Russian Wood-Polymer Composites (WPC) Market 2013–2018
08.10.2014 — date of publishing
The object of the research report is the analysis of the Russian market of wood-plastic composites (WPC, wood-plastic composite, wood-polymer composite, «liquid wood»).
The subject of the research report is WPC and WPC-ware. In this study we refer to WPC as to a composite material consisting of a polymeric base and an organic filler in the form of wood dust or proximate materials: cellulose, agricultural waste, etc.
The most part of the WPC-ware produced in the world are being manufactured by the extrusion technology. The most widely spread WPC-products are: decking , lagging, footbridges, landings, floor pavement, fences, sound collision walls, railings, landscape design elements, street furniture, cafe furniture, flower bed, windows, doors, window-sills, thresholds, car interior elements, furniture, interior decoration, roofing, siding, flat trays, pallets, containers, etc.
According to Research.Techart's estimation, the consumption size of WPC in 2013 increased for 17,9% compared to the previous year. The share of import amounted to 13%.
- retrospective — 2008–2013;
- forecast 2014–2018.
- the rest of the world – basic data about the dynamics and trends.
The report consists of 10 parts.
The first part contains the overview of the research subject: WPC characteristics, qualities, advantages and disadvantages in comparison with the substitute goods, spheres of usage.
In the second part the details of the production technology of wood-plastic composites are considered.
The third and the fourth parts contain the analysis of the world and Russian markets. In relation to the world market, there are its general estimation, geographical and sectoral structures of consumption. Also the peculiarities of regional markets are considered.
The fifth part contains the competitive analysis with the detailed consideration of the concentration level, competitors characteristics.
The sixth part is devoted to the analysis of consumers and the seventh part — to the cost analysis.
The eighth part describes the factors influencing the market.
The ninth part contains the forecast of the Russian WPC market.
In the tenth part there is the analysis of the equipment present on the Russian market of WPC.
The conclusion contains resume.
The target audience of the research:
– world and Russian WPC market players;
– foreign producers and Russian suppliers of the equipment for the production of WPC;
– consumers: participants of the construction branch, furniture trade, automobile manufacturing;
– potential investors.
