Overview of the Global Wood Preservation Chemicals Market
Though the global wood preservation chemicals market will experience healthy growth till 2018 due to the expanding construction industry, it will be restrained by the unfavorable regulatory scenario. Worldwide, the preference for green products and technologies is growing. This trend will reduce the popularity of chemicals used for wood preservation.
Pentachlorophenol used to be one of the most widely used biocides in the U.S., before regulatory actions led to cancellation and restriction of specific non-wood-preservative uses of this chemical in 1987. The EPA has enforced strict regulatory control over the use of many other wood preservation chemicals. Other types of wood preservatives are chromated copper arsenate (CCA), creosote, and acid copper chromate (ACC). To turn this challenge into an opportunity, companies in the global wood preservation chemicals market are focusing on developing safer and more natural wood preservatives.
Decking, fencing, and railroad products are major end users of wood preservative chemicals. Further, the rising demand from the application sector of landscape products will also bolster the global wood preservation chemicals market.
