Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam) Market

Global Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam) Market Size, Share: By End Use: New Construction, Replacement; By Application: Floor Beam, Trusses and Supporting Columns, Window and Door Headers, Roof Beam, Others; Regional Analysis; Market Dynamics: SWOT Analysis, Porter's Five Forces Analysis; Competitive Landscape; 2024-2032

Global Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam) Market Outlook

The global glue-laminated timber (glulam) market size was around USD 2,790.89 million in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during 2024-2032 to reach a value of USD 4,38741 million by 2032.

 

Key Takeaways

  • In 2022, companies in Austria and Germany produced a total of 2.84 million m³ of glue-laminated timber (glulam).
  • In 2022, the Hasslacher group stood as Europe’s largest glulam manufacturer with its four production sites in Germany and Austria with a production output of 355,000 m³.
  • Glulam manufacturing is considered a resource-efficient process. The timber is majorly homegrown spruce retrieved from sustainably managed forests.

 

The increasing preference for wood-based construction materials owing to their benefits, including high thermal strength, chemical resistance, durability, and lightweight is expected to positively influence the expansion of the global glue-laminated timber (glulam) market.

 

Glue-laminated timber is considered as a substitute for steel beams and softwood timber. Moreover, it is consistent and can be produced in larger sizes than individual pieces of timber.

 

Glulam has high load-bearing capacity and low weight, making it advantageous to create large open spaces without the need for support beams. Also, it can span up to 100 metres without intervening support.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Rising sustainability concerns; favourable government initiatives; growing application of glulam; and capacity expansions are impacting the glue-laminated timber (glulam) market growth

Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam) Market Trends

The market has been supported by the increasing construction of green buildings. Moreover, the stringent government policies aimed at reducing building emissions have driven the demand for glue-laminated timber.

 

Globally, with the increased focus on sustainable development, several countries are shifting their residential, commercial, and industrial sectors of construction towards glue-laminated timber. Glulam encourages better use of natural resources and is majorly produced using wood from reforested forests.

 

Increasing applications of glulam

The expanding levels of industrialisation, infrastructure development, consumer spending, and construction activities are positively contributing to the demand for glulam in various applications. Due to the technical advancements, several large structures such as bridges, airports, and large commercial spaces are being built using glue-laminated timber in several countries.

 

Rising concerns about environmental protection

The increasing awareness of environmental protection is creating a need for sustainable carbon black products, propelling the market players to develop and launch products that meet the changing customer preferences. Due to the environment-friendly nature of the wood panels, governments across major markets are encouraging consumers to shift towards wood panels which are expected to further increase the demand for glue-laminated timber.

 

Rising capacity expansions

Companies across the globe are significantly expanding their production capacities, supported by the push towards sustainability.

 

Increasing government support

As various governments across Europe and North America are promoting the use of green construction materials, the demand for engineered wood products is expected to significantly increase.

 

Market Segmentation

“Global Glue-Laminated Timber (Glulam) Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032” offers a detailed analysis of the market based on the following segments:

 

Market Breakup by End Use

  • New Construction
  • Replacement

 

Market Breakup by Application

  • Floor Beam
  • Trusses and Supporting Columns
  • Window and Door Headers
  • Roof Beam
  • Others 

 

Market Breakup by Region

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

 

Based on end use, new construction accounts for a significant glue-laminated timber (glulam) market share

As glue-laminated timber is a versatile product and has strength and versatility, its demand for expansive door and window openings, modern open floor plans, and tall walls, among others, is increasing.

 

In replacement and renovation activities, glue-laminated timber is used as a substitute for various conventional building materials, due to its ecological and economic benefits as well as its superior aesthetic profile.

 

Furthermore, glue-laminated timber is being increasingly adopted in older buildings to provide structural support and enhance the original decorative elements.

 

Based on application, floor beam accounts for a significant share of the glue-laminated timber (glulam) market

Glulam is made with small pieces of lumber to create a sizable wood structure, making it resource efficient. Additionally, due to its high strength, cost-effectiveness, and customizable nature, glulam is being used as floor beams. Moreover, the use of floor beams made of glulam ensures a level floor surface owing to reduced shrinkage and warping.

 

Additionally, there is a rising inclination towards glulam window and door headers as they require no tools compared to building materials, like steel. Glue-laminated timber headers prevent the movement of the window or door frame, thereby minimizing wall cracks in window and door openings.
