The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Cross-Laminated Timber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global cross-laminated timber market reached a value of US$ 470 Million in 2016, growing at a CAGR of more than 16% during 2009-2016. Cross-laminated timber is produced by gluing or fastening kiln dried wood panels in a crosswise arrangement. This configuration improves the mechanical properties of the wood panels and makes them suitable for use in external and internal walls, floors, ceilings and roofs. As a result, cross-laminated timber panels are extensively being used in the construction of mid- and high-rise buildings worldwide, either as a solitary system or in combination with other construction materials such as concrete, masonry and steel.
