Plywood is a wood panel made of thin veneer sheets called plies which are pasted together using a glue or adhesive to create a panel that is equally strong or stronger than wood. A plywood panel generally consists of odd number of plies, which helps in keeping the grains of the adjacent layers perpendicular. The veneer layers or plies on the outside are called front and back face while the plies in between make up the core.

The report is structured in such a way that it will allow the reader to develop a thorough understanding of the market. It begins with market definitions, followed by the market background, market dynamics and market analysis by key segments, regional analysis and competition landscape. Each section covers a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the market on the basis of facts, historical developments and key opinions collected from industry participants through dedicated interviews and trends in the market.

Market opportunities for manufacturers have been presented in the subsequent section of the same chapter. This section also includes the impact assessment of market dynamics on the global plywood market at a qualitative level, based on analysis facts and insights.

Subsequent sections of the report provide value (US$ Mn) and volume (‘000 cubic meters) projections for the plywood market on the basis of the aforementioned segments at a global level. The global market values represented in these sections have been agglomerated by collecting data and information at a regional level. The market information, along with key facts and insights, covers unique analysis frameworks, such as absolute $ opportunity analysis, year-on-year growth trend comparison, market share and attractiveness analysis, for each of the sub-types covered in each segment.

The next section of the report presents a summarised view of the global plywood market, based on nine prominent regions considered in the study. The section includes the regional market position, growth potential, trends and market attractiveness analysis for each of these regions.

The market analysis sections cover Y-o-Y growth trends, market share analysis, market attractiveness and incremental $ opportunity assessment for each of the aforementioned segment. These sections analyse the degree to which the global drivers are influencing this market in each region.

All the above sections evaluate the present market scenario and growth prospects in the global plywood market, while the forecast presented in the sections assess the market size in terms of volume and value.

In order to offer an accurate forecast, we started by sizing the current market, which forms the basis of how the global plywood market is expected to develop in the future. Given the characteristics of the market, we triangulated the outcome of three different types of analysis, based on primary research, secondary research and our own analysis. However, forecasting the market in terms of various plywood segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalising them after the completion of the forecast exercise.

In addition, it is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating global economy, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse the market on the basis of key parameters, such as Year-on-Year (Y-o-Y) growth, to understand the predictability of the plywood market and identify the right opportunities available.

As previously highlighted, the plywood market is split into a number of sub-segments. All the plywood sub-segments, in terms of type, grade, application and region, have been analysed on the basis of Basis Point Share (BPS) to understand each individual segment’s relative contribution to the market growth. This detailed level of information is important for the identification of various key trends being witnessed in the plywood market.

Another key feature of this report is the analysis of all the key segments in the plywood market, sub-segments and the regional adoption and revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar opportunity. This is traditionally overlooked while forecasting the market; however, the absolute dollar opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve as well as to identify potential resources from a sales and delivery perspective in the plywood market.

In order to understand the key market segments in terms of the growth and consumption of plywood across concerned regions, XploreMR has developed the attractiveness index, which will help providers to identify real market opportunities.
