Global Wood Plastic Composites Market 2017-2021

Global Wood Plastic Composites Market 2017-2021

About Wood Plastic Composites

WPC is a material that is manufactured with wood coupled with a suitable polymer matrix. Compounding, extrusion, and injection molding are the commonly employed techniques for manufacturing WPCs. Wood plastic composites (WPCs) consist of natural fibers and additives compounded with a polymer matrix. These composites are manufactured using either wood and plastic wastes or recyclates, or plastic materials and virgin wood.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global wood plastic composites market to grow at a CAGR of 11.37% during the period 2017-2021.
