Wood Preservatives Market

The Global Wood Preservatives Market is likely to showcase a growth of around 5% during the forecast period. Wood preservatives are used to control the wood degradation problems due to fungal rot or decay, sapstain, molds, or wood-destroying insects.

Between 2015-2019, the global roundwood consumption has increased by 217,475 thousand cubic meters, thus showcasing the increasing demand for wood-based products. As the global demand for wooden furniture is growing on account of rapid urbanization in developing economies thereby escalating construction activities, improving income per capita, and inclination towards wooden products, thus promoting the consumption of wood preservatives. For instance, according to Invest India, 40% of India’s population will be living in urban areas by 2025 up from 31% in 2010 and will account for more than 60% of consumption.
