Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/05/2019 -- Sheet molding compound (SMC) is both a process and reinforced composite material. The composite is a "ready to mold" glass or carbon fiber reinforced polyester material primarily used in compression molding. The SMC sheets are manufactured by dispersing long strands of chopped glass fibers or carbon fibers on a bath of polyester resin, vinylester resin or epoxy resin.
A key variable in the performance of SMC producers is raw material costs, specifically the speed at which any increase can be passed through to customers. The materials of SMC include SMC-specific unsaturated polyester resin, glass fiber, carbon fiber, etc. The prices of SMC-specific unsaturated polyester resin follow the oil price, with a lag, and movements can inject volatility into producer margins. In general, most producers structure the majority of their contracts to include a 'pass through' clause that smooth the impact.
The global Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) market is valued at 1880 million US$ in 2018 is expected to reach 2520 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 3.8% during 2019-2025.
