Wood-Plastic Composite Decking: United States
This report forecasts to 2023 US wood-plastic composite decking demand in lineal feet. Total demand is segmented by type in terms of: wood-polyethylene and other wood-plastic composites such as polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene. Total demand is segmented by market as follows: residential buildings, commercial buildings, and nonbuilding. Total demand is also segmented by surface treatment: capstock-coated and uncoated.
To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.
Decks are defined as unroofed, floored areas that are attached to the exterior of a structure. Typically, they are located at the rear of a building. This report encompasses deck boards, which are used to make the floor of the deck, as well as railing systems (consisting of a top rail, spindles, and bottom rail) and other built-in accessories, such as stairs, benches, and planter boxes. Decking demand numbers do not include structural components of decking systems (e.g., posts and joints).
Competitive products to decking, which are excluded from the scope of this report, include: balconies (platforms protruding from an upper story of a building – either cantilevered or supported from below), patios (ground-level, paved outdoor areas located at the rear of a structure and can be either uncovered or shaded), and porches (can be open-sided, screened, or glass-enclosed; raised off the ground; and typically roofed – often located at the front of a building, although they can also wrap around an entire building).
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
