The global marine plywood market reached a value of US$ 7.7 Billion in 2018. Marine plywood is a good-quality, hardwood plywood made with waterproof glue. They are generally used for building boats and ships, and any other applications in which the plywood can get exposed to water. Earlier, the major applications of these plywood were confined to the marine industry. However, with increasing technological advancements, they are now also being used in several residential and commercial purposes.
Marine plywood performs well in humid and wet conditions. Moreover, unlike most woods, it also resists the bending, warping or delamination which can often result from too much moisture. This guarantees marine plywood’s durability as well as the structural strength of any construction which makes use of it. Marine plywood is often composed of several face and core veneers, with an effort to reduce the size of any gaps between the sheets. This ensures no water can become trapped. Sheets are glued together for strength and durability and a coat of water and boil proof (WBP) glue provides additional resistance to moisture.
The utilization of marine plywood in the marine industry for manufacturing stringers, floor, transom, boat cabinetry, walls, seating, etc. is anticipated to drive the marine plywood industry in the coming years. Additionaly, the growing popularity of marine plywood in other applications like building rooftops and doors in residential spaces is expected to further fuel its demand. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value US$ 12.2 Billion by 2024 exhibiting a CAGR of around 8% during 2019-2024.
