By Application, the Residential segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024.

In the composite decking market, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, derived from recycled sources, is the preferred material due to its cost-effectiveness, ease of production, and vast availability. HDPE, commonly sourced from old shopping bags, offers near-zero moisture absorption (<0.02% after 24 hours) and exceptional chemical resistance, making it an ideal choice for manufacturing composite decking. This material's durability and resistance to potent acids like sulfuric, hydrochloric, and nitric, ensure the production of long-lasting, high-performance decking solutions.

By Type, Polyethylene  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024.

The residential construction sector in the US, Europe, and APAC is experiencing significant growth, driven by increasing disposable incomes and urbanization. In APAC, countries like China, India, Malaysia, and Indonesia are witnessing a surge in demand for new residences and infrastructure. Governments in the region have responded with initiatives to support this growth. Additionally, the recovery of the global housing market in the US, Canada, Germany, and Spain is fueling demand for composite decking. The US residential building industry has particularly benefited from record-low mortgage rates and rising housing demand, leading to expansionary monetary policy.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024.

The composite decking market in North America has experienced significant growth between 2010 and 2021. With the construction of approximately 18,000 more single-family homes featuring decks during this period, the demand for affordable and durable composite decking alternatives has surged. Homeowners are investing in renovations and improvements to enhance their living spaces and increase property value. This trend is anticipated to continue, driving the composite decking market's growth throughout the forecast period.
