After a long period of development and innovation, China’s bamboo industry has an unprecedented scale and excellent technical strength, and the level of craftsmanship is world-class. It is understood that the bamboo industry has become one of the emerging pillar industries in bamboo-producing areas. Together with the flower industry, forest tourism, and forest food industry, it is also known as the four major sunrise industries in China’s forestry industry.
Bamboo is favored for its environmental protection and practical performance
As early as ancient times, bamboo has become a natural raw material commonly used by people.
In recent years, due to the continuous shortage of wood supply, the strategic value of bamboo has been raised to a new level, and the use of bamboo products has become more and more widespread.
Today, the “bamboo element” has penetrated into all aspects of our lives. We can see different kinds of bamboo raw materials and all kinds of mature bamboo products at any time and anywhere. Bamboo products have also become An indispensable product category in the consumer market.
The key to why bamboo and bamboo products are so popular and enduring is their abundant reserves and unique advantages, such as fast growth, sturdiness and durability, beautiful and environmentally friendly, diverse uses, and so on. Generally speaking, bamboo and its products mainly have several characteristics:
First, bamboo has the advantages of tensile, compressive, and bending strength.
People can use bamboo to make a variety of living utensils, such as bamboo baskets, bamboo baskets, bamboo stools, bamboo beds and even bamboo houses. These products are widely used in people’s lives.
It is worth mentioning that bamboo is called “plant steel”, and if the technology passes the test, it can withstand a weight of more than 10 tons. Such bamboo can be used to build domes and other building parts. In 1991, a magnitude 7.7 earthquake occurred in Costa Rica. A large number of brick and reinforced concrete buildings collapsed, but more than 20 bamboo-built buildings were unharmed.
The second is economical and environmentally friendly.
Bamboo is a herbaceous plant and one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Bamboo can be used for three to four years. It can regenerate quickly after being felled, and it can absorb four times the carbon dioxide of ordinary trees. Due to the characteristics of rapid recycling, bamboo has huge reserves and low cost, which is undoubtedly a high-quality green alternative resource for the continuous deterioration of the natural environment, especially for my country where the natural forest coverage rate is less than 20%.
In actual life, people who advocate “green decoration” often use these high-quality, inexpensive, natural-textured, and fine-textured bamboo and bamboo products as the first-choice materials for decoration.
Seize the market opportunity
The prosperity of the bamboo industry and the sales of bamboo products directly drive the sales of bamboo raw materials. In the first half of 2008, the market for bamboo skin and bamboo materials continued to boom, and the sales of bamboo raw materials continued to flourish.
Bamboo material has many advantages such as: uniform material, large-format material supply and easy processing, various mechanical properties (compression resistance, tensile resistance, bending resistance, shrinkage resistance) are better than wood; environmental protection and sustainable development (for timber The glue is lower than the E1 international standard, and the raw material used-bamboo can be used in five to six years).
Because of its natural environmental protection and sustainable development properties, it is being loved by more and more people.
Professionals pointed out that the development of bamboo is far from exhausted, no matter from the perspective of processing technology or from the perspective of resource development. In addition, bamboo has a short growth cycle and a relatively high survival rate. It can increase its biomass by 30% every year. As long as relevant institutions and enterprises pay attention to bamboo development, invest funds, and introduce new processing techniques, the development potential of the bamboo industry is immeasurable.
Especially under the premise that the global timber resources are increasingly scarce, the use of bamboo is not only a fashionable phenomenon, it will become a development trend.
