This Infographic gives a quick glance at the 5 emerging non-wood forestry-based feedstocks, their top supplier regions, applications, volume availability, and use cases.
Non-wood forestry products such as pineapple fiber, mushroom, hemp, banana, bamboo, cactus, and so on are in high demand due to their lower carbon footprint and high plant density per acre/hectare. Also, the cultivation period for these products is relatively short (1-3 years) when compared to conventional wood feedstocks, which can take 20-30 years. Rising demand for non-wood forestry products from industries such as textile, leather, automotive, construction, consumer goods, and others will boost the market potential of these products in the near future.
