Plastic decking, primarily formulated from recycled plastic material or virgin (new) plastic does not require any filler material. Over the years, it has become highly popular in the construction industry for crafting residential decking boards, window lineal, rails and balusters, door components, fencing, and sliding. Going forward too, it is slated to sustain its growth momentum on the back of its durability. Depending upon the type of polymer, the global market for plastic decking can be segmented into PVC, HDPE, LDPE, and PP categories. Of these, HDPE and LDPE are anticipated to hold a sway over the market with maximum share. This is because HDPE exhibit high strength and stiffness on account of which they find application in the residential sector and LDPE contains certain strength-enhancing additives useful for manufacturing decking products.
