Wood-Plastic Composite & Plastic Lumber

According to Wood-Plastic Composite & Plastic Lumber, a new study from The Freedonia Group, decking will remain the leading application for WPC andplastic lumber going forward. Not only will homeownerscontinue to install decks to create outdoor entertainment and recreation areas, but they will increasingly add such features as outdoor kitchens, firepits, and hot tubs to their decks. Decks will be larger in size and will require more railings and other components to create the benches, tables, privacy lattices, and other related features.

Freedonia Group states, a key development in the industry is the effort of manufacturers who formerly concentrated on decking to offer other WPC and plastic lumber products. Such items as fencing and landscaping products can be marketed as complementary items used to create outdoor showpieces ideal for entertaining guests or areas for family leisure and recreational activities. Other producers offer exterior trim, stressing its ability to enhance the look and value of a home.
