China's plastic building materials industry has become the second largest pillar industry in the plastics industry, second only to packaging, at an average annual growth rate of more than 15%. With the acceleration of urbanization and the continuous growth of infrastructure projects, China's three major plastic building materials, including profiles, pipes and plates, have entered a period of steady growth, and some green building materials have begun to accelerate the pace of development, which is conducive to accelerating the promotion of green buildings. revolution.
China is a country with shortage of resources. The development of green building plastics has specific economic and social significance. In recent years, domestic green building plastics have been greatly developed, showing a good momentum of development. Experts pointed out that non-toxic, harmless and pollution-free plastic building materials will become the hot spot of market demand in this century.
On May 6, 2012, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development jointly issued the “Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the Development of Green Buildings in China”, proposing that by 2020, green buildings will account for more than 30% of new buildings. This is the first time in China. The development goals of green buildings are presented in the form of official documents. The reporter interviewed many industry insiders and learned that the country's push for green buildings will promote the transformation and upgrading of downstream industries such as building materials, chemicals and new energy. At the same time, the industry is also looking forward to a double breakthrough in green building materials in terms of technology and policy support.
Green building meets relevant evaluation standards, maximizing energy saving, land saving, water saving, material saving, environmental protection and pollution reduction throughout the life cycle, providing people with healthy, applicable and efficient use space, harmoniously coexisting with nature. building.
In 2012, the global economy will gradually recover, and the development speed of the construction industry will start to slowly pick up. The development prospects of the global construction industry are promising, the consumption of building plastic materials will grow steadily, and the growth rate in emerging markets in Asia and South America will be faster.
The data shows that the main application areas of building plastics are plastic doors and windows, plastic pipes, plastic flooring and so on. Due to the advantages of light weight and low cost, architectural plastics are widely used in buildings. According to statistics, the annual consumption of plastics in the construction industry accounts for about 1/4 of the total output of plastics, ranking first in the application of plastics.
According to expert analysis, the building plastics market has great potential, and the development of building plastics cannot be delayed. On the one hand, with the gradual recovery of the global economy, the development speed of the construction industry has gradually begun to slowly pick up. Affected by this, the demand for building plastics will gradually be released. In fact, in some emerging market countries such as Asia and South America, the demand for construction plastics has rebounded significantly. In particular, wood plastic meets the demand for materials. Annual growth rate of 13%, generating revenue of 2015 billion US dollars. In this regard, NAHB chief economist David Crowe said: "As the economic recovery, consumers are encouraged to remodel their homes, which will promote the development of plastic products such as wood-plastic composites and siding."
Wood-plastic composite material is a new material that can replace wood and material. This material not only combines the dual advantages of wood and plastic in performance, but also has significant low-carbon environmental protection characteristics. After more than ten years of independent development, it is gradually developing into an emerging industry. Especially in the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period in which the energy conservation and emission reduction efforts are continuously strengthened and the circular economy is developing vigorously, the wood-plastic composite material industry with the advantages of raw material resources, plasticized products, and environmentally friendly renewables is in line with sustainable development. The megatrends highlight the growing potential for development.

Today, all walks of life are promoting "energy saving and emission reduction", and the construction industry is no exception. China has launched a number of building energy conservation policies, and "green" has become the trend of the construction market. Green building plastics face great opportunities for development, among which building insulation plastics are the most worthy of attention.
