Analysis of the current situation and development trend of wood plastic composite industry

as a new material that can save wood and replace wood, after more than ten years of independent development, wood plastic composite is gradually developing into a new industry. Especially during the "12th Five Year Plan" period when energy conservation and emission reduction efforts are constantly strengthened and the development momentum of circular economy is vigorous, the wood plastic composite industry, which has the advantages of raw material recycling, product plasticization, environmental protection and renewable, conforms to the general trend of sustainable development and highlights the growing development potential

wood plastic composites have broad prospects

in recent interviews, we learned that, like many emerging industries, the wood plastic composite industry is also facing various difficulties in the early stage of development. Factors such as few product varieties, imperfect standards, lack of customs codes and so on have hindered the development of the industry. In order to shape the future competitiveness of the industry, there are still many problems to be solved in the wood plastic composite industry

new application fields need to be explored.

wood plastic composites are imported from North America and introduced into China in the late 1990s. This material not only combines the dual advantages of wood and plastic in performance, but also has remarkable low-carbon and environmental protection characteristics. Research data show that using 1 ton of wood plastic materials is equivalent to reducing 1.82 tons of carbon dioxide, reducing 1 cubic meter of deforestation, saving 80 barrels of crude oil and 11 tons of standard coal

because of the above characteristics, wood plastic composites have been highly valued as early as the "Eleventh Five Year Plan" period. In 2008, wood plastic composites made their debut at the Beijing Olympic Games, displaying a beautiful public business card. After that, wood plastic composites appeared frequently in large-scale public activities such as the Shanghai WorldExpo and the Guangzhou Asian Games, showing the world the elegance of this new material again and again. These demonstration functions have greatly promoted the development of wood plastic composite industry in China, and also attracted the attention of relevant national administrative departments. Since the 11th five year plan, more than 60 projects in the wood plastic composite industry have received the support of relevant ministries and commissions

it is learned from the fact that the main technical parameter of the pressure testing machine of the wood plastic composites Professional Committee of the China Association for comprehensive utilization of resources is the maximum experimental power that in 2011, the output of wood plastic composites in China exceeded 700000 tons, with an average annual growth rate of more than 20% in recent years. There are more than 500 mainstream production enterprises, and nearly 30% of the products are exported to Europe and the United States. China has become the world's largest producer and exporter of wood plastic composites

during the 12th Five Year Plan period, with the deepening of China's low-carbon economy, wood plastic composites conform to the general trend of national energy conservation, emission reduction and circular economy, highlighting great potential. In order to promote the development of wood plastic composites and improve the utilization rate of straw and other crop wastes and waste plastics, the national development and Reform Commission issued a notice on December 10, 2011, requiring the establishment of a number of wood plastic composite industry bases in China during the "12th Five Year Plan" period, supporting 4-5 wood plastic composite equipment production enterprises and 100-150 wood plastic composite material production enterprises

however, a wood plastic composite dealer in Zhejiang said that the export-oriented wood plastic composite industry is facing unprecedented difficulties. Affected by the European debt crisis, the export volume of the industry fell sharply year-on-year in 2011, and the number of dealers also decreased sharply. To this end, export enterprises have gradually shifted their main battlefield to the domestic market. Facing the fierce competition in the domestic market, many WPC manufacturers said that the diversification and serialization of products is an important way to resolve the difficulties of production and management. In addition to building materials, enterprises should speed up the application and development of wood plastic composites in interior decoration, furniture and other fields

more importantly, compared with foreign countries, a considerable number of wood plastic products in China are still at a relatively low-end level. At present, they are mainly outdoor planking and landscape materials, and their applications in high-end fields such as home decoration, furniture manufacturing and auto parts are almost blank. According to insiders, wood plastic composites, which originated in developed countries such as Europe and the United States, are widely used abroad with mature technology. The downstream fields involve construction, decoration, furniture, logistics, packaging, gardening, municipal administration, transportation and other industries. People can not only see the figure of wood plastic composites in outdoor villas, pavilions, green landscape and municipal facilities, but also in the fields of interior decoration materials, home furnishings, flooring, etc., wood plastic composites are also popular with consumers. In recent years, wood plastic composites have also entered high-end application fields such as auto parts. The Germans even used it in Mercedes Benz, BMW and other high-end cars, highlighting the development trend of high-end

for this situation, Liu Jia, Secretary General of the wood plastic composites Professional Committee of the China Association for comprehensive utilization of resources, said that it is a top priority for the wood plastic industry to further develop and expand the application market. In recent years, the industry has also made a lot of efforts in this regard

"over the years, in order to expand the influence and popularity of wood plastic products and speed up the pace of market promotion, we have racked our brains in the development of product varieties." Liu Jia told that in recent years, the WPC special committee has made full use of large-scale activities such as the Beijing Olympic Games, the Shanghai WorldExpo and the Guangzhou Asian Games to do enough work to promote WPC. At the same time, they are also constantly studying and discussing in the field of market application. At present, in addition to the fences, floors, pavilions, etc. of traditional park green space, flower beds, corridors and street lamps in municipal greening projects have also begun to use a large number of wood plastic composites. Some enterprises also make wood plastic composite materials into desk calendars, speaker shells, and even 2. A set of indoor space commemorative stamps are embedded around the instruments and equipment, and the trend of product refinement and high-end appears

