In addition, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of 5.4% in the worldwide reclaimed lumber market. It is anticipated that rising demand for green building materials in emerging economies will favorably affect market expansion.

Due to the country’s extensive wood-based building industry and growing awareness of the need to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, China is expected to experience significant product demand. Due to its outstanding seismic performance, energy efficiency, and preservation of Chinese history, wooden construction has witnessed a recent boom in China.

Due to strong expansion and increased private investment in the construction industry, Europe dominated the market and generated over 40% of worldwide sales in 2021. Due to the region’s rapidly expanding residential market and rising product demand from established economies like Germany and the U.K., the regional market will rise further at a consistent CAGR from 2022 to 2030.
