Excerpt from Current Status and Future of Structural Panels in the Wood Products Industry

For decades, plywood has been the dominant structural panel in U.S. light frame construction markets. In recent years, however, its status has been threatened by new generations of replacement products.

This report analyzes the causes which have led to these new product introductions. Key variables affecting future success of the new panels and plywood's vulnerability are analyzed. The role of product performance in establishing markets via building code approvals is discussed and a summary of current code approvals in the industry is assembled. Potential new markets available to the replacement panel types are described.

On the basis of technological, economic, political, and market arguments, a forecast for the future of the U.S. structural panels business is presented as it was reported in 1981. More recent data are used to update and check the model.

One of the most highly fragmented and decentralized industries in the United States is that of building construction. This is particularly true for the construction technique which is most often applied to the activity of building residences- known as light frame construction. The decentralization and fragmentation inherent to this branch of the construction industry historically has created roadblocks to innovation both in construction systems and in the materials and components which provide the ingredients to those systems. The problems of innovation are in large part problems associated with making more sophisticated an activity which by its very nature is required to take place a numerous decentralized sites.

Arthur D. Little [1] has viewed the fragmentation in the light-frame construction industry as occurring on two levels. First, the industry is made up of thousands of relatively small companies (although trends over the last decade have been toward some consolidation of construction contractors).
