US demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber is projected to advance 13.2 percent annually to $5.4 billion in 2015. Decking will remain the largest application and grow the fastest, followed by the molding and trim and window and door segments. Wood-plastic composite lumber will outpace plastic types.
This study analyzes the $2.9 billion US wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber industry. It presents historical demand data for 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by material (e.g., cellulosic, polyethylene, PVC), application (e.g., decking, molding and trim, fencing, landscaping and outdoor products, windows and doors) and market (residential, nonresidential, nonbuilding).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 41 industry players, including Trex, Royal Building Products and Tapco Group.
