonly used. They are yellow or brown. Melamine-formaldehyde resins (MF) are more expensive but also widely used in cases of surfaces that are exposed if the budget is high.

Engineered Wood Market: Growth Drivers

Economic benefits offered by engineered wood to drive market growth

The global engineered wood market is anticipated to grow owing to the economical value offered by composite woods as compared to hardwood. In most cases, engineered wood offers the same kind of physical and mechanical benefits as their counterparts at a relatively lower cost thus making them a preferred choice amongst a large section of consumers, especially in home care settings. Man-made wood is more flexible in terms of meeting consumer requirements as they are comparatively easy to mold. They are readily available unlike hardwood and do not harm the environment which is drastically affected in the case of the use of actual wood due to cutting of trees at a large scale further consequences like soil erosion are also prevented when using engineered wood. These materials can easily be drilled, glued, fastened, and cut without much hassle while also offering cost efficiency. They are widely used in the creation or manufacturing of units like wardrobes, wall partitioning, ceilings, cabinets, flooring, and others.

Engineered Wood Market: Restraints

Toxicity related to man-made woods to restrict market expansion

The global market may witness limitations during its growth period due to the use of toxic materials that are used as adhesives to manufacture engineered woods. Some of these chemicals include formaldehyde, which is an extremely toxic poison that the body can absorb during inhalation. Formaldehyde vapor can lead to skin irritation, severe impact on the respiratory tract, suffocation, and dizziness. Skin or eyes can be severely burnt in case of direct contact with the chemical.

Engineered Wood Market: Opportunities

Growing number of remodeling activities to provide excellent growth moments

With the increasing movement of people along with the growing population, the world is witnessing a surge in remodeling, renovation, and rehabilitation activities to meet the growing housing demand across the globe. To fulfill the needs of the population, the global engineered wood market players will have to invest in the use of manufacturing objects that are not only physically competent but also offer cost-efficient. Engineered woods are the best fit for this type of requirement which could drive the demand for these materials during the projection period. In the first quarter of 2021, the US spent over USD 352.9 billion on remodeling activities. The majority of the expenditure was on home renovation.

Engineered Wood Market: Challenges

Lack of exact properties of hardwood to challenge the market rise

Although in most cases, engineered wood meets the benchmark set by hardwoods, they lack the exact physical, mechanical, and chemical properties that are found in naturally occurring wood. For instance, plywood is known to bend or may even sag when exposed to a high weight which is not the case in a hardwood that exhibits high load-carrying capacity. For this reason, the global market may lose some potential consumers.

Engineered Wood Market: Segmentation

The global engineered wood market is segmented based on application, type, end-user, and region

Based on application, the global market segments are furniture, construction, flooring, and others. In 2021, the furniture segment dominated the global market and it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.59% during the forecast period. The sector grew due to the high demand for attractive and efficient furniture in modern homes. As per Valuepenguin, a US household spends an average of USD 190 on home furniture every month. In 2021, the average expense per consumer reached around USD 716 on furniture alone. Some of the items included in the furniture segment are sofa sets, tables, cabinets, chairs, and closets.

Based on type, the global market is divided into plywood, I-beam, and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). The plywood segment is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR. In 2021, the plywood market in North America was valued at USD 15 million cubic meters. Plywood is popular due to the versatility of the product along with uniform strength and cost efficiency.

Recent Developments:

  • In April 2022, the United Kingdom and Singapore entered a joint venture to launch engineered timber also called Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) in the Indian market along with some other South Asian countries, to target housing projects. The joint venture is anticipated to lead the ambitious project of substituting the use of traditional building materials with LVL
  • In September 2022, The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) launched a new program called the NWFA Engineered Wood Flooring Refinishable Program that aims to identify wood-based products that have wear layers that can be further refinished or sanded
