Wood Plastic Composites Market, By Resin Type (Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Poly Vinyl Chloride, Oth

Published Date: April 2019 | Report Code : MT1931366


Wood Plastic Composites Market is projected to reach USD 10.19 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period. Increasing demand from automotive components, furniture, and other applications is expected to boost this demand. Composites are materials made from two or more constituent materials that are different from each other in physical and chemical properties, which, when combined, produce a material with characteristics and properties different from each of the individual components. Each component will remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. The main components of composites are fibers, which are the reinforcing material (for instance, aramid, carbon, wood, etc.) and the matrix, which is the binder (for instance- bitumen, polyester, vinyl ester, etc.).

Wood Plastic Composites Market

In wood plastic composites, the matrix or binder is a plastic material such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, etc. and the fiber or the reinforcing material is wood such as bamboo, peanut hulls, pine, oak, etc. Additives such as reinforcing agents, colorants, and lubricants can be added to achieve higher levels of specification according to the intended product use. One of the biggest advantages of wood plastic composites is that they do not corrode and are highly resistant to rot, decay, and marine borer attacks. Composites can be molded into almost any desired shape. The production of wood plastic composites does not require the use of any harmful chemicals such as arsenic toxins, chromium, etc., which have been banned by many governments due to their harmful effects.

Wood Plastic Composites Market

They are used in a variety of applications including building and construction, automobiles, in the manufacturing of goods such as toys, trays, musical instruments, etc. They are increasingly being used in interiors of cars, speakers, home furniture, and kitchen appliances, as they are durable, require low maintenance, rust-free, and can endure high temperatures.

North America is leading the market and accounts for more than 50% share of the total market. This is mainly due to the use of wood plastic composites for construction in the region.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Durable, low maintenance, rust-free, and can withstand high temperatures
  • Can be molded in almost any desired shape
  • Increasing demand from the automobile and construction industry
  • Harmful chemicals such as arsenic toxins, chromium, etc., are not required in the production

Key Developments:

  • In April 2018, a US-based company, Cali Bamboo added a decking line made of wood plastic composite (60% recycled wood fiber and 40% high-density plastics).
  • In May 2018, a bio-composite called DuraSense was launched by a partnership between companies Stora Enso and Orthex. It is a wood plastic composite made from spruce and pine. It can be used in a variety of consumer products and can potentially replace non-renewable materials.
  • In September 2017, CertainTeed Corporation launched a polyurethane composite siding called ICON which has superior moisture resistance.
