Global Wood-Plastic Composites Market to Reach US$ 12.7 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Significant Growth in Construction Industry

March 27, 2023 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Wood-Plastic Composites Market Report by Type (Polyethylene, Polyvinylchloride, Polypropylene, and Others), Application (Building and Construction, Automotive, Industrial and Consumer Goods, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global wood-plastic composites market size reached US$ 5.6 Billion in 2023. Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) are materials made from wood flour fillers and thermoplastic resins, such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). They are manufactured using several techniques, including extrusion, injection molding, and thermoforming. WPCs are widely used for producing furniture, park benches, door and window frames, outdoor landscape, toys, vehicle interiors, packaging materials, consumer electronics, and musical instruments. As compared to traditional wood, WPCs are lightweight and highly durable products that require low maintenance, offer excellent dimensional stability, and provide long service life. They are also easy to recycle, allow consumer-specific customization, and provide resistance against moisture, molds, and corrosion.

Global Wood-Plastic Composites Market Trends:

The significant growth in the construction industry is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. WPCs are widely used in the construction of prefabricated houses, outdoor deck floors, railings, ceilings, claddings, cornices, frames, tiles, porches, pergolas, garbage bins, window sills, and kitchen compartment frames. In addition to this, increasing product utilization for constructing bridges, underwater structures, paths, and temporary installations is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread product adoption in the automotive industry to produce door panels, dashboards, interior trims, luggage cabin lining, and engine compartments is providing an impetus to the market growth. Additionally, the rising product demand as a filament in three-dimensional (3D) printing for developing prototypes, models, and components in the architecture, engineering, aerospace, education, and medical industries is positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the recent incorporation of novel and environmental-friendly polyamide polymers as a reinforcement material in product manufacturing to improve its mechanical strength, ductility, and thermal stability is favoring the market growth. Moreover, increasing consumer awareness regarding various product benefits, such as biodegradability, cost-effectiveness, ease of use, and eco-friendly nature, are providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Along with this, the widespread product utilization for manufacturing musical instruments, such as electric guitars, clarinets, flutes, pianos, and soundboards, is propelling the market growth. Other factors, including rapid infrastructural development activities, increasing product utilization in manufacturing noise barriers, and the widespread product adoption to produce consumer goods, such as toys and showpieces, are anticipated to drive the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 12.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.3% during 2024-2032.
