Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 06, 2014
There has been an increase in the demand for PVC-capped decking products in the Global Wood-Plastic Composites market. Capped decking products have protective plastic surfaces that provides resistance to staining, fading, and scratching. While most uncapped decking products provide similar benefits to and are cheaper than capped decking products, they require periodic cleaning for maintenance. Thus, the demand for capped decking products, especially those with PVC caps, is expected to be high during the forecast period. A number of vendors such as Fiberon and CPG International offer these products.
Analysts forecast the Global Wood-Plastic Composites market will grow at a CAGR of 9 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, the increase in the demand for wood-plastic composites from the Housing industry is one of the major drivers. In this industry, the demand for these composites is particularly high for usage in interior decorations and outdoor constructions such as decking, thereby contributing to the market growth.
