The European Board Association expressed its hope to create a new era of sustainable development in the construction, furniture, packaging and other markets through innovative artificial board products.
According to the 2021-2022 annual report data of European wood-based panels, the total production of wood-based panels in Europe in 2021 was 63.7 million meters ⊃3;， Increase by 10%. Compared with 2019 before the COVID-19, the total output of wood-based panels increased by 7.6%. Compared with 2019, the production of various types of artificial boards has increased in 2021. Among them, the production of particle board reached 34 million meters ⊃3;， Increase by 12%; The production of medium density fiberboard has reached 12.9 million meters ⊃3;， Growth of 7.6%; The production of oriented particle board has reached 7.2 million meters ⊃3;， 2% increase; The production of lightweight fiberboard has reached 5.6 million meters ⊃3;， Increase by 12.6%; The production of plywood has reached 3.2 million meters ⊃3;， An increase of 12.2%.
From 2019 to 2021, there was strong demand for oriented particle board, mainly in the Chinese and Western European markets. Affected by the decline in construction activities, the demand for oriented particle board in Western Europe will shrink, and there will be a sharp decline in Eastern Europe. The shortage of birch plywood and the limited potential of alternative tree species will hinder the development of demand for plywood. Overall, there are many uncertainties in the short term, which test both supply and demand. But in the medium to long term, the artificial board industry will become even stronger after coming out of the recession.
The wood supply in the wood-based panel industry will face various challenges, and the energy transformation has generated competition for wood in the energy industry. At the same time, new industries such as biomass fuels and biomass chemicals also require wood. It is expected that the demand for artificial board will decrease from 2022 to 2023, but it will begin to rebound and repair in areas such as construction and furniture.（Source: National Innovation Alliance for Forest Products Trade and Investment）
