Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.
Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.
Composite decking is a man-made construction material composed of an approximately equal combination of recycled wood fibers and recycled plastics. Composite decking products have a significantly longer lifespan than wood decks since they are so sturdy and rot-resistant. Composite Decking is major of two types: Capped Composite and Uncapped Composite. Capped composite decking is a type of wood plastic composite (WPC) product with a surface layer and a core layer made of functional plastics (mostly HDPE and PP) and natural fiber (wood powder), with a certain number of additives (anti UV agent, antioxidant, coupling agent, lubricant, colorant, etc.) added and processed using specialized mixing and molding equipment.
Composite is defined as “a mixture of parts or substances.” Manufacturers use natural and synthetic elements to create composite decking. Wood fiber, virgin or recycled plastic, and chemical additives make up the majority of composite deck boards. Composite decking can be built of polypropylene, polyethylene, or completely nonwood polymers. Products made of polypropylene(PP) are more durable and less likely to expand and contract. Polyethylene(PE) has long service life as the most prevalent plastic used by composite makers because of its greater availability. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) decks are constructed of plastics that do not discolor or absorb water and have no wood content. These are more expensive than wood, lighter than other composites, and usually do not contain any recycled material. Some composite decking is more fade-resistant than others, which is something that can be considered as well.
Unlike other construction markets, where the sudden outburst of the pandemic collapsed the demand across regions, here, in the composite deck and railings market, manufacturers represented uncharted territory with over 9.0% growth in 2020. The USA, the largest market, grew significantly during this trying time, mainly due to the increased demand for composite decks among the existing homeowners. Homeowners are moving towards adopting greener products and increasing the activities in do-it-yourself (DIY) and outdoor living projects.
Furthermore, to boost the demand for composite decks and railings amid the pandemic, leading players have reduced the prices to make their products affordable. Major players have also raised their capacities in order to meet the growing demand. In the long term, the market for composite decks and railings is subjected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.4% over the next five years to reach US$ 4.27 billion by 2026.
For ease of analysis, the composite decks and railings market is segmented into six types, namely Product Type, Type, Resin Type, Application Type, Sales Type, and Region. Based on the product type, the market is segmented as Decks and Railings. Deck is expected to grow at a higher rate in the market during the forecast period since the decking products deliver various advantages, such as resistance to insects and molds and low maintenance costs. Furthermore, as decking products are fade-resistant and offer stain resistance, it becomes convenient to clean them, and also they have high color retention.
Based on the Type, the market is segmented as capped composites and uncapped composites. Capped Composites are expected to grow at a higher pace in the market during the forecast period owing to their characteristics, such as confrontation to breakage, decomposing, development of mold & mildew, and color diminishing. Capped composites also deliver ultra-low maintenance cost and premium aesthetics against natural wood decking and railing products. They are extensively employed in residential and non-residential applications, owing to their physical properties.
Based on the resin type, the market is segmented as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, and others. The polyethylene segment accounts for the largest market share of the composite decking and railings market. Polyethylene resin has elevated strength and sturdiness, which is suitable for residential application, necessitating a joist 16 inch on center. Polypropylene is estimated to be the fastest-growing resin type during the forecast period. They confront thermal expansion & contraction, enabling them to be suitable in the manufacturing of composite decking & railings in elevated temperature regions.
Based on the application type, the composites decks and railings market is segmented as Residential and Non-Residential. Residential is estimated to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period. The characteristics presented by composite decking & railings, such as confrontation to thermal expansion and contraction when uncovered to sunlight and resistance to splinter & rot are beneficial in application areas.
In terms of regions, presently, North America is the largest procurer of composite decking & railing. In terms of country, the USA, Germany, and China are the growth engines of the global market. North America is likely to remain the largest procurer in the global market over the next five years, whereas Asia-Pacific is subjected to grow at the fastest pace in the post-pandemic market developments. There has been an incessant increase in the penetration of composite decks & railings in the developed regions, mainly the USA.
Over the years, the market for composites decks and railings has gradually been consolidating with major companies are performing mergers & acquisitions to gain the leading position in this briskly expanding market. For instance, in May 2011, the leading composite decking company; Iron Deck was acquired by a leading composite deck manufacturer; Trex Company. Some of the major key players in the composite decks and railings market are listed below.
