What are the key trends in the Global Composites Market?

The rising demand for the composites from the aerospace industry is expected to shape new market opportunities in the foreseeable future. The leading aircraft manufacturers are putting efforts to enlarge the thermoplastic structures for both the commercial aircrafts and business jets. For instance, in February 2020Marshall Advanced Composites received a contract of around UUS$10.67 million to produce cockpit trim panels for the Lockheed Martin’s Super Hercules Airlifter for the upcoming five years. Moreover, the sustainable use of composites in the manufacturing of marine structures is an emerging trend in the global composites market. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, the new powerboat sales increased by 4% from 2017 to 2018. The growing production of larger boats powered by the outboard engines and surging usage of carbon fibers, 3D printing, and epoxy resin is significantly boosting the demand for the composites across the globe.

What are the key challenges in the Global Composites Market?

The implementation of the strict government policies and regulations pertaining to environment protection and recycling has led to an increase in the restriction and the costs of disposal. The rising usage of composite materials is resulting in increased landfills. Around 90% of the wastes in UK goes into landfills. The rising pollution and growing volume of plastic wastes has forced the law makers to implement strict regulations pertaining to recycling and disposal of wastes. Furthermore, the high costs associated with the composites have increased the concerns over the usage of composites in structural applications. The increased cycle times, high costs of manufacturing, and rising R&D costs has led to the non-realization of the real potential of the composites. There are many applications of the composites in the aerospace has been discovered but owing to the cost restraints the commercialization of these applications is yet to start. Therefore, development of low-cost technologies is and strict government regulations pertaining to the environment protection are the major factors that may hinder the growth of the market.

Europe Forecast the Strongest Growth Rate during the Forecast Year (2021-2030)

Europe composites market is driven by the rising demand for the electric vehicles and rising adoption of sustainable transportation facilities. Moreover, the growing demand for the composites in the electronics industry and aerospace industry is expected to boost the growth of the Europe composites market in the forthcoming years.