Liu Jia said that if wood plastic composites can enter the furniture industry with an output value of more than trillion yuan, its pulling effect will be huge. He revealed to us that as long as there are products on the market, customers will purchase a large number of products, such as wood plastic injection hangers, desks and chairs for primary and secondary school students. "There is a lot of work to be done in the variety development of wood plastic products, and the prospect is very broad. Enterprises should not just focus on the 'floor'." Liu Jia said

only by improving standards can we promote development.

at present, China's wood plastic composite industry foundation has been formed, and its output has surpassed that of the United States to become the world's first. However, what is extremely disproportionate to China's status as the world's largest producer is the lack of standards for wood plastic products and confusion in management. This problem has been puzzling the development of this emerging industry since wood plastic composites entered China

"Standards are very important for the healthy and orderly development of an emerging industry. The formulation of standards should play at least two roles, one is to improve the technical level, and the other is to regulate the development of the industry. For the wood plastic industry, the existing two national standards not only do not play a positive role, but become a shelter for some inferior products. Among the various standards being formulated or approved, the standard centralized units are mixed and professional The level is low, and the management disorder is serious. " Liu Jia told

the two national standards referred to by Liu Jia are wood plastic decorative board and wood plastic floor issued and implemented in 2009. In addition, the industry standards that have been promulgated and implemented include the packaging industry standard "combined wood plastic pallet", the forestry industry standard "extruded wood plastic composite plate", and the light industry standard "polyethylene plastic wood composite profile for landscape". In addition, Guangdong Province has also promulgated local standards such as technical conditions for wood plastic composites and inspection and test methods for wood plastic composites. At present, there are 8 standards that have been approved, formulated, reviewed and pending approval, including: the physical and mechanical properties test of plastic wood composite products, the performance grade of plastic wood composite planking and guardrail system, the artificial climate aging test method of plastic wood composite materials, the physical and mechanical properties test of wood plastic composite products and the test of wood plastic composite materials, which are approved by the National Standards Commission; "Plastic wood composite wallboard for building decoration", "fiber material for wood plastic" and "evaluation method of physical and mechanical properties of wood plastic composite basic materials" in the charge of the Ministry of industry and information technology; Technical specification for the application of wood plastic composite board for construction, which is in the charge of the Ministry of housing and urban rural development; Wood plastic skirting line in charge of the State Forestry Administration

"from the above situation, it is not difficult to see that the phenomenon of multi participation and multi head management is very serious in the formulation of technical standards in the wood plastic composite industry." According to Liu Jia, at present, the formulation of wood plastic industry standards in all countries in the world is still in a gradual process. Driven by interests, the formulation of standards in China has been in a rush, resulting in multi head management, chaos, overlapping and duplication, waste of resources, as well as careless and pan profitable drafting and formulation of standards. Some drafting units have a low level of specialization, and the product indicators formulated are much lower than the product indicators of advanced enterprises in the current industry and the requirements of practical application, which has seriously disturbed the market order and affected the healthy development of the wood plastic composite industry

moreover, for export-oriented wood plastic flooring production enterprises, the low standard quality not only suppressed Chinese export enterprises and greatly compressed their profit margins, but also faced the potential threat of foreign "double anti"

to this end, the wood plastic composite Professional Committee of China Association for comprehensive utilization of resources recently submitted a report to the relevant departments on the construction of the wood plastic industry quality standard system, and put forward the construction ideas of the wood plastic industry quality standard system: first, we should clarify the guiding ideology of professional standard formulation, and second, we should establish a standardized wood plastic industry standardization system. To improve the construction of scientific standard system, we should follow the principle of gradual progress, from simple to complex, and gradually improve the basic standards, raw material standards, product standards, special equipment standards, testing methods and technical standards, construction specifications/procedures, so as to truly become the technical support of wood plastic composite material industry and a powerful weapon to regulate the development of the industry

in addition to the application fields and standards, wood plastic composites appear to be "disreputable" due to the lack of corresponding customs codes, and encounter many obstacles in export

because wood plastic composite is a new product, which is not included in the existing customs product code, many enterprises can only borrow plastic floors in Tongling City when declaring for export; 1035 rdquo; Coding in the scientific and technological innovation development plan. Because the product name contains the word "wood" and its appearance is similar to wood, it is often mistaken for wood products by the customs. It is required to fumigate according to the standards of wood products and provide the commodity inspection report to complete the relaxation mechanical property test report of the sample, which undoubtedly adds a lot of unnecessary trouble

Anhui Sentai Plastic Wood Group Co., Ltd. is a leading enterprise in the wood plastic composite industry. From 2008 to 2010, its products were applied to the projects of the main venue of the Beijing Olympic Games, the main venue of the Shanghai WorldExpo and the main venue of the Guangzhou Asian Games. In less than five years, the company's production lines have increased from the original two to more than 90 now. The annual production capacity of wood plastic composites has reached 40000 tons, and more than 85% of the products
