Indian Particle Board industry is ready to add further production capacity withing next 2 years. As number of wood and decorative panel manufacturing companies have been working on cost, investment, license and market growth, many new entrants are eager to join the growth run. Besides, big laminates companies like Merino, Greenlam there are a few others who are aiming for above 500 cbm plants.

A dozen of companies too are working on small size manufacturing plants with nearly 200 to 300 cbm capacity. We are witnessing, many wood panel and plywood companies are acquiring big size land of above 20 acre, and weighing the feasibility of related projects. Once international travel starts, India might add around 2500 to 3000 cbm / day Particle Boards Manufacturing capacity in next two years.

Will there be enough sustainable margins once market gets crowded? Such questions should not be ignored. Maintaining profitability, procuring timber and stable chemical prices remain a challenge for wood panel sector in India. This quarter sales show a significant drop in profitability of PB industry, with a fact that industry is running at its 60% capacity. Concluding the present scenario, the Indian PB capacity addition is a fact but its sustainability remains a question mark!

The June 2021 issue is delayed by 2 weeks as lockdown impacted our dispatches and we regret the inconvenience! The issue is packed with a lot of news reports, current affairs, and financial reports of some leading brands, market scenario post second wave, products launch, and many more related to Plywood, Laminates, Particle Boards, MDF, Timber, Doors, etc. The highlights and significant views have been excerpted from the interactions with industry and trade leaders during the second wave at Ply Reporter’s E-conclaves. The details of product launches and innovations from the house of Greenply, Amulya Mica, Ozone Hardware and Ambica Hydraulics would refresh your memories.  With the unlocking process the demand has been improving and would be on track from July onward. Be safe, get a vaccine!
