There is a little doubt that composite materials are rapidly becoming a mainstream technology within many industries, from aerospace to wind energy. And as demand for more composite applications increases in the coming years, composite materials price movements will experience fluctuations due to changes in supply and demand, energy costs, and production capacity. Knowledge of price changes and the underlying reasons for these changes will produce advantages for those that have greater insights into price movements. Similarly, those that do not have these insights will be placed at a disadvantage according to, "Composite Materials Price Trends, Forecast, and Analysis" an informative new research report from Lucintel.

This critical information offers readers an enormous amount of actionable content by comparing prices of various types of raw materials used in the composites industry as well as prices of competing materials such as aluminum, steel, lumber and thermoplastics. The price data were collected from material suppliers as well as fabricators / molders, including boat builders, pultruders, sporting goods manufacturers, pipe and tank manufacturers, aerospace companies and many others.

Created through rigorous quantitative and qualitative research and analysis, Lucintel accurately provides historical movement in prices and points to possible future price direction. In summary, no other research organization has collected and analyzed such a va
