US demand for wood-plastic composite (WPC) and plastic lumber is forecast to advance 6.9 percent per year to $5.9 billion in 2020. WPC and plastic lumber have taken market share from wood lumber in such applications as decking and molding and trim due to their favorable Personal consumption Expenditures.
17 Nov 2016 THE UNIVERSITY of BRITISH COLUMBIA Vancouver, British Columbia wood plastic composites (WPCs) as an Alternative to .. Freedonia Group Inc estimated that by 2013, the decking in the United States would reach 3.6 billion lineal feet with 2.1% .. finish quality of the product, but also increase the production cost due to the need of higher power consumption (Buehlmann, 2001).
Using waste as a resource is one of the goals for sustainable consumption and production, and essential for the realization of the close-loop economic option. The global plastic recycling market was valued at US% 31.5 bn in 2015 and is expected to be growing at a 6.9% annual growth rate Thus, increasing the wood component ratio in the composite leads to a decrease of its stability [11, 12, 30].
