Insights on the Wood-plastic Composites Global Market to 2026 - by Type, Application and Region

·7-min read

Dublin, July 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Wood-Plastic Composites Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global wood-plastic composites market is expected to exhibit strong growth during 2021-2026. Wood-plastic composites are hybrid materials which are made by blending natural wood products such as bamboo, pulp, bark etc. with thermoplastics or polymers. These products can be easily drilled and planed and are created by using biodegradable, recycled, renewable plastic materials. Wood-plastic composites possess qualities of both wood and plastic. These composites are versatile, durable and rot resistant in nature which makes it possible for the manufacturers to produce them in any shape.

Wood plastic composites are capable of working in high temperature zones owing to which they can be used in the locations where normal wood materials cannot be used. Production of these materials encourages the reuse of wood waste which is otherwise sent to landfills. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global wood-plastic composites market to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period (2021-2026).Wood-plastic composites market drivers:

The use of wood plastic composites prevents the deforestation owing to which they act as an ideal substitute for hard wood. Additionally, the manufacturing process of wood plastic composites does not involve any chemical which can be harmful or toxic to the environment. These environmental concerns and rising awareness regarding them act as a primary factor which has been driving the growth of the market.

The demand for wood plastic composites has been witnessing a robust growth in the construction and automobile industries as they are inexpensive in nature and are easy to be used in different non-structural areas including balconies, staircases, pillars, etc.
Wood plastic composites offer numerous benefits as compared to its substitutes. They are durable, rust-free in nature, require low-maintenance and sustain high temperatures on account of which they are being increasingly used in interiors, car speakers, and home furniture and kitchen appliances. This has contributed towards an augmented demand for wood plastic composites across the globe.

There has been an increase in industrialisation and urbanisation in developing nations which has given a boost to the construction and building sectors. These are some of the growth-inducing forces which have been acting in favour of the global wood composites market.
