Global Thermally Modified Wood Market: Overview
Numerous research and development activities have been undertaken in the wood production and wood plastic market. Development activities have increased due to the concerns about wood preservatives and illegal logging of wood in tropical regions. Moreover, the reduced availability of several tropical species and higher prices of tropical timber have fueled the demand for modification techniques in the wood market. Thermally modified wood market can be defined as a wood which is modified by a controlled pyrolysis process.
In this process, the wood is heated up to 180°Celcius, in the absence of oxygen. This process helps the chemical to change its cell structure of cell wall components in the wood in order to increase its durability. During this process, the low oxygen content prevents the wood from burning even at the high temperature. The wood can be thermally modified by using five thermal modification processes.
Thermowood, retification process, les bois perdure, Plato process, and oil heat treatment. The thermally modified wood market, refers to heat-treated wood, has expanded considerably growth over the last decade. Thermal modification is a highly successful process as compared to other wood modification methods. Initially, the thermal wood modification process was considered as an alternative treatment to chemical preservative. Most of the thermal modification capacity in Europe are involved in treating softwoods. Modified softwoods are mostly utilized in the siding and decking industry, where durability and stability matters. Some manufacturers have diversified their product lines into other areas such as wall panel moldings and furniture.
Global Thermally Modified Wood Market: Drivers and Restraints
The demand for thermal wood has already been high in the global Thermally Modified Wood Market. Companies are investing more in research and development of thermally modified wood. For example The Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, U.S., has a pilot-scale kiln to research the effectiveness of thermal modification on underutilized Minnesota tree species to expand the thermally modified wood markets. Due to the high temperatures, 180 – 220°C, it is used in most of the processes and the chemical structure of the wood components are altered after heating the wood. Thermally modified wood market has altered biological and physical properties.

Thermally modified wood market possess higher resistant against basidiomycetes and soft rot fungi, and has a lower equilibrium moisture content and fiber saturation point. Consequently, its dimensional stability is improved. However, some strength properties are greatly decreased due to the increased brittleness of the wood. Thermally-treated wood is currently utilized in several indoor and outdoor applications in Europe, due to its enhanced durability, dimensional stability, and good appearance.
Global Thermally Modified Wood Market: Key Segments
Based on application, the global thermally modified wood market can be classified into building and construction, furniture, siding and decking industry, and others. Thermally modified wood market is majorly utilized in building and construction. Appearance, durability, and dimensional stability are important properties that prompt architects, builders, and homeowners to use thermally modified wood in the construction of houses and buildings. Thermally modified wood market is also employed in decking and siding. It provides royal texture, color, consistency, grade, stability, and durability to the siding.
