By fiber type, glass fiber, carbon fiber, and aramid fiber are the major fibers utilized to manufacture composites parts for various end use industries. Carbon fiber is expected to show above average growth during the forecast period. Increasing penetration of carbon composites in commercial aircraft and automotive are expected to spur growth for carbon fiber over the forecast period from 2017 to 2022.

By resin type, thermoset and thermoplastic resins are used to make composites parts. In thermoset, polyester composite is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume consumption. In thermoplastic, polypropylene (PP) is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume consumption and majorly used in transportation, construction and consumer goods applications.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest region by value and volume and is also expected to experience the highest growth over the forecast period because of growth in construction, transportation, and the electrical and electronics segments. The major drivers for growth are increasing automotive production, high growth in construction, and infrastructure development.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of low-cost carbon fibers, high performance glass fiber and shorter cycle time of resin system.
