Laminated veneer lumber Market Trends




  • Growing use in the construction industry to boost the market growth




With rising income levels and an expanding global population, more new building projects are being undertaken in the residential, commercial, and infrastructural sectors. One of the most significant factors driving market for laminated veneer lumber is this. LVL construction takes less time than conventional materials like concrete and bricks, which benefits overall sales. This is because it requires less time to install and shrinks more quickly. Additionally, the production of LVL uses heavy-duty glue, which offers stability and strength in addition to advantages like waterproofing and resistance to rot, insects, and mold. All of these factors help to support a positive market outlook. Furthermore, because the LVL production process is environmentally friendly, numerous governments are pressuring end users to transition to these wood panels. Crafted from thin layers of wood, laminated veneer adds a touch of elegance to any surface.


The main forces behind the expansion of the construction sector include rising housing activity and expanding residential, non-residential, and infrastructural projects brought on by urbanization and population growth. LVL is an engineered wood product in which adhesives combine several layers of thin wood. As a cost-effective solution, LVL products are largely used in residential and commercial construction. House beams, concrete formwork, scaffold boards, purlins, truss chords, and other building materials are made of LVL. The market for laminated veneer lumber is expanding as more LVL is used in residential and commercial construction. Because LVL has many advantageous structural characteristics, its use in creating large prefabricated structures and distinctive wooden homes has grown. In a poll of the real estate market conducted in January 2022, it was discovered that 89 percent of respondents preferred luxury properties such as vacation homes, city apartments, and bungalows above premium commercial property.


With 69 percent of respondents, the price range between USD 13 and USD 34 million was the most popular for a luxurious city apartment or villa. 10% of buyers want to buy in the USD 35 million brackets, while about 21% like to buy in this area. For illustration, The PM Gati Shakti Master Plan for Expressways will be implemented in 2022–2023 to provide quicker transit. At the cost of INR 20,000 crore, the National Highway network would be extended by 25,000 kilometers in 2022–2030. Therefore, it has enhanced the laminated veneer lumber market CAGR globally in recent years.


However, accelerated industrialization and urbanization during the projection period are driving forces behind the global business infrastructure. Additionally, it is anticipated that expanding investment infrastructure and the rehabilitation of established project plants are other factors driving the growth of the laminated veneer lumber market revenue.
