Hence, with the huge number of wooden structures further expected to be constructed, the Cross Laminated Timber Market is estimated to grow rapidly during the coming years.
  • According to statistics of European Union, countries such as Sweden use 84%, Germany uses 20% prefabricated materials in constructing houses mainly consisting of wooden structures. About 6 lakh new houses in Sweden and 3 lakh new houses in Germany are to be built by 2025 to cater the rising demand from the growing population. This is expected to create a major scope for the growth of cross laminated timber market.
  • Residential sector dominated the use of cross laminated timber in construction. Japan leads in the usage of cross laminated timber across the globe followed by Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Canada.
