Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) Market

Rise in global population, increasing urbanization, and rising tourism across the globe have significantly increased the demand for residential and non-residential buildings. This has fueled the use of medium density fiberboard (MDF), as it is majorly used for flooring, door and windows, and in interior designing of the house or buildings. Furthermore, the furniture industry is witnessing a significant surge in demand, largely as a result of rising number of dwellings, and other residential and non-residential buildings. Since a substantial number of furniture is made using medium density fiberboard (MDF) panels, increasing demand for furniture is driving the medium density fiberboard (MDF) market growth. Furthermore, medium density fiberboard (MDF), is also used for manufacturing various other products such as speaker boxes, temporary wooden construction, and shipping boxes. This also plays a substantial role in driving the growth of the medium density fiberboard (MDF) market.

Medium density fiberboard (MDF) offers many advantageous features as compared to plywood. It is more moisture proof, does not bend or crack, has structural stability, and requires little maintenance. In addition, since MDF is an engineered wood, it has a homogenous structure, unlike the wood, which has various surface irregularities, presence of knots, and other issues. Moreover, availability of a wide range of medium density fiberboard (MDF) having varied thickness, durability, and prices, is also driving its demand.

Major medium density fiberboard (MDF) manufacturers such as, Century Plyboards (India) Limited (Century Prowud), Dare Panel Group Co., Ltd., Egger Holzwerkstoffe GmbH, and others offer a wide variety of medium density fiberboard (MDF) to consumers. Moreover, various development strategies are adopted by the medium density fiberboard (MDF) manufacturers to sustain harsh competition in the market. For instance, in September 2020, EGGER Group, expanded its presence in the Lexington, N.C., U.S., for raw particleboard manufacturing and particleboard lamination. This expansion helped the company to enhance its presence in North Carolina, U.S.

Fire-Resistant MDF segment is projected to grow at a highest CAGR

On the basis of product type, the standard MDF segment generated highest revenue in 2021, owing to its wide applications and easy availability. Standard MDF is vastly available in the market, as it is used in many kinds of application such as furniture, cabinets, doors and windows, and others, except the applications and places with possibility of moisture and fire.

The novel coronavirus rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and later became a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted the production of medium density fiberboard (MDF) due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on various applications of medium density fiberboard (MDF) by residential and commercial users. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. As of mid-2022, the number of COVID-19 cases has diminished significantly. This has led to the reopening of medium density fiberboard (MDF) manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities. Furthermore, it has been more than two years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery.

Furthermore, rising standards of living and increasing spendings on home remodeling projects, especially in high income countries are also anticipated to positively influence the medium density fiberboard (MDF) market during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

The medium density fiberboard (MDF) market has witnessed significant growth in past few years, owing to surge in construction and renovation activities of residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, along with surge in the furniture industry. Medium density fiberboard (MDF) is made up of wood particulates, which is mixed with resin and wax, and compressed at high pressure and temperature. Owing to this, MDF has a homogenous and very dense structure, leading to high strength, durability, and resistance towards bending and cracking. Moreover, MDF can also be made water and fire resistant/retardant; thereby, making it widely usable in many applications including water and fire. Furthermore, MDF is made with recycled wood that reduces its carbon footprint, and also significantly reduces its price.

Furthermore, rise in demand for luxurious interiors of homes, especially in high income countries such as the U.S, France, UK, and Germany fuels the demand for medium density fiberboard (MDF). In addition, increased building construction activities in countries, such as China and India have increased the demand for medium density fiberboard (MDF) from residential and non-residential sectors.
