Increasing Usage of Sustainable Fibers to Boost Growth
Woodplastic composites are green materials that have high potential in bringingabout sustainability. Theydon’t contain excessive chemicals that may pose toxicfor the environment and are durable in nature. Plant-based fibers are mainlyused in reinforced plastics, instead of fibrous materials as theyarecosteffective, robust, highly stiff, and annually renewable. Such fibers also emitless carbon dioxide, have low density, and possess biodegradability properties.Numerous automakers worldwide are aiming to develop biodegradable or recyclableparts of vehicles by using sustainable wood plastic composites. They would aidin lowering fuel consumption and production cost, offering shatterproofperformance under harsh weather conditions, enhance passenger safety, lowerweight of the material, and improve acoustic performance. However, wood plasticcomposites require higher initial cost spending. It may obstruct growth.
Decking Segment to Grow Rapidly Owing to High Demand fromConstructionSector
