Wood shavings are the wood chips or sawdust produced by tools such as scrapers, widely used for animal bedding purposes. These are prepared with all types of wood; eucalyptus and pine are majorly preferred by pet owners. Branches of trees, remains of wood, stumps, and logs of wood are widely used for producing wood shavings. The wood shavings produced out of these kind of wood are preferred for bedding as they are free of iron, nails and other materials which may cause health issues to the animals. These beddings made out of wood shavings can be used for poultry to avoid direct contact of the bird with the floor, and also for pigs, and small animals such as rabbits, chinchillas and others. Bedding made from wood shavings are also used in sheltering cattle; they are used in rodeos, fairs, and exhibitions to cover the soil; in horticultural packaging; and for various other uses. Furthermore, these wood shavings are used for packaging which is one of the most commonly used method for transporting and protecting fragile products such as handicrafts, bottles, food, etc. Different types of wood shavings depending on the thickness of the chip, origin of the wood, and the length are used for various applications.

Wood shavings are moisture resistant and soft, comfortable, and body confirming material used for the animals to rest. The height and cushioning of the wood shavings ensures that the animals have a supporting and dry surface. These factors have encouraged animal owners to utilize wood shavings as bedding material, thus boosting the wood shavings market growth.

Furthermore, the ability of wood shavings to absorb odor and resist mold-causing moisture also encourages the animal owners to use wood shavings for bedding, leading to enhanced market growth. These wood shavings stay dry easily, ensuring that ants or mites do not disturb the pets in the bedding. Furthermore, wood shavings are also resistant to humidity, heat, or moisture which further makes them the ideal preference for animal bedding. However, wood shavings leave traces of dust or wood in the product which is considered as one of the factors expected to hamper the wood shavings market growth over the forecast period.

The global wood shavings market can be segmented based on material, flakes, animal, distribution channel, and region. Based on material, the wood shavings market is categorized into pine, timber, spruce scrap, Douglas fir, and others (cedar, etc.). The flakes are segregated into fine, small, medium, and large. The wood shavings can be obtained in various sizes from fine to extra–large; however, medium size flakes are majorly preferred by pet owners, contributing majorly to wood shavings market growth over the forecast period.

The animal segment is divided into horse, cattle, poultry, and others which include pigs and rabbits. Wood shavings are majorly used for horses as bedding, thus contributing to the market growth. The distribution channel is segregated into online and offline. Offline distribution channel is expected to acquire major share of the wood shavings market over the forecast period.
