Decorative Laminates: Canada

This report forecasts to 2024 decorative laminate demand and production in square meters in Canada. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: low-pressure laminates and high-pressure laminates.

Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: cabinets; furniture; flooring; retail fixtures; wall panels; countertops; and other markets such as ceilings, signage, and window sills

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2009 to 2019; production and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2009, 2014, and 2019.

Edgebanding, as well as electrical, electronic, and other industrial laminates, is not included in this report.

Several assumptions have been made in order to ease understanding or to facilitate comparisons. For example, many decorative laminates are produced and sold in roll form to furniture producers or manufacturers, who then bond the laminate to a rigid substrate as part of the manufacturing process. This is frequently done with decorative foils and vinyl films. However, in the case of some decorative laminates, such as saturated papers, the laminates may be bonded to a substrate by the laminates producer and not by the customer due to the expense inherent in purchasing and operating the necessary machinery. So as not to skew the results (since some laminates are sold already bonded to a substrate and are therefore more expensive), all data treat laminates as unmounted.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
