The Philippines is one of the largest plywood markets in the world. Situated in the western Pacific Ocean, it consists of about 7641 tropical islands. As of 2015, the Philippines already had a population of at least 100 million. The fast-growing population drove up the demand for marine plywood used in the house construction of the Pinoy families.
The Philippines also has a marine boat industry that has a huge demand for premium marine plywood in their manufacturing. It has the most advanced shopping malls in South East Asia.
The plywood consumption is so huge that local plywood manufacturers in the Philippines can not meet the demand. There is a lot of plywood imported from China, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
