Wood veneer is widely used for veneer decoration of furniture and other products, and is a thin veneer or veneer material with the characteristics of precious tree species.
Most tree species can be used as raw materials for making wood veneer. Wood veneer is mainly made of high-quality wood that is free from insect eyes, knots, cracks, similar color differences, and suitable textures. It is carefully processed by skilled workers and processed using fine woodworking machinery and equipment.
The earliest discovered use of wood veneer was 4000 years ago in Egypt, where plants were scarce and wood resources were scarce due to the tropical desert region. However, the ruling class had an extreme love and pursuit for precious wood.
In this situation, people invented the cutting of wood and saw it to the thinnest thickness using the most advanced technology at that time, in order to increase its utilization and efficiency, while also meeting the demand of the ruling class for magnificent wood grain, which is also the earliest prototype of wood veneer today.
In the 19th century, with the rise of the Industrial Revolution and the use of advanced machinery and equipment, the wood veneer industry began to rapidly develop in Europe, experiencing rapid development in the Paris region of France, Hamburg region of Germany, Milan region of Italy, and Valencia region of Spain. In addition, a large number of wood veneer merchants also gathered near Louisville in the United States. Since 1960, wood veneer has been widely promoted and applied in Europe, America, and other countries.
The development of domestic wood veneer industry started relatively late compared to Western countries. With the beginning of reform and opening up, China's home decoration industry has emerged in the world in the past 20 years.
The wood bark sold on the market can be divided into mountain grain, straight grain, dual color grain, shadow grain, tree nodule grain, spiral grain, branch grain, ball grain, and other special grain based on texture; From the perspective of wood species, it can be divided into coniferous wood, hardwood (hardwood), precious wood species, precious redwood, precious non redwood, etc; It can also be classified by region, including Africa, Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Oceania.
From the production method, it can be divided into chord cutting, radial cutting, rotary cutting, and section cutting.
According to the production form, it is divided into natural wood veneer, dyed wood veneer, smoked wood veneer, non imitation cloth wood veneer, thick wood veneer, edge banding strip, and bamboo veneer. The products are quite segmented, with a more complete variety and professional management.
At present, a large number of professional wood veneer professionals have gathered in areas such as Dongwan、Shanghai, Jiashan, Huzhou, Mudanjiang, and Linyi in Shandong, forming professional wood veneer distribution centers.
The wood veneer industry has been developing in China for more than 20 years. After experiencing a period of rapid development, with the implementation of wood restriction policies in major wood supply countries and the gradual improvement of people's environmental awareness, especially the prohibition of log exports, wood raw materials have become tense.
The widespread promotion and popularity of wood veneer have led consumers to gradually shift their attention to products with wood veneer as a decorative material. At lower prices, they enjoy the same effect as solid wood, which meets the psychological needs of modern people for environmental protection.
Therefore, wood veneer products are widely popular, which has promoted the further development of the wood veneer industry and gradually become widely used in various fields. At the same time, the highly integrated and optimized resources of the wood veneer market have further promoted the development of wood veneer.
The current market situation of the wood veneer industry is both an opportunity and a challenge for the majority of wood veneer practitioners. It is necessary to fully tap the potential of wood veneer products, improve the comprehensive utilization and recycling efficiency of wood, and reduce unreasonable consumption of wood.
The development of the wood veneer industry is in line with the national policy of developing a circular economy and building a conservation-oriented society, and its prospects are immeasurable.
Faced with the huge demand from China, Asia, and even the world, wooden veneer practitioners need to seize opportunities and promote the development of the wooden veneer industry to a wider and deeper level.
