Global Composites Market Is Expected to Reach US$ 101.88 Billion in 2025


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/14/2018 -- Growing demand for lightweight materials for automotive and aircraft components and escalating demand for wind energy is anticipated to drive the global composites market for the next few years. With the growing need for lightweight and high strength material in automotive, aerospace, and wind mill applications; demand for carbon fiber is constantly increasing. This is due to the exclusive properties of carbon fiber such as high tensile strength, stiffness, and temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion and weight. However, the expensive nature of carbon fiber is restricting its use in many applications. Carbon fiber composites currently cost nearly four times the cost of steel. Therefore, reducing the price of carbon fibers is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for composite manufacturers.

Owing to these reasons, the global composites market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 8.9% between 2017 and 2025 to reach a valuation of US$101.88 bn by the end of 2025 from US$47.32 bn in 2016.

Polymer Matrix Composite to Remain Key Product in Global Market

Composites market is segmented on the basis of product as polymer matrix composite, metal matrix composite, and ceramic matrix composite. In terms of value and volume, polymer matrix composite segment dominated the global composites market in 2016. It accounted for more than 95% volume share in 2016. Metal matrix composites offer some advantages over the polymer matrix composites such as greater resistance to degradation by organic fluids and higher operating temperatures. These composites are also more expensive and therefore offer restricted usage. Ceramic materials are naturally resistant to oxidation and deterioration at raised temperatures.

Automotive and transportation, construction, aerospace and defense, electrical and electronics, marine and oil and gas, wind energy, and others. Of these, the automotive and transportation application segment held more than 25% volume share in the global composites market in 2016. On the other hand, the aerospace and defense is another application segment which held relatively significant share in the global composites market in 2016. Composites also provide greater flexibility because the material can be tailored to meet the design requirements and because they offer significant weight advantages. Composite materials used in aircrafts are generally reinforced fibers or filaments embedded in a resin matrix. In terms of technology, layup process segment generated high sales in 2016. However, it is anticipated to lose its market share by 2025 on account of the growing demand for low-cost manufacturing processes.
