The main types of formulations in the wood preservatives market are water based, solvent based, oil based.Water based preservatives are widely used for fence posts, lumber, plywood, poles, pilings, and timbers that prevents fungal decay and insect attack.

Solvent based preservatives is composed of approximately 10% active ingredient and 90% organic solvent, which are usually white spirit or other petroleum based hydrocarbons.Oil based or oil borne preservatives are generally insoluble in water, so they are dissolved in petroleum or other organic solvents to penetrate the wood.

These are used by various sectors including residential, commercial, and industrial. Wood preservatives are used in cabinets and decks, doors & windows, wood flooring, railroad ties, and others.

Major players operating in the wood preservatives market are continuously investing in research and development (R&D) activities to manufacture eco-friendly wood preservatives which is a key trend in the wood preservatives market.Considering the environmental rules and regulations, the wood preservatives manufacturers are developing natural or eco-friendly wood preservatives so that they will be less harmful to the environment.

For instance, UltraPole NXT, developed by Viance, was awarded with R&D 100 2020 Award for its sustainable solution.The active ingredient DCOI (4,5-Dichloro-2-n-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one) does its job as a highly effective wood preservative.

DCOI that enters the environment degrades rapidly.Further, in March 2019, LANXESS launched Levanyl X ranges, aqueous, solvent-free, and organic pigment that can be used in wood preservatives.

Similarly, the companies such as Troy, Janssen Pharmaceutica, Koppers are developing wood preservatives that can be eco-friendly for the environment.

In February 2020, LANXESS, a Germany-based specialty chemicals company, acquired Itibanyl Produtos Especiais Ltda. (IPEL) for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition will strengthen LANXESS’s position in antimicrobial active ingredients and formulations. The product portfolio of IPEL also includes preservatives and fungicides for process control in water treatment as well as active ingredients for disinfection and cleaning agents. Itibanyl Produtos Especiais Ltda. (IPEL) is a Brazil-based manufacturer and producer of agriculture chemicals.

Increasing demand for wood in various applications is expected to drive the market growth of wood preservatives during the forecast period.Due to the increase in population and industrialization, the demand for wood products is growing across the globe.
