The Europe Oriented Strand Board Market would witness market growth of 4.6% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).
OSB is made from tiny trees with fast and organic growth. Lodgepole pine logs of approximately 20 to 24 inches in radius at the breast height are used largely in inland mills on the West Coast that produce OSB. Pine plantation thinning, Southern Pine, and soft hardwoods types, like aspen with an average DBH of 8 inches, are used in mills in the South. Prior to strand production, short portions of the logs are rinsed and debarked using disc or ring-type flakes. Depending on the type of procedure and raw material, strand size is typically 0.5 inches by 3 inches by 0.02 inches. The size of the filaments can be changed depending on the panel’s target parameters. The strands are dried to 5 to 10% moisture in massive, rotating single-pass or triple-pass dryers with intake temperatures as high as 1,250oF, because their moisture content fluctuates from 40 to 75%.
Using varying screen sizes, dried strands are divided into two pieces. The face layers are made up of larger strands, whereas the core layer is made up of smaller strands. In a rotating drum blender, the face and core layer filaments are combined separately with an outer binder. During the blending process, a particular percentage of wax, as well as other chemicals, may be applied, depending on the method.
There are various developed and developing countries across this region. According to the Export.gov, Germany’s economy is the fifth-largest economy in the world, accounting for one-fifth of the overall European Union’s GDP.

This factor is propelling the urbanization process across the region.
In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has imposed a regulation to minimize hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from large sources, such as existing and new plywood as well as composite wood products factories. This rule is a National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), and it significantly reduced HAP emissions by mandating affected composite wood and plywood products facilities to achieve a level of emissions reductions needed to meet the MACT (Minimum Achievable Control Technology) floor for these sources.
