Surface Planer Market: Overview and Dynamics
A surface planer is a heavy duty machinery which ensures edge of the wooden boards are straight and square which can then be attached together for making a much larger board. Surface planer is also known as jointer and is generally used in wood surfacing to start the process of surfacing the wood by making one edge flat and side square for further use. The cutter head of the surface planer is put directly into the bed surface to ensure smoothness and designated thickness of the wood.
Moreover, surface planer posits several advantages like these provide much easier squaring of edges than when compared with hand squaring. Surface planer offers the quickest way to remove twisting & warping and proffers fully adjustable modes to ensure changes in angle of cut to cater the needs of the user. Further, surface planers are less expensive than thickness planers which provides competitive advantage over for surface planer market over the same.
However, surface planers do come with affair bit of negatives which is significantly affecting the surface planers market as a whole. Surface planers cannot guarantee reliable thickness throughout the board and leaves rough faces bon the surface. These are then treated with thickness planers which posits a significant threat to the surface planer market
In addition, a surface planer is used to even the warped pieces of wood into a linear wood board. Further, surface planers work are limited when it comes to surfacing process with alternative like thickness planers can come handy. Comparison of thickness planers and surface planers is mentioned below
- Surface planer is used to flatten one side and square one edge, while thickness planers are used to ensure there is consistent and creates parallel surfaces
- Surface planers can surface the board to similar thickness, whereas thickness planers can make sure that wooden boards have same thickness throughout the board
- Surface planers with their knives cut from below whilst thickness planers cut from above
- Surface planers are less expensive than thickness planers
Moreover, this makes the use of surface planer as a critical component of wood surfacing with the surface planer market expected to witness sinewy growth over the forecast period. This is attributed to the recent advancements in technologies of making surface planer in a joint combo with thickness planer which further ensures all tasks to be done with one single machine.
The global surface planer market is bifurcated into 3 key segments: product type, planer type, application, and region. Based on product type surface planer can be segregated into closed stand, open stand, benchtop, tabletop. Based on the planer type the surface planer market can be segregated into manual surface planer, and electric surface planers. Based on application the surface planer market can be classified as jobsite, workshops and others.
COVID-19 Impact Insights
The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is a name which will spook the industrial manufacturers for the years to come. Not due to the new normal which is implemented but because of the daunting reminisces of lockdowns. Lockdowns which were globally implemented to curb the spread of coronavirus have had adverse effects on the industries which have forced the industries to rethink their strategies.
During the unprecedented times of COVID lockdowns, industrialists were forced to shut their factories, global supply chains were halted and the world as whole came to standstill. As a result, the supply side was adversely affected and created a huge gap between supply and demand. As the industrial manufacturing jobs are almost on-site and cannot be carried out remotely this has affected the manufacturing capabilities of the industry due to financial impacts which lockdown has created as result of which companies went on firing spree to cut down their losses.
The pandemic has created a global recession responding to which industries are now cutting down on their production capacities which is enabling the shortage of goods from industries. However, on the brighter side, the coronavirus has taught companies a lesson to never forget that is diversification. Similarly, surface planer market which is dependent on workshops and onsite working faced immense downfall in the market owing to the pandemic.
On the bright side, vaccines are being approved after phase 3 trials by countries and have started vaccination drives for neutralizing covid-19 cases. Meanwhile for balancing the supply chain, regulatory bodies have allowed manufacturing sectors to proceed with production. Moreover, abiding to COVID-19 guidelines and alternative rotation of workers can help the global surface planer market to bounce back strongly by the second quarter of 2021.
