Wood fiber or flour and thermoplastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride are the key raw materials used in the manufacturing of wood-plastic composites (WPC). WPCs are sub-sets of a bigger class of natural fiber plastic composites (NFPCs). These composites are produced by mixing ground wood particles and heated thermoplastic resins. The most common WPCs product production process is to extrude the material into the desired shape by way of injection molding. WPCs can be manufactured with either virgin or recycled thermoplastic resins. Being water, weather and mould resistant, this material can be used for various outdoor applications; whereas untreated or chemically treated timber products are not as suited to weather ability as WPC products. In addition, WPCs are wood and plastic products that offer exceptional environmental credential and performance.

The global wood-plastic composites market is mainly driven by strong demand from building & construction industry. Building & construction industry is a major outlet for wood-plastic composites. Wood-plastic composites are widely used in large number of applications in building & construction industry. Wood-plastic composites are primarily used for decking, fencing, molding and windows. Wood-plastic composites are becoming increasingly popular among end-users owing its high durability and low-maintenance requirement. However, availability of substitute materials (e.g. development of other natural fiber composites) is expected to hamper growth of this industry in the years to come.

Wood Plastic Composites Market

Polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and others are key product segments of wood-plastic composites market. Polyethylene is leading product segment of wood-plastic composites market. Polyethylene accounted for over 60% share of total wood-plastic composites consumed in 2014. However, polyvinyl chloride is expected to exhibit fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Construction is the largest product segment for wood-plastic composites. Automotive was the second largest market with over 20% share of the total wood-plastic composites volume consumed in 2014. WPCs are used for manufacturing automobile components such as internal trim for door panels, dashboards, luggage racks, seat cushions, backrests and other interior liners. Usage of WPCs reduces the overall weight of automobiles, which also enhances fuel efficiency, and it also ensures compliance with environmental regulations due to reduced carbon emissions. Automotive is also expected be the fastest growing application market fo wood-plastic composites in the next five years.

North America was the leading regional market for wood-plastic composites in 2014. Europe was the second largest market with around 17% share in total volume consumption in 2014. However, demand for wood-plastic composites in Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit robust growth owing to booming construction and automotive industry in the region.   

The global wood-plastic composites market is highly scattered in nature. The key players in the wood-plastic composites market include Trex Company Inc., Fiberon LLC., CPG International, Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (AERT), Timber Tech, and Fineko. Other prominent vendors in the market include American Wood Fibers, AMSCO Windows, Artowood Thailand, B&F Plastics. Beologic, CertainTeed, Crane Plastics, Deceuninck, Findock, FKuR Kunststoff, Guangzhou Kindwood, Josef Ehrler, Louisiana-Pacific, North Wood Plastics, OnSpec Composites, Perth Wood Plastic Composite, Plygem Holdings, Polymera, Polyplank, Solvay, Strandex, Tamko Building Products, Technaro, UPM-Kymmene, and WPC.
