12 Nov 2008 Abstract. Wood Plastic Composites (WPCs) appear today as one of the most dynamic sectors in the plastic industry. This study was aimed at identifying the technology and market trends of the WPCs industry in North America (NA). More research about the Agricultural fibers have been used for decades in the automotive industry, with europe as leader. Rice hull has been NA market for WPCs is over $1 billion, and categories such as decking and railing (D&R) are
With the introduction of thermoplastics, the first commercial application of wood polymer composite (WPC) appeared in the mid-1950s, with the production of a wooden flooring tile made of pvc and wood flour. Part of a car-door (photos: Mondi) WPC decking is gaining market share throughout europe and many producers have been seen to have switched to the production of solid profiles, which offer a number of advantages in processing and installation, despite their weight.
7 Apr 2006 Several european companies offer WPC in pellet form at under €1 per kg. decking has been far the biggest engine of growth for WPC in the USA and the absence of a strong european decking market has held the WPC industry back. Nevertheless a number of european countries are now showing interest in decking, which had already become the leading WPC product in europe outside the automotive industry by 2004, as the figure shows. (The Hackwell Report
Based on product type the market is categorized into Polyvinylchloride (pvc), Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE) and other products. Other products segment is further segmented into Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene and polylactide. By end users, WPC market is segmented into automotive industry, industrial and infrastructure industry, building materials industry and other end users. Building materials industry segment is further divided into fencing, decking and
5 Sep 2013 China's WPC industry is the second largest in the world after the United States. According to the forecast (Fig. 1) China will reach 33% of the global WPC production in 2015, following the USA, which produces almost half of the total global market share. After. China, South East Asia, Russia, South America and India are rapidly emerging WPC markets. decking continues to be the most common field of application for WPCs, also in europe, where sales of solid profiles

26 Nov 2013 The total volume of WPC production in europe was 260,000 tonnes in 2012 (plus 90,000 tonnes Natural Fibres Composites for the automotive industry, see below). The level of market penetration of bio-based composites varies between different regions and application fields. Germany leads in terms of number of actors as well as in production figures. The typical production process in europe is extrusion of a decking profile based on a pvc or PE matrix.
