Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022



Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres. It has a homogeneous texture without layers due to which there is no visible wood grain, rings, or splinters in medium-density fibreboard. As a result of its smoothness, it is considered an excellent substrate for veneer. The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global medium-density fibreboard market reached a value of more than US$ 22 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of nearly 11% during 2009-2016.

Medium-density fibreboard is available in two types – Standard medium-density fibreboard and Moisture Resistant (MR) medium-density fibreboard. Standard medium-density fibreboard is used only for interior applications such as furniture and general fit-outs and is not suitable for areas which are prone to wetting or high humidity. On the other hand, MR medium-density fibreboard is suitable for high humidity areas such as bathrooms and laundries, and for furniture in tropical areas. Further, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 34 Billion by 2022.

On the basis of end-use the market is segmented as commercial and residential. The residential sector is the largest consumer for plywood, accounting for more than half of the total global shares. The report has conducted an evaluation of the market on the basis of key regions and finds that Asia-Pacific is the largest market for medium-density fibreboard.
