Table of Contents

Natural appearance drives growth in composite lumber

Demand for wood-plastic composite (WPC) and plastic lumber will be spurred by increasing consumer interest in more aesthetically pleasing materials. Such products as capstock-coated WPC decking and cellular polyvinyl chloride (PVC) molding and trim and windows and doors are exhibiting greater usage because of their ability to recreate the grains and textures of natural wood lumber, while offering users longer lifespans and minimal maintenance needs. Capstock-coated products now dominate decking demand in the WPC segment, while cellular PVC products will take market share from traditional plastic lumber products across a wide range of applications.

Decking remains leading application

According to Wood-Plastic Composite & Plastic Lumber, a new study from The Freedonia Group, decking will remain the leading application for WPC and plastic lumber going forward. Not only will homeowners continue to install decks to create outdoor entertainment and recreation areas, but they will increasingly add such features as outdoor kitchens, firepits, and hot tubs to their decks. Decks will be larger in size and will require more railings and other components to create the benches, tables, privacy lattices, and other related features.

New application spurs gains

The newest application for WPC and plastic lumber is backing material for luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring. Such materials as USFloors’ CORETEC WPC backing enhance comfort underfoot and add durability to LVT without sacrificing other performance properties, such as ease of installation. As more LVT floors are installed in homes and commercial structures, specifiers will opt for those products with WPC and plastic lumber backings, further spurring gains.

Manufacturers seek new applications

Freedonia Group states, a key development in the industry is the effort of manufacturers who formerly concentrated on decking to offer other WPC and plastic lumber products. Such items as fencing and landscaping products can be marketed as complementary items used to create outdoor showpieces ideal for entertaining guests or areas for family leisure and recreational activities. Other producers offer exterior trim, stressing its ability to enhance the look and value of a home.
