NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The wood processing industry comprises establishments engaged in sawing dimension lumber, boards, beams, timbers, poles, ties, shingles, shakes, siding, and wood chips from logs or bolts. This industry also includes establishments engaged in treating planed, sawed and shaped wood with creosote or other preservatives such as alkaline copper quat, copper azole, and sodium borates, to prevent decay and to protect against fire and insects.
Asia was the largest region in the wood processing market in 2016, accounting for 50% market share. This can be attributed to a high demand for furniture products, fuelled by a large middle class population and rising disposable income in countries such as China and India. The Americas was the second largest region accounting for 27% market share. Europe was the third largest region accounting for 13% market share.
Robots are replacing traditional hand sanding and wood finishing tools. Robot based wood automation tool providers have launched robots that carry out wood sanding, polishing and finishing precisely and quickly. They are developing technologies for assembling a wooden window frame to routing designs in wood panels for a wide range of materials and surfaces. For instance, ABB's robot automation solutions were implemented in leading companies such as IKEA, VELUX and Svedplan.
