IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Cross-Laminated Timber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global cross-laminated timber market reached a value of US$ 470 Million in 2016, growing at a CAGR of more than 16% during 2009-2016. Cross-laminated timber is a wooden panel created with multiple layers of lumber board. The panels are composed of uneven number of layers of lumber, such as three, five, seven or more, depending on the application. They are then glued in the crosswise configuration which increases their dimensional stability, rigidity and load-bearing capacity. These panels hold strength equivalent to steel or concrete, thereby substituting traditional construction materials. Owing to this, CLT panels are used in both commercial and residential applications such as in the construction of mid-rise apartments, churches, office buildings and bridges.
Highlights of the global cross-laminated timber market:
- Environmental and financial benefits of CLT are the major factors driving the market growth.
- Residential applications dominate the market, accounting for more than a half of the total share.
- Europe is the largest producer, and holds the majority of the global production.
