The increasing demand for environmental-friendly packaging products to replace non-recyclable packaging materials is expected to have a positive impact on industry growth.

Based on the Product Insights, the market is segmented into MDF, HDF, Particleboard, OSB, Softboard, Hardboard and Plywood.

  • Softboard is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2017 to 2025 owing to its multipurpose application scope across the end-use industries. The product is easy to handle and transport as it offers lightweight and low density. Increasing product penetration in the industry is likely to have a positive impact on industry growth over the projected period.
  • MDF offers consistent shape, strength, and size which is likely to drive the product demand in furniture manufacturing applications. However, it offers poor water resistance and is susceptible to humid atmospheric conditions, which is expected to hamper the industry growth in external applications over the forecast period.
  • HDF is majorly used in non-load-bearing interior applications. It finds application in manufacturing interior designs, cupboard backs, furniture components, shutters, doors, and packaging products. Various characteristics offered by the product, including high stability, easy processing, smooth surface, and increased density, are expected to have a positive impact on industry growth.
  • Particleboard has an ability to substitute its latter parts, such as plywood, owing to its lower cost. In addition, it is denser and more uniform as compared to traditional wood products and plywood, which is expected to have a positive impact on market growth over the forecast period.
