Cross laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood product which was developed in Europe during the early 1990s. It is made by stacking layers of wood panel in alternating directions and bonding them with adhesives or fasteners. This arrangement helps in improving the strength, rigidity, dimensional stability and mechanical properties of the panels, and makes them suitable for load-bearing construction. In North America, CLT was first introduced during the early 2000s and, since then, its usage has gained momentum. It is now used either as a standalone system or in combination with other building materials in the construction of mid-rise and high-rise buildings for residential and commercial purposes. According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled, “North America Cross-Laminated Timber Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the North America CLT market has witnessed a strong growth over the past few years.
As CLT is made from trees, it is renewable and sustainable in nature and helps in storing carbon from the environment. The manufacture, transportation and assembly of CLT also require lesser energy as compared to concrete, bricks, mortar, etc. Since the governments in the North American region are focusing on green building solutions, these factors are facilitating the applications of CLT in the construction industry. Moreover, as CLT is prefabricated and requires minimal installation time, it is more cost-efficient and easier to install as compared to other construction materials. It also offers design flexibility and has a certain aesthetic appeal, which have made it popular among interior designers and architects. Owing to these forces, the North America CLT market is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the next few years.
