Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Fabricated Wood Manufacturing industry has suffered over the past five years due to weak demand from downstream construction industries and manufacturers. Industry revenue is estimated to fall at an annualised 4.4% over the five years through 2014-15. Falling demand for particleboard, medium-density fibreboard (MDF), timber veneers and plywood over this period has contributed to the industry's declining revenue and subsequent drops in domestic production. Industry operators are estimated to produce 1.5 million cubic metres of these products in 2014-15, down from 1.7 million cubic metres in 2009-10. Fabricated timber manufacturers have faced rising competition from import markets that can offer goods at lower prices... purchase to read more

These firms can therefore benefit from greater economies of scale, which decreases marginal costs and increases profitability. Automated processes and computerised manufacturing techniques allow wood products to be cut to exact user specification with reduced error rates. Depending on company size, skilled employees are required to operate machinery and equipment; supervise production; cut products to size; apply adhesives to wood veneers; and complete other managerial tasks... purchase to read more
