Growing Concern Regarding Use of Chemicals for Wood Treatment to Create Opportunities for Thermally Modified Wood Manufacturers
Growing concerns regarding illegal logging and increasing regulations on the use of chemicals for wood treatment are the two factors anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for thermally modified wood manufacturers in future.
- In 2008, the amendments made in Lacey Act increased implementation of regulations associated with the trade of illegally harvested timber. Huge amount of penalties will be applied to those who illegally try to enter the supply chain. Increased enforcement will thus create significant growth opportunities for domestically sourced wood products, such as thermally modified wood. Furthermore, chemicals used for the treatment of wood, such as chromated copper arsenate, are potentially harmful chemicals and have been discontinued for residential applications in the US.
This has created significant demand for wood products treated using chemical-free processes, such as thermally modified wood. Hence, the demand for thermally modified wood is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period.

Europe Holds a Majority of Share in Global Modified Wood Market
Europe is the most prominent market in the global modified wood market. The region is the largest producer as well as consumer of modified wood for various applications, such as decking, cladding, window, doors, etc. Additionally, the market in North America is also expected to witness significant transitions in future owing to growing preference for thermally modified wood over pressure treated wooden products.
Lack of Awareness About Concerned Product
The biggest challenge faced by the global manufacturers of modified wood is lack of awareness about the product among both consumers and intermediates. People across major economies do not have sufficient actual knowledge about what modified wood is.
Moreover, those who know about this kind of wood either think it’s too expensive or not available easily. These two factors will have a significantly negative impact on the overall sale of modified wood globally.
High price point associated with products manufactured from modified wood will also remain a longstanding challenge facing manufacturers of modified wood, operating in the global marketplace.
