The hardwood segment is one of the fastest-growing type segments during the forecast period.

Based on type, the hardwood segment is expected to be one of the fastest-growing segments whereas softwood is the largest segment during the forecast period. Hardwood plywood offers a robust, reasonably priced, and ethically produced alternative. Softwood plywood is often used for industrial and construction projects, while Hardwood plywood is typically utilized for items like furniture and cabinets.

Softwood plywood is available in different grades for various applications. Softwood plywood in home construction exists in addition to roofs, walls, and flooring. Plywood is frequently used to cover soffits and eaves. Certain types of plywood, most notably T-111 siding, a grooved sheet product designed to resemble reverse board and batten siding, are produced expressly as siding products.

The rehabilitation segment in uses type is expected to hold the highest growth during the forecast period.

The rehabilitation of buildings is one of the areas with a growing market in multifarious countries, especially in large urban centers where there is a low inventory of land available for new construction. The building rehabilitation and maintenance market is one of the most important economic sectors in construction, especially in the most developed societies.

For instance, Europe is one of the prominent rehabilitation and maintenance markets due to its old infrastructural design. In the United States, this sector also accounts for an important fraction of the construction market.

In addition, there are many other factors that indicate that the rehabilitation market has high growth potential in many countries: the growing social awareness that preservation and enjoyment of the building heritage have acquired, the favorable prospects offered in certain areas by the cultural sector as an engine for activity (cultural tourism), the progressive aging of existing housing, and so forth.

Asia Pacific water storage systems market is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

APAC accounted for a share of 77.0{a57a8b399caa4911091be19c47013a92763fdea5dcb0fe03ef6810df8f2f239d} of the plywood market in 2021 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.6{a57a8b399caa4911091be19c47013a92763fdea5dcb0fe03ef6810df8f2f239d} in terms of value during the forecast period. High economic growth rate, growing manufacturing industries, cheap labor, and global shift of consumption and production capacity from the developed markets to the emerging markets in the region are the factors leading to the growth of the plywood market in the Asia Pacific.

China is the key market in the region, consuming more than half of the demand for plywood. The market in the region is mainly driven by the presence of a large number of leading global plywood companies. China’s wood and wood products industry has a huge influence on the worldwide market as the world’s second-largest wood importer (after the United States) and largest wood product exporter. The annual use of wood is expected to be 550-600 million m3, with building, decorating, paper production, and wood processing (furniture, wood flooring, wood-based panels, and so on) being the main consumers. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), new dwelling starts fell 11.4 percent in 2021 compared to 2020, and fell even worse in the first four months of 2022, falling 28.4 percent.
