The global woodworking machinery market size was valued at USD 4.72 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 4.86 billion in 2023 to USD 6.80 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period.

Woodworking machinery processes raw wood materials into several products such as beams, plywood, and boards, for structural applications across furniture, shipbuilding, and others. The increasing adoption of automated woodworking machines and precise engineering in manufacturing processes is expected to drive market growth. These machines are flexible for the users in the entire production lifecycle of wood products.

The usage of prefabricated wooden houses is a growing trend in the market. Manufacturers across countries are majorly emphasizing Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) to develop wooden houses. It is gaining popularity across the U.S., Italy, Austria, France, and other countries. Additionally, the changing lifestyle and the high demand for customized wooden products will likely drive market growth.


Interrupted Supply Chain and COVID-19 related Restrictions Hampered the Manufacturing Processes

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted every woodworking industry, manufacturing, and retail aspect. A survey conducted by the Wood Component Manufacturers Association (WCMA) stated that the pandemic's impact would be long-term, and the manufacturers should explore new product options. The most reported problems included interruptions in the supply chain, border closings, and increased border controls, the decline in domestic and foreign demand, and retail closings.

The North American woodworking industry consisting of manufacturers and retail services faced serious impacts, with nearly 3% of manufacturers believing in a permanent business shutdown. Moreover, Acimall, the Italian Woodworking Technology Association, stated that the first quarter of 2020 showed a widespread reduction of machinery orders with a double-digit decrease across every emerging and established international markets.

The U.K. timber importers halted orders due to supply chain disruption. Owing to this, the timber and wood trading market is at the lowest level in European countries. Considering these points, it was projected that the global market will observe a considerable downfall till the first half of 2021. However, wood, timber institutions, and government actions to support the industry will be critical in the future ahead.

Accelerated Utilization of Prefabricated Wooden Houses to Propel Market Growth

The utilization of prefabricated wooden houses is a growing trend in the woodworking industry as the timber material helps in less emission of CO2, thus, providing energy-efficient nature compliant with environmental regulations. Prefabricated wooden houses reduce material usage and increase production efficiency. Considering this point, several manufacturers across Germany, the U.S., the U.K., and Finland actively offer prefabricated wood houses such as bungalows, and garages.

India has been witnessing strong economic development in the construction industry. This is expected to contribute to the global market growth in the forthcoming years.


Increasing Adoption of Precise Engineering to Aid Market Growth

In the past few years, a mixed alternative approach, i.e., using CNC machines to aim for the highest precision in manufacturing superior quality wood products, has increased the woodworking machinery market share. Manufacturers such as Gongyou Group Co., Ltd., and IMA Schelling Group GmbH offer cut-to-size, precision saws and panel saw series for wooden materials. Additionally, the manufacturers emphasize the advancement due to the customized requirements of wooden products across public and private end-users.

For instance, in 2019, Biesse Group started to automate 5-axis heads, a woodworking machine in its production line, to reduce travel time and increase the machine precision on assembly lines. The rising consumer disposable income across Brazil, Mexico, India, and China also supports market growth. Therefore, the increasing adoption of precision engineering across the woodworking industry will likely boost the market growth.


Health Hazards in Machinery Manufacturing Units are Hampering the Market Growth

Woodworking machinery utilized in production is hazardous when handled improperly. Hence, health and safety cannot be ignored across production facilities. Health hazards such as exposure to unguarded machinery, wood dust, noise, toxic finishes, and non-ergonomic handling negatively impact the health of the workers, leading to serious concerns.

Woodworking machinery operations that consist of table saw, circular saw, and planer operations hold the worst safety records for workers, according to the U.K. Health and Safety Executive (HSE), approximately 35% of accidents that occur involve circular or table saws. These factors are hampering the market growth.
