Polyvinylchloride wood-plastic composites segment to register high growth due to its advantages over other types of WPC composites

Polyvinylchloride (PVC) is a thermoplastic material, which can be melted repeatedly. It becomes soft on being heated to a certain temperature, and then hardens on cooling. PVC is a widely consumed type of WPC in the global market. Due to its various advantages, consumers prefer using it as compared to other types of WPC. PVC wood-composites are extensively used in the construction business as it is a low maintenance material. It is widely used in various countries such as the U.S., the U.K., and Ireland. This material has almost entirely replaced the use of raw wood, which has a tendency to rot after a couple of years.
