Summary
US demand to jump more than10 annually US
demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic
lumber is expected to increase more than 10
percent annually to 8.4 billion in 2018,
creating a market for nearly four billion pounds
of plastic. A rebound in new housing completions
from the low 2013 level and gains in residential
improvement and repair expenditures will generate
increases in demand. Demand gains will also be
boosted by increased market penetration in
decking applications, the predominant use for
composite and plastic lumber.

Decking to remain key application Decking
applications will account for more than
two-fifths of composite and plastic lumber demand
by 2018. Homeowners will increasingly choose
decks made from alternative lumber because it has
greater resistance to degradation by moisture,
changes in humidity, insect attack, and time, and
because it requires minimal maintenance over its
long service life. Ongoing changes to
manufacturing technologies that will improve the
color-fade resistance and the resemblance to
natural wood, particularly expensive hardwoods
such as ipe and redwood, will further boost
composite and plastic decking demand. Further
gains will result from efforts by manufacturers
to increase the scope of decking accessories
offered.

Among other applications, molding and trim
applications are also expected to advance at a
strong pace through 2018. Wood-plastic composite
and plastic lumber use in molding and trim will
benefit from renewed housing activity and
performance characteristics -- such as resistance
to moisture and ease of shaping -- that are
superior to those of lumber and engineered
wood. Wood-plastic composite lumber to outpace
plastic Increases in overall construction
activity will support demand gains for both types
of alternative lumber through 2018, but
wood-plastic composite demand will rise at a
quicker pace than demand for plastic lumber,
albeit from a smaller base.
