Australia and New Zealand Cross Laminated Timber Market Share, Size, Trends and Forecast Till 2023
United States, 6 March 2019 -- The growth of the Australia and New Zealand CLT market can be accredited to the advantageous characteristics of CLT, rising environmental concerns among the governing bodies, introduction of green building policies, and increasing applications in commercial and infrastructural projects.
The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Australia and New Zealand Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, estimated that the cross laminated timber market in Australia and New Zealand reached a volume of XX Cubic Meters and XX Cubic Meters, respectively. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) arrived in Australia and New Zealand later than in Europe and North America, and rapidly gained popularity within the engineering community. It is preferred across both the residential and non-residential sectors owing to its advantageous characteristics such as dimensional stability, versatility, strength, easy and faster installation, low greenhouse gas emissions, light weight, and aesthetic appearance. On account of growing environmental concerns, the demand for green buildings is increasing in Australia and New Zealand. In line with this, builders are focusing on better construction practices and opportunities for innovation with new materials and techniques as well as business strategies and industry transformation. CLT has been identified as one of the materials with prospects for contribution in all of these areas.
The eco-friendly nature of CLT makes it a promising alternative to concrete as a core construction material. Owing to this, the governments in Australia and New Zealand are encouraging consumers to shift towards wood panels. For instance, Tasmania has adopted a state-wide Wood Encouragement Policy (WEP), whereas, the Rotorua Lakes Council in New Zealand is encouraging the use of natural timber-based products in construction. As a result, the share of green-rated buildings is further anticipated to increase, thereby intensifying the demand for CLT in infrastructural constructions. Moreover, technical advancements coupled with the aesthetic value of CLT has led several construction companies in Australian and New Zealand to build structures over 10 storeys in commercial spaces. Due to these factors, the cross laminated timber market in Australia is projected to reach a volume of XX Cubic Meters by 2023, growing at a CAGR of XX% during 2018-2023. On the other hand, the New Zealand cross laminated timber market is projected to reach a volume of XX Cubic Meters by 2023, registering a CAGR of XX% over the forecasted period.
Australia and New Zealand Cross Laminated Timber Market Segmentation:
Australia Market Breakup by Application
• Detached Houses
• Non-Residential Units
In Australia, the CLT market has been segmented as detached houses, residential units and non-residential units. Currently, non-residential units dominate the market, holding the largest share. This can be attributed to the growing preference for sustainable building materials like CLT which reduce fresh water consumption, enhance indoor environment quality and help in keeping the environment clean by generating zero waste during production.
New Zealand Market Breakup by Application
In New Zealand, the market has been bifurcated into residential and commercial units. Amongst these, residential units exhibit a clear dominance as cross-laminated timber is better suited for multi-storey buildings.
Some of the major players operating in the Australia and New Zealand CLT market include KLH, StoraEnso, Binderholz and XLam.
