Water Borne Chemicals will See an Increase in Demand:

Compared with oil borne and organic solvent borne segment, water borne chemicals are set to fare better as they have less VOC emissions and are thus, good for the environment. Besides, as copper borne preservative chemicals are much in demand, which are also water-borne, it looks like good news for this segment of the global wood preservative chemicals market. There is a rise in the demand for these preservatives from the developing economies. Organic solvent borne preservatives market would also report a steady growth.

The global wood preservative chemicals market will see an upward trajectory also because of technological advancements made in the field. Besides, the government and even the private sector is investing in infrastructure such as residential buildings, educational institutes and so on, generating more demand for wood and its ancillary industries.

Heavy Pockets to Drive Lifestyle Changes, Thus Impact Growth

Lifestyle change coupled with increased purchasing power is causing a massive tilt towards wooden interiors ((furniture, fixtures, etc.) globally, not just in homes but also at work places. And, wooden goods are expensive. So, as a consequence, consumers feel the need to protect the goods, which in turn is providing a boost to the wooden preservative chemicals market by generating a steady demand.

Stringent Government Regulations Pose a Challenge

One of the major restrains in the global wood preservative chemicals market is the limitations imposed on consumption due to low levels of awareness. Besides, in some countries/areas, environmental agencies/government has banned/restricted use of certain wood preservative chemicals such as CCA, creosote, and pentachlorophenol.

One such example is the use of oil borne preservative chemicals which are restricted in certain areas such as Europe and North America. It is important to note here that despite restraints, the outlook remains positive in the global wood preservative chemicals market.
