Global growth of the WPC industry: Topic of the eighth WPC-Conference in Vienna from 08-10.11

180 respondents from 27 countries were taking part in the WPC-conference, which was held the eighth time in Vienna. The conference could position itself as THE international meeting point of the WPC-industry.

Jon Nash from the British Ami Consulting forecasted 10% market growth for the European WPC-industry, as a result of the recently published market study. The growth forecast of the WPC-industry is orientated more to spending of “repair and maintenance” and is less dependent on the crises of the construction industry.

Asta Eder gave a picture of the quality and price of the WPC imports that are heavily dependent on distribution channel.
