Wood plastic composites are the hybrid compound of wood fibers and thermoplastic resin. The most common method of production is to extrude the material into the desired shape. It is resistant to rot, moisture and germ infestation. Moreover, it can be molded into various shapes according to need. In addition, superior mechanical strength, low maintenance and weight reduction offered by these products are expected to propel demand for the construction and automotive industries.
The wood plastic composites have several advantages over traditional furniture-making materials like wood. Thus, the growing demand for construction and automotive is expected to be a major driving force of wood plastic composites market. Additionally, growing demand for recyclable materials in the automobile industry is predicted to boost the market size in the near future. However, the high cost of raw material is a major restraint that may hamper the market growth. Nonetheless, untapped market in emerging countries is likely to set the new wings to the market over the coming years.
The polyethylene segment accounted for the largest market share in 2016, followed by polypropylene segment. Polyethylene accounted for over 60% share of the total consumption in 2016 and likely to grow at a strong CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Furthermore, polyvinyl chloride segment is expected to be the most attractive segment of the market over the forecast period. Due to its various advantages, consumers prefer using it as compared to other types of WPC. PVC is extensively used in the constructions business as it is a low maintenance material.
