Medium-density fiberboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers. It is combined with resin or wax to form flat panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF represents an excellent building material as it can be securely joined with screws and nails with minimal chances of fracturing. Owing to this, it is used in various residential and commercial projects to make furniture, cabinetry, flooring, industrial packaging, toys, ceiling and molding. According to IMARC Group, the global medium-density fiberboard market size reached US$ 25.12 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, the market expects to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
Unlike most of its alternatives, such as particle board or hardboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) offers superior quality. Besides this, it is manufactured from recycled wood which helps in saving trees and protecting the environment. As a result, governments across the world are encouraging consumers to shift towards wood panels, thereby providing a positive thrust to the medium-density fiberboard market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global medium-density fibreboard market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
