Decorative Laminates

Growth in US manufacturing of cabinets, wall panels, and furniture that use engineered wood will provide opportunities for decorative laminates. Advances in building construction activity and greater credit availability are driving demand for such building components and similar products, while low domestic energy costs and rising wages in traditionally low wage countries are allowing US-manufactured goods to be more cost-competitive with imports.

According to Decorative Laminates, a study from Freedonia Group, decorative laminates offer a competitive edge over surfacing materials such as wood veneers and coatings. Laminates are valued for their ability to offer good durability in surface protection at a relatively low cost. However, in certain applications, laminates will face increased competitive pressures from relatively new products. In cabinets, for example, laminates are facing challenges from acrylic veneers in high value, high gloss applications.

Low pressure laminates will benefit from cabinet, store fixture markets

Freedonia projects, among decorative laminates, advances for low-pressure types will be driven by their significant usage in the large cabinets and store fixtures markets, where the cost advantages of these products outweigh the durability benefits of higher priced high-pressure laminates. Low-pressure laminates, which account for 80 percent of the market, will also benefit from strong growth in the manufacture of cabinets and improved performance characteristics. Thermoplastic films, in particular, can be more easily applied to substrates with raised panels (as in cabinet doors) and curved edges (as in store fixtures or furniture), while saturated papers are finding greater use due to their ability to provide a high gloss appearance at a low cost.

High-pressure laminate sales strong

Sales of high-pressure laminates will continue to depend on their advanced performance characteristics, such as long-term durability and greater resistance to scratches. In particular, high-pressure laminates will continue to find use in applications where durability is required, in addition to high gloss. The stability and design flexibility of compact laminates over standard varieties of high-pressure laminates will provide opportunities for compact laminate in store fixtures and other commercial applications.

Cabinets, furniture still top markets

Cabinets and furniture were the two largest markets for laminates in 2015, together accounting for nearly half of demand. Through 2020, the cabinet market is projected to post the more rapid gains. Increases in the number of new homes built through 2020 will provide opportunities, since many of these new homes include stock cabinets, which are often made using saturated paper and other low-pressure laminates on an engineered wood substrate. The much smaller flooring market will also achieve above average annual gains.
