Highland bamboo, Determinants,
Bamboo is an alternative construction material to substitute the declining supply of wood raw material in the construction sector and this study aimed to identify determinants for industrial uses of highland bamboo. The study was done in Injibara town and Addis Ababa city in Ethiopia; a snowballing sampling technique was used and both quantitative and qualitative data were collected from primary and secondary sources. Econometrics analysis showed that determinants such as working capital, lack of demand, lack of sufficient technologies, challenges in supply of bamboo, and training availability were significantly influenced the industrial uses of highland bamboo culms at 5% significance level.
