The global I-joist market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global I-joist market to reach a value of US$ 2.89 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.60% during 2021-2026. The significant growth of the construction and real estate sectors represent the primary factor escalating the demand for I-joist. It is used in wall studs and roof rafters, as well as for installing flooring and roof framing, due to its lightweight yet resilient properties. It also offers improved strength and stiffness with an enhanced aesthetic appearance and flexibility. This is based on its high strength-to-weight ratio, which helps carry heavy loads over long spans and structures. It also shrinks or swells less than solid wood when the ambient conditions such as the temperature, humidity and air pressure change. Apart from this, it provides more options for designing economical floor joist layouts while being easy to install.
