report has been added to's

The wood plastic composite (WPC) market is expected to register a
moderately high growth rate during the forecast period, 2018-2023.

Growing Use of Recyclable Materials in Automotive Production
to Drive the Market

Automotive manufacturers are focusing on switching to recyclable or
biodegradable parts and go for lightweight materials. This has increased
the demand for wood plastic composites in the automotive industry.

WPCs are primarily used in automobiles for storage (trims in trunks,
shelves for spare tires, etc.), interior door trims, etc. Furthermore,
they are often used to replace metal or fiberglass components in
automotive components.

With automotive production growing through the years, primarily in
Asia-Pacific and Europe an region, the consumption of WPCs too will rise
in the automotive industry through the forecast period.

According to analysis, automotive parts application is estimated to be
the fastest growing segment through the forecast period, while building
& construction is expected to dominate the global market owing to the
vast application of wood plastic composite in decking.
