Composites Market Driven by Steady Growth of Automotive, Wind Energy Sectors, says TMR

Posted July 26, 2017 by PARESHTMR

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.

The global composites market is dominated by companies such as Owens Corning, Hexcel Corporation, Toray Industries, and TPI Composites Inc. While these and other multinational players exert significant dominance in the global composites market, the composites industry is likely to feature a large number of smaller players in the coming years due to the diversity of areas in which composite industry players can specialize in. The novel nature of the composites sector has also aided its growth, as the commercial potential of each aspect of the market remains high. Thus, smaller regional players are likely to have a say in the proceedings in the global composites market in the coming years.

According to Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global composites market was valued at US$47.3 bn in 2016 and is likely to rise to close to US$102 bn by 2025 at a robust CAGR of 8.9% between 2017 and 2025. Product innovation is likely to remain the most important competitive strategy in the global composites market in the coming years, while the market’s progression towards consolidation will also lead to a number of mergers and acquisitions.

Booming Automotive, Wind Energy Sectors Drive Demand from Composites Market

The steady growth of the automotive industry has emerged as a key driver for the global composites market due to the widespread use of various composites in automotive design and the high commercial potential of the automotive industry due to its growing presence in emerging regions. The lightness provided by composites has become a major feature in automotive design, as lighter vehicle construction helps reduce its fuel emissions as well as helping produce better engine performance. These attributes are likely to remain important to the automotive industry due to tightening environmental regulations across the world, enabling consistent demand from the global composites market.

The automotive and transportation sector accounted for more than 25% of the global composites market in 2016 and is likely to remain a leading contributor in the coming years due to the rising demand for transportation in emerging economies, where the rapid pace of urbanization has driven the demand from a wide-ranging network of ancillary industries.

The wind energy sector has come to the fore at a rapid pace in recent years due to the growing awareness about the unsustainability of the conventional energy usage structure based on fossil fuels. This has led to growing demand from the global composites market due to the benefits provided by lighter construction materials in maximizing the energy output from wind energy generation units. The growing government support to alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power in emerging regions is thus likely to be a major driver for the global composites market in the coming years.
