Global Wood Plastic Composite Market Trends

Wood plastic composites are composites made from a unique blend of natural wood and plastic fibres, predominantly thermoplastic resins, and wood flour filler. It is among the crucial and potential engineering wood products that are extensively utilised in the field of construction, transportation, landscape, and municipal engineering.

 

Growing Demand for Wood Plastic Composite in Construction

Wood-plastic composites (WPC) are materials that provide the look of wood and the properties of plastic in one product. The wide availability and unique qualities of WPC have led to surging demand in the construction industry, which is driving the growth of the market.

 

Rising Demand from the Automobile Sector

The scope for bio-degradable or recyclable materials is high among the automakers as they increasingly adopt composites, which helps them increase mechanical strength and improve performance while reducing production cost.

 

Increasing Demand for Sustainable Materials to Offer Significant Opportunities to the Market

Wood plastic composites possess high potential as a sustainable green material and provide durability without the use of too many toxic chemicals. WPCs are largely sustainable because of the utilisation of wood waste and recyclable plastic component, which helps in reducing deforestation and carbon emissions.

 

Significant High Initial Cost and Resistance to Extreme Temperature to be the Major Challenges for the Market

Wood plastic composites (WPC) comes with a high initial cost when compared to wood and plastic, which are used for the same purpose. The WPC products have higher investment, although long term utilisation can help in saving costs owing to its low maintenance costs. 

 

In terms of resistance, WPC has good stability and resistance to low temperature and normal temperature conditions but it falls flat when put under high or extreme temperatures.

 

Global Wood Plastic Composite Market Analysis
