The Asia-Pacific region is expected to remain the dominant market for veneer sheets over the forecast period. The growing demand for wood products spurred by increasing urbanization and infrastructure development in China and India is the major factor driving the growth of the market. In addition, the presence of a large number of manufacturers in the region makes it easy for buyers to find suppliers, which is another factor stimulating market expansion.

The market is segmented into interior and exterior applications. The interior applications segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. Veneer sheets are widely used in furniture, wall paneling, cabinets, and doors.
