In the past 40 years of reform and opening up, the rapid development of China’s economy has attracted worldwide attention and become a miracle in the world economic history. China’s wood-based panel industry has obtained unprecedented development opportunities in the national reform and opening up. Over the past 40 years, China’s wood-based panel industry has moved from a planned economy to a market economy, experiencing a fundamental transformation from a traditional processing industry to a modern industry, from a small one to a large one, from a weak one to a strong one, expanding the scale of enterprises, increasing the types of products, improving the level of technical equipment and product quality, and achieving the comprehensive utilization of both resources and markets at home and abroad. China has become the world’s largest wood-based panel production, consumption and international trade country.
Today, China’s wood-based panel industry has formed an industrial structure with large enterprises as the leader and small and medium-sized enterprises as the main body. It has initially established a production system dominated by traditional products such as plywood, fiberboard and particleboard, with excellent technology and equipment, stable workforce, complete product specifications and mature sales market, which can basically meet the needs of national economic development and people’s lives. The international market demand has become an important industry of our national economy.
