Executive Summary

According to a new report titled, North America Wood Plastic Composites Market by Type, Application and Country: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023, the North America wood plastic composites was valued at $736 million in 2016, and is projected to reach at $1,876 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 12.4% from 2017 to 2023.

WPCs are composed of wood or wood flour, plastics, and additives. The source of the materials can be either virgin or recycled material. The demand for materials based on renewable raw materials has been on an increase in the recent years. Furthermore, increase in interest from governments about climate protection and sustainability result in the expansion of market size of natural-based materials, such as wood plastic composites (WPC).

Increase in availability of non-utilized plastic and wood wastes, demand from building & construction applications, and stringent regulations on the use of chemicals in building materials majorly boost the growth of the North America wood plastic composites market. However, surge in cost of raw materials and issues with respect to mechanical strength and/or weight hamper the market growth.

The building & construction segment accounted for more than three-fourths share of the North America market in 2016, in terms of volume, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period, owing to its improved performance and appearance characteristics. However, automotive components are expected to grow with a high rate due to rise in demand for recyclable and lightweight materials.

Based on country, the market is analyzed across U.S., Canada, and rest of North America. The U.S. generated the highest revenue in 2016, accounting for $517 million, owing to increased automotive production in the country.
