European Construction Market for Composite Applications Poised for Growth during 2013-2018 after Decline


   January 2 2014
The European construction market for composites applications witnessed decline during the last five years due to the decline in the residential construction market, weak GDP, and decreased penetration. The market is expected to recover over the next five years and composite raw material shipment in the European construction market is expected to reach $512 million by 2018. A moderate share of this increase can be attributed to the rising cost of raw materials which increase the need at some point, to pass a portion of these costs to the end consumers or risk raising prices in a marketplace with markedly high competition.
Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the of the European construction market and has just published a comprehensive research report entitled "Opportunities for Composites in the European Construction Market 2013-2018: Trends, Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis.”
According to Lucintel, applications such as FRP panel, bathtub, door, swimming pool, and rebar will drive the growth for composites during the forecast period. Much of the growth in these markets can be attributed to increasing energy efficiency requirements from consumers (doors, windows), escalating need for anti-corrosive applications (rebar, bridge deck) and greater focus on total lifecycle cost of end products as compared to those manufactured from materials such as steel and aluminium (utility poles).
The composites industry in European construction will continue to remain as one of the largest users of commodity grade unsaturated polyester resin and glass fiber in Europe despite the slowdown in 2012. This combination of polyester resin and glass fiber along with commonly used fillers will constitute greater than 97% of all raw materials used by volume as specific materials (such as carbon fiber, epoxy, vinyl ester, and polyurethane) are continuing to have little on the European construction market. For the next five years, the bath industry (showers, spas, whirlpools, spas, and traditional bath tubs) will remain the largest single purchaser of raw materials in the construction market. However, during the period the bath market will  be stable relative to other faster growing markets including swimming pool.
This research report contains market size estimates for the top 12 composite applications in the European construction market, Porter's five forces analysis for composites opportunities in the market, competitive analysis for various applications, trends and forecast for composites applications, growth drivers and many other elements, all of which can help you make confident business decisions in this globally competitive marketplace.
