The global composites industry is extremely fragmented, comprising raw material suppliers, compound makers, molders, fabricators, and composite materials end users. Lucintel’s study indicatesthat the Asia Pacific region is driving the global composites industry both in production and consumption volumes. In addition, many types of composite materials are increasing in market penetration across various segments in the region. Wind energy, aerospace, and transportation markets all are projected to thrive in APAC due to Chinese and Indian government initiatives in support of those industries.China is expected to drive the composites market and will represent more than half of the market for new wind turbines in the near future.



Lucintel’s research further revealsthat composite materials demand in the aerospace sector is expected to yield the strongest growth rate. APAC and North America are projected to drive the future growth of composite materials until 2016; Europe is expected to grow moderately in all applications, with aerospace being a stronger segment. Population growth, new infrastructural projects, urbanization, increase in the middle class population, and the green movement are anticipated to be growth drivers for the industry.
