Research and Markets: 2012 Report on the $80 Global Wood-Based Panels Market - Opportunity and Environment, Analyses and Forecasts to 2016

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vljctn/global_woodbased) has announced the addition of the "Global Wood-Based Panels - Market Opportunity and Environment, Analyses and Forecasts to 2016" report to their offering.

The global wood-based panel market valued over US$80 billion in 2011, of which the Asia-Pacific market accounted for a 40.6% share and was the largest wood-based panel regional market. It was followed by the European and North American markets, both of which managed to retain their respective positions as the second- and third-largest markets despite the impact of the global financial crisis. Moreover, continuing market uncertainty in Europe and sluggish growth in the US is expected to reduce the market share of both markets over the forecast period, with the Asia-Pacific market expected to gain at their expense due to rapidly increasing demand from continually expanding economies such as China and India. Overall, Timetric expects the share of the European wood-based panel market to fall from 33.6% in 2011 to 28.6% in 2016, and projects that the share of the North American market will fall from 18.1% in 2011 to 14.6% in 2016.
