Wood Plastic Composites Market - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2017 -- Wood plastic composites (WPC) are natural fibers composed of recycled thermoplastics, wood filler, and additives. Thermoplastics used in WPC are polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene, and others. Additives are added to improve stability, processing, and physical appearance. WPCs are formed mainly by single stage extrusion or two stage extrusion process. They are expensive than many conventional wood materials but possess various advantages such as longer durability, pressure treated lumber, termite & fungi susceptibility, water & weather resistance, easy maintenance, environmental friendly, and others. Due to excellent characteristics, WPCs are used in different applications such as fences, railing, furniture, wall cladding, and others.
