Market Dynamics 

The construction and infrastructure sector is witnessing a significant upsurge with the growing population and urbanization across the globe. The developments in construction are positively affecting the structural wood screws market. According to the United Nations projections, at the end of 2022, the global population reached 8 billion and is expected to increase to 9.7 billion in 2050. Countries in Asian and African continents are expected to play an instrumental in the global population surge and increasing urbanization.

Structural wood screws have higher shear and tensile strength, leading to a stronger connection between wood and wood or wood and other materials. In addition, the widely used materials used for manufacturing these screws are stainless steel and carbon steel which are known for their high strength. Moreover, structural wood screws do not require a pre-drilled hole, these screws can directly be drilled into the wood, making it quick to work with. Furthermore, structural wood screws provide higher aesthetics, as it can be countersunk or hidden into the wood surface. Moreover, these screws are used in various applications such as in framing, decking, and others including furniture and interior and exterior designing.

Moreover, wood has been utilized in construction for thousands of years, owing to its various benefits. Wood is an eco-friendly construction material, it can be sustainably sourced from the forest, it is bio-degradable, and can easily be recycled or repurposed in other applications, eventually greatly reducing its carbon footprint. Furthermore, wood is also strong and durable; however, not as strong as steel and durable, thus it is widely used in small-scale construction such as one- or two-story buildings. In addition, wood is light in weight.

Moreover, if adequately treated, wood is resistant to fire, and pests, and does not easily rot. The increasing demand for wood in construction is greatly improving the structural wood screws market outlook. For instance, about 1/3rd of the lumber used in the U.S. is utilized in the construction sector. Moreover, according to the USDA Forest Service in Forestry, if the GDP of the U.S. remain above 2.0% the demand for wood is anticipated to increase for expected growing number of houses. In addition, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects the economy to grow by 2.1% each year, on average, from 2021 to 2031. These two factors combined indicate a rising demand for wood in construction in the coming years.  

However, fluctuating cost of raw materials required to manufacture structural wood screws is anticipated to restrain the structural wood screws market growth during the forecast period. 

Moreover, rise in concerns over climate change is greatly influencing the construction industry is a major structural wood screws market opportunity. Governments in various countries are encouraging the use of wood in construction to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction sector; countries such as Germany, Nordic countries, France, Canada, and the U.S. are among the top such countries. 

The demand for structural wood screws decreased in 2020, owing to low demand from different industries due to lockdowns imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic shut-down the construction industry all across the world, leading to a halt in demand for structural wood screws construction. This hampered the growth of the structural wood screws market significantly during the pandemic.

The major demand for structural wood screws was previously noticed from major countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, France, and developing countries having large population such as India, and China. These countries were badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for structural wood screws. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. This has led to the full-fledged reopening of businesses involved in the structural wood screws market, and also led to increased activities in the construction sector.

Furthermore, it has been more than two and a half years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery. Contrarily, as of the beginning of 2023, the number of COVID-19 infection cases surged again, especially in China, this brought negative sentiments in the market, which may have a negative impact on the structural wood screws market for a short duration. Thus, businesses involved in structural wood screws manufacturing must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to such crises and find new ways of working.
