About Wood-Plastics Composites

Wood-plastic composites are materials, which hare made up of wood flour or fiber and plastic resins. These composites also contain a certain degree of additives, which foster the integration of the wood and plastic and aid in the manufacturing process. Most wood-plastic composites are manufactured using wood and plastic wastes or recyclates. A minor share of these products is manufactured using virgin wood and plastic materials. Extrusion is largely employed for the manufacturing process, followed by injection moulding.

The analysts forecast the Global Wood-Plastic Composites market will grow at a CAGR of 9 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “There has been an increase in the demand for PVC-capped decking products in the Global Wood-Plastic Composites market. Capped decking products have protective plastic surfaces that provide resistance to staining, fading, and scratching. While most uncapped decking products provide similar benefits to and are cheaper than capped decking products, they require periodic cleaning for maintenance. Thus, the demand for capped decking products, especially those with PVC caps, is expected to be high during the forecast period. A number of vendors such as Fiberon and CPG International offer these products.”

According to the report, the increase in the demand for wood-plastic composites from the Housing industry is one of the major drivers. In this industry, the demand for these composites is particularly high for usage in interior decorations and outdoor constructions such as decking, thereby contributing to the market growth.

Further, the report states that the low preference for recyclates in products is one of the major challenges. Most products offered by the market vendors are manufactured using recycled material or recyclates rather than virgin materials. Several buyers have concerns about the performance, durability, and quality of recyclates in products and prefer wood-plastic composites manufactured using virgin materials.

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.
