Cross laminated timber (CLT) is engineered wood used as building material and designed to complement the light- and heavy-timber framing options. Owing to its dimensional stability and high strength, it can be used as an alternative to steel, concrete and masonry in many building types. It is more economical, environment friendly as it emits less greenhouse gas, it is easy and fast to install as it is prefabricated and provides flexibility in design as it is light weight and strong. During 2009-2016, the global CLT market grew at a CAGR of around 16% . The market is currently being driven by the increasing construction activities and the rising demand coming from the education sector and residential and non-residential applications which are putting a pressure on the supplies of traditional materials and prompting developers to look for speedier alternatives like CLT.
