About Wood Plastic Composites

WPC is a material that is manufactured with wood coupled with a suitable polymer matrix. Compounding, extrusion, and injection molding are the commonly employed techniques for manufacturing WPCs. Wood plastic composites (WPCs) consist of natural fibers and additives compounded with a polymer matrix. These composites are manufactured using either wood and plastic wastes or recyclates, or plastic materials and virgin wood.

The analysts forecast the global wood plastic composites market to grow at a CAGR of 11.37% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Wood Plastic Composites Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global wood plastic composites market: Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (AERT), CPG International, Fiberon, Trex Company, and Universal Forest Products.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Envisiontec, ExOne, MASSIVit 3D, Shaanxi Hengtong Intelligent Machine, and Ultimaker.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is increasing use of bioplastics and recycled plastics. The consumption of virgin plastics and recycling of post-consumer plastics has seen a significant rise over the last decade. Plastics form one of the largest municipal solid waste. However, they are being used as a reliable raw material for value-added WPCs. HDPE and PP are the largest polymer components found in post-consumer uses followed by polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene (PS), and LDPE. This creates notable opportunities for material recovery for producing WPCs.”

According to the report, one driver in market is compliance pressure driving WPCs market. The high-cost factor associated with WPCs is the least of worries when the environmental footprint is a primary concern. The pressure to comply with carbon dioxide emissions and fuel economy targets are compelling researchers across the globe to look at composites in every aspect, right from the raw material to finished product. The European Union and the end-of-life vehicle directive mandate that 85% by weight of the material used in cars and light trucks built for 2015 model year and beyond to be recyclable or reusable. In addition, in the cradle-to-cradle scenario for WPCs, the materials after each lifecycle are cascaded and reused.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is quality assurance and consumer perception. Since the class of materials used as WPCs is relatively novel, newly developed products from WPCs need time to penetrate the market. Wood has been traditionally used for all requirements largely in the construction sector. Consumers might perceive WPCs to be counterfeit wood. Although it has superior performance abilities, this consumer perception might prove to be a deterrent to the global WPCs market. Aesthetics and economic considerations are also vital when consumer perception is measured. The high cost-to-performance ratio of WPCs to wood makes them less preferable. Therefore, the low preference for recyclates in WPC products might be a deterrent to the market growth.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
