Increasing Number of Applications to Propel the UCFA Segment
The global fire retardant plywood market is segmented based on the product as UCFA and UCFB. The UCFA product type is expected to grab a major market share owing to its widespread application in roof trusses, partition walls, floor joists, platforms, beams, architectural millwork, and rafters. On the other hand, UCFB is anticipated to foresee steady growth during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to surging use of the product in the construction of balconies, roof covering, fences, and paneling.
As far as application is concerned, the global market is segregated as paneling, architectural millwork, roof trusses, and beam. Roof trusses may emerge as a frontrunner in the market as constructors across the globe are making extensive usage of fire retardant plywood in the building roof trusses as stated by the building codes. These type of structures are mainly observed in public places such as railway stations, arenas, airports, cinema halls, and theatres.
North America to Take a Lead in the Coming Years
Presence of majority of the leading players in North America is giving the region an upper hand over other regions, thereby boosting the market growth. Furthermore, increasing focus of the regional government on reducing the property damage and losses and raising the human safety level is acting as a key driver in the market. Other regions such as Europe and Asia Pacific are anticipated to emerge as lucrative regional markets in the forthcoming years. Demand for fire retardant plywood is estimated witness a surge in the developing economies, thereby driving the Asia Pacific market in the coming years.
