EPF believes that output increased again in 2014

22.04.2015 − 

Preliminary figures from the European Panel Federation (EPF), based in Brussels, indicate that European particleboard production rose by 3 % last year. A similar growth rate is thought to have been recorded for OSB. MDF/HDF production was unchanged at 2013’s level. The federation also thinks that hardboard manufacturing was also largely unchanged. Preliminary EPF figures show that wood-fibre insulating board output jumped 6 % compared with 2013. The reversal in fortunes seen for particleboard production last year after being in decline since 2010 also boosted overall wood-based panel production a little more than in 2013, according to preliminary statistics.
