Medium Density Fiberboards Market Scenario


Medium Density Fiberboard Market size is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 5% from 2020 to 2027 to reach an approximate value of USD 50 Billion by 2026.


Fiberboard is an engineered wood material made by breaking down the hardwood or softwood fibers. MDF is fiberboard with density ranging from 600 kg/m³ to 800 kg/m³. It is denser than plywood and made up of separated fibers. However, it can be used for applications similar to plywood. MDF is lightweight and offers an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Thus, it is preferred in applications such as furniture, building materials, and interior decoration. MDF can also provide properties such as high-temperature resistance, fire resistance, and moisture resistance.


Consistent economic growth coupled with low-interest rates has led to an increase in building project approvals across the globe. The expansion of office infrastructure by companies to compete in the global market is driving the demand for furniture and interior design materials thereby, having a positive impact on the product demand. Increase in demand for MDF for furniture coupled with the extensive use of these boards in building materials are factors driving the MDF market.


Global Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) Market has been segmented based on the product, application, and end-user. Based on the product, the global market is divided into standard MDF, moisture-resistant MDF, and fire-resistant MDF. Growing product applications in the construction industry, as well as the furniture manufacturing sector, are projected to be the primary factors driving the standard MDF segment.


Based on Application, the global medium density fiberboard (MDF) market is segmented into the cabinet, flooring, furniture, molding, door, & millwork, packaging system, and others. The furniture application segment is anticipated to grow significantly owing to factors such as the substitution of wood with the medium density fiberboard panels and extensive use in the production of residential and commercial furniture, ready-to-assemble (RTA) products.


Based on End Users, the global market has been divided into residential, commercial, and institutional. The residential end-user segment contributed significantly to the global market in 2019.


Global Medium Density Fiberboard Market size is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5% from 2020 to 2027 to reach an approximate value of USD 50 Billion by 2026.
