Market Overview:

The global wood plastic composites market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for wood plastic composites from various end-use industries, such as building and construction, automotive, electrical, and others. In terms of type, the polyethylene segment is expected to lead the global wood plastic composites market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as high strength-to-weight ratio and resistance against corrosion and abrasion.

Global Wood Plastic Composites Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Wood plastic composites (WPCs) are composite materials made of wood fiber/wood flour and thermoplastic(s). The most common thermoplastics used in WPC formulations are polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Additives such as colorants, coupling agents, UV stabilizers, blowing agents, anti-oxidants, and lubricants help tailor the end product to the target market.


Polyethylene is a widely used polymer in the wood plastic composites market. It is a tough, durable, and soft material at the same time. It can be easily processed and molded into any shape required by industry standards.


Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer that is produced from propylene oxide and carbon monoxide through catalytic dehydrogenation. It has high chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties, and good thermal stability. Polypropylene can be recycled and reused efficiently as it has a very low recycling rate of 5-10%.

Application Insights:

Building and construction was the largest application segment in 2017, accounting for over 50.0% share of the global volume. The rising demand for wood plastic composites in this application is attributed to their ability to act as a substitute for traditional materials such as steel and concrete, which have been major building materials throughout history.

The product¢â‚¬â„¢s lightweight properties make it ideal for use in residential buildings and high-rise structures, thereby reducing carbon emissions during transportation. Furthermore, its aesthetic appeal helps create a positive image of the brand name associated with the product which often attracts consumers to opt for these products over other synthetic alternatives offering similar functionalities at lower costs.

Automotive is expected to be one of the fastest growing segments owing to increasing consumer awareness regarding fuel efficiency coupled with government regulations that mandate reduced vehicle weightage throughout various regions across North America.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rapid industrialization, urbanization, and economic growth in China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam among other Southeast Asian countries. In addition, rising disposable income coupled with government initiatives such as “Make in India” are expected to boost automobile production which would drive demand for wood plastic composite products over the forecast period.

Europe accounted for 24% of total revenue share in 2017 on account of high product adoption across major end-use industries including automotive and electrical appliances manufacturing sectors due to stringent regulations regarding fuel economy performance & emissions reduction along with consumer preferences shifting towards electric vehicles for reducing pollution caused by vehicular exhaust gases in order that would propel demand for WPCs over the coming years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from construction and automotive industries: The global wood plastic composites market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for WPCs from the construction and automotive industries.
  • Growing awareness about environment-friendly products: There is a growing awareness among consumers about environment-friendly products, which is driving the demand for WPCs.
  • Rising popularity of outdoor decking: Decking made from WPCs has gained immense popularity in recent years owing to its durability and low maintenance requirements. This is expected to boost the growth of the global wood plastic composites market in future.
  • Technological advancements: The development of new technologies that help improve the performance of WPCs is likely to propel their growth in future years.
