Why does particleboard have the most development potential in the future wood-based panel market?
Particleboard occupies an important position in the wood-based panel industry, because the requirements of the raw materials it uses are the lowest of all board types, no matter what tree species or specifications of wood raw materials, thinning wood, wood processing residues, recycled wood ( (Such as urban waste wood, etc.), even annual woody plants, etc., can be used as raw materials for the production of particleboard.
Factors affecting particle board demand:
Particleboard has a high value-added potential compared to products such as plywood, because the value of plywood and other products depends to a large extent on the diameter and quality of the logs, while the value of particleboards is less dependent on the quality of the logs and more Depends on the quality and performance stability of the product itself. The former is constrained by resources, while the latter has broad prospects for innovation.
The following are the main factors affecting the market demand for particleboard:
The first is the development needs of the construction industry. In the mid-1980s, more than 30% of residential buildings in the United States used mobile houses, assembled houses, or prefabricated houses.
The second is the rapid development of the decoration and maintenance market;
Third, there are many dealers involved in operating particleboard;
Fourth, price factors affect the demand for particleboard.
In particular, the added value of directional particle board far exceeds the added value of timber industry products such as sawn timber and veneer. The development and use of directional particle board has reduced people's requirements for wood specifications and quality, and the technological innovation of wood products has not only realized the conservation and utilization of wood resources, reduced the pressure on resources, and differentiated products have also created for the enterprise. Higher value.
Forecast of future development direction:
1. Product structure
Low-density, lightweight consumer demand is a pressure point for the competitiveness of particleboard cultivation, and it is also the direction for companies to upgrade their product structure. Thin particleboard and thin MDF have a lower cost advantage. Thin particleboard has a larger market demand. space.
2. Technical aspects
The innovation of environmental protection technology for particle board products has become the focus. With the increase of people's income level, the consumption concept has changed dramatically, and health and environmental protection products have become people's first choice. In terms of quality requirements for wood-based panels, the environmental protection standards for furniture materials are becoming higher and higher. Low formaldehyde emission from particleboard is a new trend pursued by consumers. Low formaldehyde emission is an important condition for people to choose particleboard.
3. Application areas
There is great potential for the expansion of particle board applications. The use field of particleboard shows a trend of expanding to the construction industry, and it is mainly used in interior walls. The use of particleboard in the interior wall can reduce the load, increase the use area, and reduce the manufacturing cost. This is in line with the national industrial policy and is the main direction of development of China's particleboard market.
