The world of edgebanding is witnessing a fascinating transformation, marked by innovation, sustainable practices, and an emphasis on quality materials. In this month’s blog, we delve further into the market trends that we expect to shape 2024 and how we at Teknaform™ are prepared to meet these evolving needs.
Customers investing in quality materials for their homes and workspaces are making a significant impact on edgebanding aesthetics this year. However, with prices on natural materials continuing to escalate, the demand for cost-efficient alternatives that authentically replicate high-end aesthetics has surged. Overall, the industry has seen a growth in 1mm edgebanding which helps achieve the monolith natural stone and hardwood panel look that our customers desire. This trend is expected to continue well into 2024 with edgebanding solutions that impeccably mirror the richness of marbles, granites, and hardwood patterns providing this upscale result at a fraction of the price.
Beyond aesthetics, edgebanding is evolving to offer enhanced functionalities. Anti-fingerprint surfaces and improved durability are becoming standard features in edgebanding solutions. And it doesn’t stop there. More and more manufacturers are exploring eco-friendly options that align with growing eco-conscious consumer preferences.
“As we explore the transformative trends shaping 2024, Teknaform™ stands poised to navigate these changes with unwavering readiness,” says Stephen Booth, Teknaform™ President. “We remain dedicated to meeting evolving customer demands.

In a world increasingly conscious of environmental impact, sustainable materials have emerged as a prominent focus in edgebanding. Booth adds: “Shopping consciously, from material sourcing to delivery, is no longer a trend but an integral part of the design conversation.”
