Glue Laminated Timber Market Trends




  • Increasing demand from building & construction sector is driving the market growth.




Glue laminated timbers are versatile and innovative construction materials used widely in commercial and residential projects. According to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), China approved 26 infrastructure projects with a total expected investment of 981.7 billion yuan (US$142 billion) in 2019. Many glulam timber structures have been constructed in China, including bridges, temples, gymnasiums, exhibition galleries, museums and other public buildings. China State Construction Technology Exploit Corporation Limited undertook the task of exploiting the technology of glulam timber beam. The glued laminated heavy timber structure uses a cross-section of larger laminated wood components to form the force system. The heavy laminated wood structure is mainly used in long-span and large-space buildings, such as bridges, large public buildings, etc. Because of its excellent structural form, and intimate and natural material, the glulam timber structure is the key choice for constructing green building materials. This factor drives the market CAGR.


Additionally, glue laminated timber has no negative environmental effects. Glulam products have a natural place in an eco-cycle society. The engineered wood is renewable and recyclable, while its manufacture is largely based on bio-energy. Glulam beams are very efficient to produce. The energy required to produce a glue-laminated beam from the log is only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel or concrete. Glulam has superior earthquake resilience and greater resistance to fire than any other structural construction material. Hence, its superior structural performance and flexibility in esthetic design will boost the demand for glulam laminated timbers. Glue-laminated timber has no negative environmental effects.
