Wood based panel is a common term for an array of different board products, which have a good range of engineering properties. While some panel types are relatively new on the market, others have been developed and successfully introduced more than a hundred years ago. However, panel types have a long history of continuous optimization that is still a long way from being fully developed, and they may always have a chance for improvement. Technological developments, on the one hand, new market and regulative requirements, along with a steadily changing raw material situation, drive continuous improvements in wood based panels and their manufacturing processes.
Market Dynamics of the Asia-Pacific Wood Based Panel Market
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
Drivers/Opportunities Faced by the Asia-Pacific Wood Based Panel Market
- Rise in consumer spending on wood based panels in the renovation of homes and furniture
The wood panel industry includes plywood sheets, engineered wood panels, MDF (Medium Density Fibre boards), furniture boards, particleboard, and decorative surface products such as laminates. A rise in consumer spending on wood based panels in the renovation of homes & furniture is expected to boost the wood based panels demand in commercial & residential buildings. Improvement and increase in building renovation activities with the adoption of wood based panels for an increase in the aesthetic is another factor driving the market's growth. Moreover, the increased construction of public buildings, grand hotels, and resorts with decorative wood panels has led to the market's growth.
- Balanced import and export procedures of wood panels among the countries
The global trade in wood products is highly regionalized, with Europe, North America, and Asia. In recent years, the global trade of wood products has changed greatly with the rise in demand for wood panels and the increase in emerging markets of wood panels. In recent years, the increased production & trade of wood based panels product such as plywood, particleboard, fibreboard, oriented strand board, and lumber panels is increased due to the rise in demand from the housing market and the global increase in population.
- Low product cost coupled with superior properties of wood panels, including strength and durability
The wood based panels are specialty products that provide advanced performance, long-term performance, and enhanced durability, less expensive to produce and use. The wood-based panels provide an amazing array of possibilities in terms of both structural and aesthetic applications. Because of its affordability, superior performance, and flexibility in design, construction, and renovation, the use of wood based panels is increasing in residential constructions. Wood-frame construction has improved dramatically with faster construction, better utilization of fiber, less waste, and better quality control. New technological advances in EWPs and connections are positioning the wood products industry to compete successfully in constructing much larger and more complex structures.
- Rise in investments and initiatives towards construction activities for both commercial and residential
The construction industry has become a robust and efficient manufacturing sector worldwide. Across the countries, growth in demand for construction and real estate projects is driven by macro-economic and disruptive megatrends, such as increasing urbanization, expanding trade, demographic trends such as rising income levels, and technology and sustainable environments. With that, various projects have been initiated to create socially inclusive, sustainable communities, as the economic growth of any country is primarily dependent on the development of its infrastructure.
Restraints/Challenges Faced by the Asia-Pacific Wood Based Panel Market
- Rise in concerns of dust by wood panel usage
The wood-based panels cover the production of various products. While the production flow differs from product to product, there are some common features in terms of the key environmental issues. Emissions of dust, organic compounds, and formaldehyde are the main rising concerns while manufacturing wood panel products. Fine particulate matter emissions contribute to dust emissions from wood-based panel production, where particles below 3 µm can constitute up to 50 % of the total dust measured due to dust emissions from wood-based panels' manufacturing, causing health and environmental problems, which is high on the environmental policy agenda.
- Fluctuation in the prices of wood pulp
Fluctuation in the raw materials price will affect the production cost of the wood based panel’s products. The change in the production cost will change the revenue for the manufacturers. Wood pulp is taken from the trees, but due to the more demand in the different regions, import and export of the wood pulp are done within the specified quantity. The raw material is available in various quality and at different rates, due to which wood-based production is very difficult for the manufacturers. Highly fluctuating raw materials costs and ineffective price management can greatly endanger a manufacturer in the market. Due to the raw material price fluctuation, the manufacturers can now fix the product cost, resulting in a loss for manufacturers.
- Fluctuation of raw material prices and supply chain inconsistency
The supply chain ecosystem has become increasingly volatile due to a shortage of factors such as high product costs, transportation costs, etc. Wood product manufacturers are facing many challenges due to the high variability of raw materials. Each processing step in manufacturing impacts material utilization and cost efficiency, which is the reason for the higher material cost. The most common challenge for the wood products manufacturer is to make a profit and execute the manufacturing process at low cost but with high-cost variable raw material.
Post COVID-19 Impact on Asia-Pacific Wood Based Panel Market
COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains, and restrictions on transportation.
