Firewood Processing Machine Market: Introduction
A firewood processing machine is specifically designed for cutting and splitting the firewood with minimal manual handling of the firewood logs. These firewood processing machines consist 4 major parts: log deck, saw station, splitting chamber, and the out-feed. All of these parts of a firewood processing machine are dedicated to different functions. While crafting firewood processing machines, major factors taken into consideration includes: safety, efficiency and environmental responsibility. According to the National Firewood Association, recent increase in dynamics of the firewood market has led to major developments, as well as improvements of novel technologies for processing wood more efficiently also while reducing labor and time for firewood correction.
Firewood Processing Machine Market: Dynamics
The growing interest about wood as fuel regards not only pellets and wood chips but also firewood, majorly in rural and mountain areas where domestic heating plants are extensively used, has immensely created market growth opportunities for firewood processing machines. Owing it to the increase in demand for firewood, various harvesting activities have tremendously extended on broadleaved high forests as well as coppice.
The market for firewood processing machine have become demanding regarding certain characteristics, such as, wood species, dimensions and water content. In 2010 European Standard EN 14961-1 defining classes and specifications of solid bio-fuels, a specific standard for firewood was introduced, which further defined 3 different quality classed for the non-industrial use of firewood. These systems are able to allow dealers and producers to declare their good’s quality, further differentiating them in the market with the help of a labelling scheme. Certain technological advancements and development of new technologies is expected to trigger market growth for firewood processing machines during the forecast period.
Another main factor contributing towards the growth of firewood processing machine market is the growth in end use applications. The growth in tourism in cold prone areas will attribute towards the growth of various end use applications like hotels, resorts and restaurants in the region. This is expected to create a surge in demand for firewood which will directly contribute towards the growth of firewood processing machine market during the forecast period.
Rise of room heaters and automated temperature control systems however is expected to hamper the growth of firewood processing machine market. But given the higher price of equipment as compared to firewood, it is temperature control systems are not expected to challenge the growth of firewood, and in turn the firewood processing machine market, on a larger scale.
