According to statistics on China’s fiberboard and particleboard production capacity in the first half of 2020 from Forestry Planning and Design Institute of the State Forestry and Grassland Administration (SFGA) and China National Forest Products Industry Association (CNFPIA), progress in construction of additional fiberboard and particleboard mills has slowed and there are fewer new mills under construction compared to last year.
China's fiberboard production capacity expanded after 2018 and the 2020 production capacity is forecast to reach 56 million cubic meters annually when current construction projects are completed.
Two new continuous flat-pressure fiberboard production lines are operational in Anhui Province with a total capacity of 420,000 cubic meters per year. Six new production lines with an annual production capacity of 1.74 million cubic meters are located in Guangxi, Shandong, Jiangsu and Jiangxi Provinces.
There are currently 32 fiberboard production lines under construction in China with a total output capacity of 6.51 million cubic meters per year. The fiberboard production lines under construction will come on line over the next 2 years.
