Timber Frames Market: Overview
Timber frame houses or wooden houses have attracted people due to their highly aesthetic appearance and relatively low cost of manufacturing as compared to the construction cost associated with traditional brick and cement buildings. The demand for timber frames is highly concentrated in the North America region, along with some parts of Europe. Various wood treatments and laminations have extended the life of timber frames and enhancing the durability of the timber frames against physical impact and rough weather conditions. The timber frames market in a region is majorly characterised by the sufficient availability of treated timber logs and timber frames, cost of land as well as weather conditions.
Timber Frames Market: Dynamics
Timber frame houses are majorly preferred in the geographies characterised by heavy icefall due to the slope of the terrace, which reduces the collection of ice on the roof. Moreover, since wood is a good temperature insulator, the temperature of timber frame buildings is significantly higher than the temperature of the surroundings. Japan is highly prone to earthquakes, and the destruction caused to the traditional brick and cement buildings can be highly hazardous as compared to the destruction caused to timber frame buildings. Timber frame buildings take much lesser time and capital investment for construction as compared to that of traditional buildings, which is driving the timber frames market across the globe.
On the other hand, timber frames cannot be used for the construction of very tall buildings due to low load-carrying capacity and the limited width of the trusses. Moreover, a rapid increase in the global population and urbanisation have resulted in a gradual decrease in green land, which is expected to lead to harmful effects on nature. This has led to the framing of several legislative regulations associated with the cutting of wood across the globe, which is limiting the availability of woods for the manufacturing of timber frames. These are some of the factors restraining the global market for timber frames. Half-timbering is one of the prominent practices in the timber frames market. Half-timbering is the construction of timber frame buildings with timber frames filled with some different material such as wattle & daub, bricks and stones. The in-filling of timber frames not only enhances the load-carrying capacity of the timber frame buildings, but also increases their temperature insulation.

Timber Frames Market: Regional Outlook
Timber frame houses are highly preferred in the North America region due to significant icefall in the region throughout the year. Along with North America, the countries of Western Europe and parts of Russia with considerable proximity to the North Pole witness high icefall and low atmospheric temperature through the year. These geographies are the prominent markets for timber frames. Moreover, high availability of green fields in the Latin America and the Asia Pacific region have resulted into low costs associated with the manufacturing of timber frames. Moreover, the aesthetic appeal of timber frame buildings has resulted in the significant demand for timber frames in the region.
