the global Wood Plastic composite market size was valued at USD 4.06 Billion in 2015. Rising application scope in decking and fencing applications is expected to drive demand for the product in the construction industry. Growing demand for wood plastic composite as a low cost and environment-friendly substitute to plastic and steel components in construction applications is expected to drive the market growth. Better recyclability, thermal stability, and stiffness offered by the wood
Much like their touted material properties, wood plastic composite (wpc) product lines are showing resilience in the face of the worst economic downturn in recent memory. Although growth in U.S. demand for decking of all types (decking accounts for about two-thirds of the wpc market) is expected to decline from 2.2 percent to about 1 percent annually through 2013, according to the Freedonia Group's (Cleveland, Ohio) Wood & Competitive Decking report (issued in April 2009),
23 Nov 2013 Abstract. This study deals with the fabrication of composite matrix from saw dust (SD) and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) at different ratio (w/w) by flat-pressed method. Wood plastic composites (wpcs) are relatively new generation of composite materials and also the most promising sector in the field of both composite and plastic industries. . Density of the SD-PET composites decreased with the increase of SD percentage in the thermoplastic matrices.

Growing demand for wood plastic composite as a low cost and environmentally friendly substitute to plastic and steel components in construction applications is expected to drive market growth. the improved properties offered by the wood plastic
they can however be recycled easily in a new wood-plastic composite, much like concrete. One advantage over wood is the ability of the material to be molded to meet almost any desired shape. A wpc member can be bent and fixed to form strong arching curves. Another major selling point of these materials is their lack of need for paint. they are manufactured in a variety of colors, but are widely available in grays and earth tones. Despite up to 70 percent cellulose content (although
8 Dec 2017 EU statistics are provided on the production of wood, wood-related employment and international trade. the last part of the article covers figures on international trade in timber, and in particular tropical wood. Table 1: Roundwood . Decking and moulding imports from both China and the FLEGT countries are in a slow decline, as alternative non-wood products are becoming available, for example wood-plastic composite materials that resist decay from weathering.
12 Mar 2015 the report further analyzes quantitatively 2009-2014 global and China's total market of Wood Plastic composite by calculation of main economic parameters of each company; the breakdown data of Wood Plastic composite market are presented by company, by country, US demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber is expected to increase more than 10 percent annually to $8.4 billion in 2018, creating a market for nearly four billion pounds of plastic.
Analysis of all recent developments in the wood-plastic composites market across the globe with emphasis on emerging regions; Analysis of potential applications and existing applications of wood-plastic composites; Analysis of country-wise rate of demand of wood-plastic composites for the past three years; Estimation of various costs involved to arrive at the value chain of the wood-plastic composites market; Finalization of market size values by triangulation with the supply side data
Highlights. •. the development of a design-value for wood–plastic composite (wpc) cladding is feasible and it can be derived from normative natural and accelerated weathering trials. Although this approach is widely used for approvals of cladding kits in Central Europe, it has not yet been used for wpcs. This could motivate façade planners to not only choose wpc cladding because of its sustainability but also because available performance data supports their design process.
the Global Wood Plastic composite (wpc) Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 13.2% over the next decade to reach approximately $9.7 billion by 2025. Some of the the study provides historical market data for 2013, 2014 revenue estimations are presented for 2015 and forecasts from 2016 till 2025. the study focuses on in the research scope. the market sizing analysis includes both top-down and bottom-up approaches for data validation and accuracy measures.
