Key Market Trends

Increasing Automation Will Boost Demand for Forestry Equipment

  • To improve productivity, dependance on mechanized methods for forest harvesting has increased steadily over the years. High-performance equipment such as harvesters can cut a tree from the base, debark it and cut into required lengths within a minute span.
  • Increasing demand for wood and wood products, abreast of the paradigm shift to mechanized processes for felling forest trees, have significantly upheld the demand for forestry machinery. This, in return, pushes for more automation.
  • Moreover, Labor remains the largest overhead in the forest industry at least one-third or more of the total cost in logging operations and a reduced interest in the forest field, the move towards automation is more than fruitful.
  • Automation has eased the need for harder-to-fill jobs while simultaneously lowering the costs of operation by reducing labor overhead.
  • Furthermore, automation will aid new dimensions in the coming years in forest industry by making the task easy, productive, efficient and achieving the desired result in a short span of time.

Asia Pacific to be Fastest Growing Market

  • Asia-Pacific will remain the largest region and fastest-growing region during the forecasted period.
  • Moreover, due to growth in building and construction activities and increasing demand for woods in home furnishing applications, the region is expected to have high volumes of demand.
  • Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific has become a major producer, consumer, and exporter of wood products. Industrial Roundwood production has grown but demand is rising faster, increasing dependence on imports.
  • According to FAO United Nations, 2019 report, total Roundwood consumption has been relatively stable in the region for the last two decades at about 1.2 billion m3 per year, with efficiency gains and recycling reducing the volume of virgin industrial wood required.
  • Thus the demand for forestry equipment in this region is expected to be higher side in the coming years.
