Thermoplastics are non-toxic in nature, weldable, recyclable for other processes, and have augmented toughness and are less expensive. A comprehensive range of thermoplastic resins are employed in composites including PET, PVC and polypropylene. Thermoplastics resins are preferably utilized on account of their improved impact resistance and capacity to reform than thermosetting resins.

Manufacturing process Insights

Out of various manufacturing process involved in the global composites market, layup manufacturing process emerge as leading process with around 34.1% share of the total revenue generated in 2021. This method is very frequently employed for manufacturing of composite. This process includes insertion of layers of composite fiber in an order with the help of matrix of resin and hardener. Then layup is permitted to cool at room temperature. At present, rising production of boats, wind turbine blades and architectural moldings is expected to spur substantially the demand of layup process segment.

Regional Insights

The composites sector is an economic force that energies the American economy. This industry contributes around USD 22 billion to the U.S. economy annually. Further, as per 2016 UK Composites Strategy, the UK composites product market with nearby 1500 British companies engaged was assessed at around Euro 2.3 billion in 2015, and is projected to reach around Euro 12 billion by 2030.

Composites Market Share, By Region, 2021 (%)

Asia Pacific dominated the global composite market in 2021, with around 45.5% revenue share of the overall market. This dominance is due to proliferating demand from different end-use sectors of major countries such as Japan, India and China. Governments of various nations such as Canada, Japan, the U.S., South Korea, China, India Mexico, and Brazil have suggested greenhouse gas emission and fuel economy standards for light commercial vehicles/light trucks and passenger vehicles. These suggested regulations in these nations are likely to support the requirement for composites from the automotive segment.
