Wood-Plastic Composite & Plastic Lumber

As Quoted In Plastics Information Europe

US demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber will grow 9.2 percent annually through 2013, driven by advantages over natural wood. Decking, molding and trim will remain key markets while decking and fencing grow at above-average rates. Wood-plastic lumber will outpace plastic types.

This study analyzes the $3.4 billion US wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by material, application (e.g., decking, molding and trim, landscaping and outdoor products, fencing, windows and doors) and market (residential building, nonresidential building, nonbuilding).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including Trex, Royal Outdoor Products and Tapco Group.
