European Cross-Laminated Timber Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022



Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, is an engineered wood product which is made by stacking layers of wood panels in perpendicular directions and fastening them together. This cross-wise arrangement helps in increasing the structural strength, load-bearing capacity, dimensional stability and rigidity of the wood panels while reducing their shrinkage and swelling. CLT was first developed in Europe during the early 1990s and has now come to represent an important construction material in the region. It is used for a number of residential and commercial applications, either in combination with other building materials and wood products, or as standalone system. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled, “European Cross-Laminated Timber Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the European CLT market reached a production volume of around 725,000 Cubic Metres, exhibiting a CAGR of more than 13% during 2009-2016.

CLT represents an inexpensive, flexible and time-saving substitute to conventional construction materials such as concrete, steel and masonry. This is a result of the prefabrication of CLT according to the desired dimensions and shapes which reduces on-site waste as well as saves installation time. Moreover, it represents an environment-friendly and sustainable building material as it is made of wood. CLT panels also help in reducing the amount of carbon dioxide present in the environment by trapping more than 1500 kg of CO2 per ton. The manufacturing and transportation of CLT produce lesser pollution as compared to the conventional building materials.

Europe Cross Laminated Timber Market

One of the major factors which has facilitated the demand for CLT in the European region is the green building movement which requires constructors to use sustainable and eco-friendly construction material. Amendments in the International Building Code 2015 allowing the use of CLT for large building has also helped in expanding the market. Enhanced marketing and increasing awareness about the advantages of CLT along with improved distribution channels represent some of the other growth inducing factors. As a result, the European CLT market is further expected to reach a production volume of around 1.2 Million cubic metres by 2022.
