's Rapid Development of Wood and Plastic Industry

wood-plastic composite material is a young and energetic industry. Its growth history is less than 50 years and it has settled in China for more than 10 years. After the unremitting efforts of domestic wood-plastic people, especially after the successful participation of wood-plastic composite materials in the construction of the Beijing Olympic venues, "wood-plastic materials" have developed rapidly. Gradually developing into an important strategic emerging industry is one of the few industries in my country's manufacturing industry that can enjoy equal voice with manufacturers in developed countries in Europe and America. 2016 Domestic WPCwood plastic reached 1.8 million tons, China has replaced the United States as the world's largest producer and exporter of wood and plastic products. The export growth rate in these years has exceeded 30%, and the results are gratifying.

a gentleman is knowledgeable and he is good at himself, he knows clearly and does nothing wrong.

the curtain of 2017 is about to close quietly, we wood plastic people should recall the past, know the gains and losses, clear the direction and carry out great achievements! As an observer of WPC wood plastic industry, let's sort out some topics that have attracted more attention from the wood plastic industry this year!

WPC wood plastic import and export tax rebate quota increased

enterprises will expand accordingly.

enterprises call for the establishment of separate tariff numbers and trade names as soon as possible.

Customs issued the document "Announcement No. 46 of 2017 of the General Administration of Customs (Decision on Announcing and Abolishing the Classification of Some Commodities)", which clearly classifies plastic-wood composite materials into the thirty-ninth category of plastic products listed in the commodity tariff number of the People's Republic of China Customs import and export goods. This code adjustment will increase the tax rebate for the export tax rebate of wood plastic enterprises every year, and the profitability of wood plastic enterprises will be greatly enhanced. But at the same time, wood plastic is not exactly the same as plastic. The wood plastic industry hopes that wood plastic can enjoy a separate tariff number and trade name, so as to formulate a corresponding tax rebate policy.

the Development Characteristics of U.S. Wood Plastic Industry

wood-plastic products (Decking and Railing) have been upgraded from first-generation products to second-generation co-extrusion products. The annual consumption of outdoor WPC market is about US $1.5 billion, accounting for more than 93% (including co-extrusion PE wood-plastic 80% and foamed co-extrusion PVC wood-plastic 13%), with an annual growth rate of more than 7%, accounting for more than 20% of outdoor floors;

production of pipeline automation scale and wood plastic products (Decking and Railing) market has been highly concentrated, the top three enterprises (Trex 30%, Timbertech 30%, Fiberon 20%) accounted for 84% of the WPC market;

the durability of wood-plastic products and the technological development of the third generation of wood-plastic products (Siding & Trim, Wall & Housing, StructuralMembers) are hot spots, with the direction of "Better, Stronger, Faster, Cheaper" and the emphasis on structural engineering wood-plastic composite products (SMA wood-plastic, ABS wood-plastic); The development of nano-plant fibers and their composites is a very important research direction for WPC; in addition, the development of outdoor wood-plastic furniture and 3D printing wood-plastic materials is also a new direction in the future.

the Future Development Direction of China's Wood Plastic Industry

According to the direction of "beautiful appearance, strong timber, fast installation and low price", new products, new technologies and new assemblies of wood plastic are developed. "Beautiful, durable and maintenance-free" needs to be maintained as a large selling point and hot spot of wood plastic. Among them, the durability of WPC products is the focus of development (no color removal, scratch resistance, stain resistance, mildew resistance and improvement of material rigidity);

co-extrusion wood plastic is the key point, and the technology of single-layer, multi-layer and single-line and multi-line co-extrusion is the innovation foundation;

PVC wood plastic products are a major feature of the Chinese market! Enriching and expanding wood-plastic materials and their application fields, the market potential and scale are much larger than polyolefin wood-plastic products. Foamed and co-extruded PVC wood-plastic products and their production technology and application development are worthy of attention because they are different from polyolefin wood-plastic products (flame retardant, light weight, high strength and beautiful appearance). Indoor green home decoration PVC wood-plastic products have sprung up and led the trend. Provide technical and product support for wood-plastic enterprises to enter the 100,000-ton level of large-scale production, open up indoor and outdoor wood-plastic product lines and realize wood-plastic integrated houses;

structures, such as SMA wood-plastic, ABS wood-plastic, PMMA wood-plastic, PA wood-plastic, PET wood-plastic and other engineering plastics wood-plastic technology, as well as the co-extrusion or composite technology development of wood-plastic and metal or structural materials, are the characteristics of the third generation of wood-plastic products. The successful developments in China include diamond wood, steel core wood, automobiles, doors and windows, furniture, cages and integrated houses;

3D printing wood-plastic materials, nano-plant fibers and their composite materials are hot spots.
