Fiberboard: MDF, Hardboard, & Softboard

Fiberboard: MDF, Hardboard, & Softboard

This study analyzes US demand for fiberboard by type and market (construction and industrial. Demand is also presented by major US region (Northeast, Midwest, South, and West).

Product segments include:
 hardboard, or high density fiberboard (HDF)
 medium density fiberboard (MDF)
 softboard, or low density fiberboard (LDF)

Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for 2024 and 2029 are presented for fiberboard demand in current US dollars (including inflation) and in square feet.

This report is part of a series of studies available on the wood panels market and is targeted at customers with a specific interest in fiberboard. A broader perspective on competition among various wood panel products can be found in our comprehensive report Wood Panels.

Please note: The report will take approximately 2-3 business days to deliver.
