Wood plastic composites are manufactured from the combination of wood fibers and synthetic resin such as polypropylene, polyethylene or Polyvinyl Chloride which belong to the thermoplastic category. Wood, which is in the form of sawdust or wood flour and Wood fibers are recycled and pines are vigorously mixed with heated thermoplastic resins. Wood Plastic Composites possess the dual properties of wood and plastic. On mixing, wood flour magnifies the mechanical properties and thermal properties as compared to solid thermoplastics. Globally, increasing demand from building & construction activities and increasing demand for recyclable materials in automotive industry is expected to be the prime growth factor for wood plastic composites during the period of study.

Geographically, North America dominated the wood plastic composites (WPC) market driven by higher demand and consumption of wood plastic composites materials into a wide range of applications. Asia-North America was followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific as second and third largest market for wood plastic composites (WPC) market. Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, owing to Initiatives taken by governments to promote growth in the manufacturing sectors will further aid the growth of the wood-plastic composites market in developing nations such as China and India in this region.
