Drivers – Wood Preservative Market
Demand for wood preservatives is growing due to a shift in consumer preference to the use of environmentally friendly wood preservatives. For instance, the new generation compound Ammonium Copper Quaternary (ACQ) is widely used as an alternative to the wood preservatives Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA). ACQ is used in agricultural poles and structural timber for wood processing. It helps to improve the durability of the treated wood.
Wood preservative demand benefits from an improved economy, changing lifestyles, and increasing construction spending. Residential and non-residential construction markets will see the fastest growth, boosting progressive demand in applications such as decking, landscaping, lumber framing, fire protection, and timber treatment. For applications such as decking, utility poles, and marine piling, the non-building construction industry will see healthy growth and lead to increased demand.
Challenges – Wood Preservative Market
Environmental agencies ‘ bans on the use of some wood preservatives such as CCA, creosote, and pentachlorophenol in some applications which acts as a limitation on market growth. For instance, Directive 2003/EC in Europe prohibits the use and marketing of arsenic and CCA wood preservatives and the use of CCA treated wood in domestic and residential buildings. This further restricts growth of the global wood preservatives market.
Growth in alternative materials such as wood-plastic composites, steel, iron, and plastics that are highly durable and require less maintenance is perceived to be a major limiting factor for this market. Such substitutes are intended to reduce the use of wood across end-use industries and have a negative impact on the market for wood preservatives.
