The Europe wood based panel market is expected to reach USD 28.03 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing demand for lightweight, high strength, and sturdy materials for packaging applications is expected to propel growth.
The region is one of the largest and the strictest markets for conventional and sustainable timber products as it is governed by several stringent rules and regulations. The market witnessed high demand-supply gap during the economic downfall in the region, which impacted the revenues of suppliers. However, economic recovery in the region, which further is driving the construction and packaging sector growth is expected to propel product demand over the projected period.
The industry has several major players with high production capacities and strong foothold. These players are expected to undergo consolidations in order to strengthen their presence in the domestic as well international markets.
High production capacities, wide product portfolio, lack of product innovations and relatively slower growth of the application industries in the region are expected to increase rivalry. However, increasing demand for innovative products, particularly in decorative applications, is expected to open new avenues for the players.
