Spread the love

The global composites market size is likely to reach USD 160 billion by the end of 2027 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027. The report offers an up-to-date analysis regarding the current market scenario, latest trends and drivers, market share analysis, potential challenges, profitability graph and the overall market environment.

A composite material consists of minimum two materials that combine to offer superior properties to those of the single constituents. Several component materials and numerous processes make composites enormously efficient and versatile. They usually offer more durable lighter, stronger solutions than conventional materials. Foremost driver for the development of composites is the combination of matrix and the reinforcement that can be altered to address the desired properties of a component. Composite materials attain the maximum of their advantageous properties from a strong bond among the stiff, strong reinforcement generally filaments or reinforcements with another geometrical shapes. The high usage of these composites is mainly influenced by cost thresholds, performance requirements, customer demand and regulations.

Growth Factors

Global composites market is largely influenced by ascending lightweight materials demand in many sectors like automotive, wind energy, transportation, aerospace and defense. Growing demand for composites in the automotive sector of emerging economies is predicted to lift the growth of global composite market during forecast period. Escalating prices of fuel have prompted the requirement for fuel-efficient vehicles. Composites are largely employed as the replacement for wood, aluminum, and steel due to its greater strength to weight ratio.

At present, against the backdrop of unsettled China/U.S. trade disagreements, the U.S. composites sector stays optimistic and endures to demonstrate positive growth. This mainly backed by stable growth of aerospace wind energy, and construction areas.
