WPC Market Continuously Expanding
Wood plastic composite materials have a large market precisely because of its environmental protection and energy – saving, in line with the current social development needs and people’s requirements for life. In the process of developing wood plastic composite materials for many years, more attention has been paid to its green and environment-friendly properties.
With the promotion of high speed and high efficiency and the birth of new applications, WPC market is in a period of rapid growth.
The overall situation of plastic processing usually represents the processing of wood plastic composites: the cost of raw materials accounts for the largest share of the overall production cost. In order to reduce these costs, there is a trend in the industry, which is more inclined to apply co-extrusion. At the same time, demand for low-cost fillers is rising, such as rice husks, mineral fillers or recycled fibres. In addition, hollow profiles are used to replace solid profiles, which greatly saves raw materials and reduces the cost of raw materials.
In addition, the wood plastic composite industry began to use some biological materials and biodegradable materials. Wood plastic composite is booming in recent years a new type of composite material, the use of polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC, etc., instead of the usual resin adhesive, with over 50% of wood powder, rice husk, straw waste plant fiber blend into a new wooden material, then through extrusion, plastic mold, injection molding processing, produce the sheet or shaped, mainly used in building materials, furniture, logistics packaging, etc.
