A Depiction of the Rice Husk-To-Particle Board Market

Rice hulls are the term for the dense protective coverings that shield rice grains (or rice husks). The construction business is one of the industries in India that is growing the fastest. Due to rapid construction and rising housing demand, traditional building materials are in short supply. Currently, explosives include sand, cement, bricks, and wood. Wood or wood-based composite boards are still a popular choice for construction because of their low cost and superior strength and light weight.

Agricultural waste or residue is made up of organic compounds derived from organic resources such as rice straw, empty fruit bunches from oil palm trees, sugar cane bagasse, coconut shell, and others. Paddy rice husk is one example of a substitute material that might be used to produce particle board (Oryza sativa). In addition to having a very wide outer surface area, rice husk has a very high ash concentration that ranges from 92 to 95 percent silica. Additionally, it is lightweight and very permeable. Its absorbent and insulating properties are advantageous for a variety of industrial uses, including as a strengthening agent in building materials.

Applications & Uses This board's properties can be managed. Improved acoustic qualities translate into better sound absorption. It prevents combustion, making it a good safety measure and safe for use. It is resistant to termites and insects. It can resist water. It is more cost-effective. It is employed in the production of furniture where cost effectiveness is crucial.

Sales of particle board and plywood are estimated to be worth about Rs 37 billion in India. A quarter of the market is made up of particle board, which includes medium density fiber board (MDF board). About 85% of the particle board is produced by the organized sector. Western India has taken the top rank in the market for particle board.

Agricultural waste alternatives including cotton and wheat stalks, rice husk, and bagasse are gradually making their way into the business as raw material feeds. The top competitors in the approximately 60-unit organised industry of plywoods and particle boards continue to be Kitply Industries, Sarda Plywood, Century Plywood, Novapan, National Plywood, Green-ply, and Jayshree Tea.

These are a few of the major players: Archidply Industries Ltd. In addition to Bajaj Eco-Tec Products Ltd., Bajaj Hindustan Ltd. Kitply Industries Ltd., Novopan Industries Ltd., Ecoboard Industries Ltd., Feroke Boards Ltd., Genus Paper Products Ltd. Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Ltd., Nuboard Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Rushil Decor Ltd. Shirdi Industries Ltd. Western India Plywoods Ltd

Nations that farm rice encounter enormous difficulties in disposing of rice husk waste since burning it poses a serious environmental risk. The Indian Plywood Industries Research Institute in Bangalore invented the technology for making rice husk particle board, which has emerged as one of the greatest solutions to this issue because it helps to conserve the eco-system and maintain the Eco balance. India and several other nations that produce rice have filed for patents.

Particle boards are rapidly gaining ground as more cost-effective substitutes for conventional board materials including plywood, block boards, and even sawn lumber. Over the next few years, it is predicted that this trend will only increase as materials like plywood, blackboards, and hardwood become more difficult to get and more expensive. As pressure on the limited forest resources mounted, so would demand for regenerated wood products, such as particle boards, which are often created from waste from forest management. In contrast, prime grade logs are needed for block boards, plywood, and sawn wood.

India is undergoing a rapid phase of urbanization similar to other emerging markets, with a change in lifestyles, a growing demand for engineered wood and agro-based panel products, and a high infrastructure. According to industry sources, wood and agro-based products like plywood, particleboard, medium density fiberboard, oriented-strand board, and laminated facade lumber are expected to see positive growth in the near future. Therefore, the product has a promising future.
