Engineered wood is produced by binding shredded or chipped wood with an adhesive. The structure of the wood pieces determines the type of engineered wood and its features. The basic constituent of engineered wood ranges from large lumber and veneers of different thicknesses to wood chips, wood shavings, wood wool, wood fibers, or sawdust. The selection of the base material not only influences the strength of the engineered wood, but also the surface quality and insulating properties.
The analysts forecast the global engineered wood products market to grow at a CAGR of 26.5% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “A trend that is expected to boost market growth is the development of new technologies. Latest machines and systems with innovative accessories are being developed for producing engineered wood and veneers, with support from the prominent international vendors that specialize in sustainable and efficient manufacturing. Different types of resins based on amino-formaldehyde and urea-melamine are used for the manufacture of engineered woods currently. These resins are preferred due to their cost effectiveness and usability. These resins also offer water resistance; enhancing the lifespan of these products.”
According to the report, a key growth driver is the rising demand for environmentally friendly and durable flooring. Engineered wood has always been the most popular material of choice for environmentally friendly flooring. Unlike other hardwood materials, engineered wood flooring is pre-finished and is easier to mount. With developments in aesthetics, quality, and selections of wood and finishes, engineered wood has become an attractive option for durable flooring.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the necessity to get certification for forest products. Forest product certification was established during the 1990s and is still considered for recognizing wood products that are manufactured from sustainably managed forests.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
