DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022" report to their offering.
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 (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.
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.
