Market Overview

The wooden decking market is projected to register a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

  • Replacement by composite decking is expected to hinder the growth of the market studied.
  • Increasing awareness regarding wooden decking in emerging nations is likely to act as an opportunity during the forecast period.
