In 2020, 16 particleboard production lines have been be completed and put into production in China, with an additional production capacity of 3.09 million cubic meters per year.

As of the end of 2020, 329 particleboard manufacturers across the country had 348 particleboard production lines distributed in 24 provinces (cities, districts), with a total production capacity of 36.91 million cubic meters per year, a decrease of 3.5% from the end of 2019, and the average single-line production capacity further has increased to 106,000 cubic meters per year.

The total production capacity of China’s particleboard has experienced rapid growth for four consecutive years and then has decreased slightly. Overall, the number of enterprises, the number of production lines, and the total production capacity have declined while the average single-line production capacity has increased.

In 2020, about 92 particleboard production lines have been shut down, dismantled or discontinued nationwide, and about 5.8 million cubic meters of outdated production capacity will be eliminated per year. As of the end of 2020, a total of 1,123 particleboard production lines have been shut down, dismantled, or discontinued nationwide, and about 27.72 million cubic meters of outdated production capacity has been eliminated per year.

As of the end of 2020, there are 73 continuous flat-pressed particleboard production lines in China, with a total production capacity of 17.63 million cubic meters per year, accounting for 47.8% of the country’s total particleboard production capacity, distributed in 17 provinces and regions. Among them, Shandong Province has 11 continuous flat pressing production lines, with a total production capacity of 2.59 million cubic meters per year, accounting for 35.0% of the province’s total particleboard production capacity; Guangxi District and Guangdong Province each have 8 continuous flat pressing production lines with respective production capacities reaching 2.28 million cubic meters per year and 1.94 million cubic meters per year, accounting for 70.2% and 52.0% of the province’s total particleboard production capacity respectively; Anhui Province has 7 continuous flat pressing production lines with a total production capacity of 1.95 million cubic meters per year , Accounting for 78.3% of the province’s total particleboard production capacity; Jiangsu Province, Hubei Province, Henan Province and Hebei Province all have 6 continuous flat pressing production lines, with production capacities reaching 1.6 million cubic meters per year, 1.5 million cubic meters per year, 1.48 million cubic meters per year and 1.27 million cubic meters per year, accounting for 52.6%, 77.7%, 66.0% and 37.8% of the total particleboard production capacity of the provinces.

Shandong Province’s production capacity further increased to 7.41 million cubic meters per year, continuing to rank first in the China; Guangdong and Hebei Provinces still ranked second and third despite their decline in production capacity; Guangxi’s production capacity increased to 3.25 million Cubic meters per year, the ranking surpasses Jiangsu Province and ranks fourth; Jiangsu Province ranks fifth in productivity decline; Anhui Province ranks sixth in productivity growth; Henan ranks seventh; Hubei Province ranks seventh The production capacity of Sichuan and Sichuan Province declined but the rankings remained eighth and ninth; the production capacity of Fujian Province surpassed Jiangxi Province to return to the top ten.

In 2020, 3 new oriented strand board (including fine-surface oriented strand board) production lines will be put into production nationwide, with a new production capacity of 850,000 cubic meters per year. As of the end of 2020, there were 26 oriented strand board production lines nationwide, with a total production capacity of 4.16 million cubic meters per year. The production capacity increased by 18.5% from the end of 2019, distributed in Shandong, Hubei, Guangxi, Anhui, Jiangsu, Guizhou, Yunnan, etc.7 Provinces.

At the beginning of 2021, there will be 25 particleboard production lines under construction nationwide, with a total production capacity of 6.75 million cubic meters per year. All seven regions (East China, South China, Central China, Southwest China, North China, Northeast China and Northwest China) The particleboard production lines under construction, including 18 continuous flat pressing production lines, with a total production capacity of 5.72 million cubic meters per year, accounting for 84.5% of the production capacity of particleboard under construction.

Among the production lines under construction, there are 7 oriented strand board (including fine-surface oriented strand board) production lines, with a total production capacity of 2.23 million cubic meters per year. They will be completed and put into production in 2021-2022. By then, the national oriented strand board production capacity will further increase. 50%, more than 6 million cubic meters per year.

The particleboard production line under construction will be put into operation successively from 2021 to 2022. It is estimated that the total particleboard production capacity of China will exceed 40 million cubic meters per year by the end of 2021.
