Wood Plastic Composites Market Trends




  • Growing demand for wood plastic composite in the construction industry drives market growth.




Wood plastic composite is a material that looks similar to wood and has all the excellent properties of plastic. Thus, it is being used increasingly in the building and construction industry. The number of manufacturers of these composites is growing daily, and the range of WPC is impressive. The wide availability of WPC and its unique qualities have made it a popular choice amongst customers. The fusion of plastic and wood offers unique physical, aesthetic, and practical qualities while making a structure comfortable, beautiful, and durable. Thus, using plastic and wood is both fashionable and practical. The longevity, flexibility, and weather resistance of composites mean they can also be used to make a range of various building structures, such as temporary installations, underwater structures, bridges, roofs, terraces, paths, and garden products. Structures made from these composites don't crack and fade, or warp. They don't need any special protective products.


Moreover, dirt doesn't stick to them. All you need to do is wash them with water, which is safe when it comes to splinters or slipping over. Thus, the high demand from the construction industry is expected to drive the market CAGR.


Additionally, Increased focus on environment-friendly products in automotive is driving the market; wood plastic composite has a very high potential and is sustainable green material to achieve durability without the excessive use of toxic chemicals. Compared to the other fibrous materials, plant-based fibers are generally suitable for reinforced plastics due to their relatively high stiffness and strength, low cost, biodegradability, low density, low CO2 emission, and annually renewable properties. While many automakers are targeting to make the top part of the vehicle biodegradable or recyclable, there is a heavy scope for this Type of Composite as they are biodegradable polymers and plant-based. They enhance mechanical strength, and acoustic performance, reduce material weight, lower production cost and fuel consumption, improve passenger safety, provide shatterproof performance under extreme temperature changes, and improve biodegradability for the automotive interior parts. Thus, many targets are achieved due to the implementation of these composites in the automotive market, and these factors are expected to drive the Wood Plastic Composites market revenue.


Wood Plastic Composites Market Segment Insights


Wood Plastic Composites Type Insights


Based on type, the Wood Plastic Composites market segmentation includes polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, and others.
