July 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Composites Market Growth & Trends

The global composites market size is expected to reach USD 160.54 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 7.6% over the forecast period. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for lightweight materials in various industries such as wind energy, automotive & transportation, and aerospace and defense.

Rapid industrialization in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific and ascending demand for wind energy are factors expected to boost the market growth. High product demand from the automotive industry is also projected to drive market expansion. Increasing fuel prices have prompted the want for fuel-efficient vehicles. This factor is projected to positively influence growth.

Ascending demand for customized components in automotive, aircraft, and sports industries have urged the market participants to integrate their portfolio with downstream production technologies. SGL Group formed a joint venture with Kumpers GmbH & Co. KG for utilizing advanced automated processing technologies to develop braided carbon fiber.

The market is moving toward fragmentation on account of the presence of a large number of global and regional players. Major players have a strong distribution network and product brands in the global market. The ongoing R&D activities present some growth and expansion opportunities to market players.
