Plastic Injection Molding Market Size to Surpass US$ 266.1

Ottawa, Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global wood plastic composite market size was accounted at USD 6.9 billion in 2022. The wood plastic composite is the mixture of pure wood as wood shaving and saw wood and plastic fibers. The material selection mainly depends on the producer’s preference and is based on the availability and properties of every component. The WPC increases the moisture resistance and durability of indoor and outdoor applications. The wood flooring weighting of 35-40% is mixed with the same amount of coupling agents and plastics. With the help of new process equipment and techniques, the WPC is becoming common so, globally more than 100 companies are involved in the production of this composite.

Market Dynamics

What are the drivers of wood plastic composite market?

  • The increasing demand in the construction industry for wood plastics composite drives the market. The wood plastic material is similar to the wood and has similar characteristics to plastics. Due to these characteristics, it is more used in the building and construction sector. The impressive nature of wood plastic composite increases the number of manufacturers day by day. Increasing availability and its unique properties made it popular with the customer.
  • The complexity of wood and plastics gives a unique, practical quality, aesthetic and physical nature while creating structure beautiful, comfortable and durable. The wealth resistance of composite, flexibility, and longevity are used to make different building structures like underwater structures, paths, terraces, bridges, temporary installations, and garden products. The cracks or wrap or fade are not created by the use of this structure and as dirt does not stick to it, still can wash with water and is safe. Therefore, the increase in demand is expected to increase the market growth.
  • WPC has high latent and is supportable green material to attain strength without more use of the toxic chemical. As compared to other materials, plant-based fibers are suitable for reinforcing plastics due to their high strength and high stiffness, annually renewable properties, low density, low cost, low CO2 emission, and biodegradability. WPC increases the mechanical strength, increases passenger safety, decreases fuel consumption and production cost, reduces material weight, and acoustic performance, and increases biodegradability. So, due to the implementation of this wood plastic composite in the automotive market expected to grow the market.

What are the restraints of wood plastic composite market?

The initial cost of wood plastic composite is high which may hamper its growth. Plastics decking and wood decking are more inexpensive than composite decking. So, the purchase cost of WPC decking is more as compared to plastic and wood.

Plastic decking and wood decking are less expensive as compared to composite decking. Many countries prefer pure wood as more production of pure wood, As the complex plastics and wood fibers are not 100% pure. So, at the time of installation, the shrinkage of plastics and thermal expansion of material are considered.

The growing expenditure on research may hinder the market growth. End-users have more demand for less-cost wood composite. In the construction and automotive businesses, wood composite is important. Their production costs are already more. so, end-users choose low-cost wood composites over high-cost wood composites.


The development of wood plastics composites will generate new growth opportunities. The strength of eco-friendly composites is acquiring more grip. The other composite has more toxins, this toxin has a negative effect on the environment and users so the demand for eco-friendly composite is increasing in many regions. These eco-friendly composites are cost-effective and safe for the environment. The use of plant-based materials and plant fibers are used in their mixtures that making them effective. The development of green composites will generate growth opportunities for the wood-plastic composites market.

The automotive manufacturers have investments in the WPC market. The growing demand from the automotive market for green composites is generating an excellent effect on the growth of the market. There are so many benefits of green wood plastics composites that have more eco-friendly importance. Unbreakable performance, exciting changes, and development in the biodegradable are more. The market development will rise the source of alertness in the market. All these growth factors increase the market growth of wood plastic composite. 


  • Wood plastics composites have severe guidelines for production. The manufacture of the wood plastic composite is limited as it uses plastics. The usage of plastics is fewer than the other composites. The misuse of plastics may produce a decreasing effect on the market.
  • The lack of alertness is a critical challenge in the market. The awareness and demand for destructive composites are more in many regions. This may hinder the demand for wood plastics composites in different areas.
