Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Demand for Sustainable Materials to Boost Growth

The high demand for environmentally sustainable construction materials is surging on account of the increasing awareness of damages caused to the environment amid the manufacturing processes of bricks and cement. Hence, technicians and consumers are inclining towards the usage of sustainable materials. Government bodies are supporting the adoption of cross laminated timber as it is made up of wood. It also has acoustic and thermal insulation properties, unlike the conventional construction materials. These factors are expected to accelerate the cross laminated timber market growth in the near future. However, if water gets accumulated in the timber, bacteria and mold can form in it. It may hamper growth.


Residential Segment to Grow Steadily Backed by Development of Multi-family Buildings

Based on application, the residential buildings segment earned 41.04% in terms of the cross laminated timber market share in 2019. This growth is attributable to the increasing usage of cross laminated timber for developing multi-family buildings.

Regional Insights-

Rising Usage in Construction Small & Medium-sized Buildings to Propel Growth in Europe

Geographically, Europe stood at USD 466.48 million in 2019. It is anticipated to retain its dominant position throughout the forthcoming years. This growth is attributable to the increasing adoption of cross laminated timber for the construction of medium and small-sized houses.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is likely to show significant growth fueled by the high demand for this timber from New Zealand, Australia, and Japan. As the product has excellent seismic performance characteristics, it is utilized for creating wood-based buildings in this region.
