CLT is widely used in various applications such as residential, commercial, institutional, and other segments. The intrinsic properties of CLT such as high thermal performance, sound insulation, earthquake resistance, fire resistance, lightweight, durability, and low manufacturing costs are anticipated to promote the product demand, thereby driving the market growth.

CLT panels are light in weight, which, in turn, may increase the number of stories in the building, providing a better return on investment. The overall weight of the building is low, which provides ease of construction and enables faster construction as compared to steel and other concretes. The majority of the construction companies are adopting the use of CLT in building constructions.

Most of the players are actively involved in R&D to improve the strength, seismic, and fire performance of CLT so it can be an effective replacement for the concrete material. The top players in the market have adopted sustainable solutions by sourcing the wood to produce cross laminated timber from carefully managed sustainable forests keeping in mind the long-term benefits and prevailing regulatory rules.
