Plywood finds prominent end uses in new construction and rehabilitation. The new construction accounted for the major share of the plywood market in 2021. Construction is the world's largest industry, accounting for 13% of the global GDP. It comprises real estate, infrastructure, and industrial structures. From spectacular skylines and massive infrastructure to continual innovation, construction is responsible for a wide spectrum of spectacular achievements. However, in the past couple of decades, it also has been plagued by dismal performance. Over the last two decades, annual productivity growth has been just a third of overall GDP norms. Risk aversion, complexity, and difficulty in obtaining digital talent all stifle innovation. In almost every other industry, digitalization is lower. Despite significant risks and numerous insolvencies, profitability is poor, with an EBIT margin of roughly 5%. Regular time and budget overruns, as well as long claims procedures, impede customer satisfaction. These positive factors are expected to drive the use of plywood in the near future.
