Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Fabricated Wood Manufacturing industry has suffered over the past five years due to declining demand from downstream housing construction companies and manufacturers. Industry revenue is expected to fall at an annualised 0.6% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $1.4 billion. Slight declines in the production of particleboard, medium-density fibreboard (MDF), timber veneers and plywood are anticipated over this period and are expected to contribute to the industry's declining revenue. Industry operators are expected to produce 1.46 million cubic metres of these products in 2016-17, down from 1.49 million cubic metres in 2011-12.
