Embodied carbon and market share of cabinets / interior finishes

Hi all,

I’m trying to do a quick estimate on the embodied carbon impacts of interior finishes like cabinets, and carbon savings of alternatives. Does anyone happen to have a good resource on how the cabinet market is split up, by material? As in, what percentage of cabinet production or procurement is hardwood versus MDF, etc.?

Some starting points that have been helpful:

  • The USFS/USDA indicates that 13 million board feet of wood was used for cabinets but no further breakdown.
  • The Healthier Materials Lab provided a helpful overview on different compositions of products, which was a great starting point.
