Growth opportunities in Global Composites Industry: Lucintel anticipates growth of end-use industries, and demand of high strength and light-weight materials to catalyze growth within the next five years

   January 18 2017

The global composites market is anticipated to witness good growth with a CAGR of 3.5% over the next five years. The major drivers of growth for this market are double-digit growth in wind energy and strong growth in aerospace market. Increasing urban population and high growth in the building and infrastructure development are other major drivers.


Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global composites industry and presents its findings in “Growth Opportunities in Global Composites Industry 2016-2021.”


The Asian region, which has already emerged as the largest growth area for the composites industry, is expected to further consolidate its leadership. Asia is anticipated to have a market share of approximately 47.7% by volume in 2021. North America is expected to be second with an estimated market share of 26.2% in 2021. Nevertheless, comparatively lower levels of per capita composites consumption is anticipated to help high growth markets in BRIC countries sustain momentum for a longer period. On a global basis, the composites industry is forecast to grow by 3.5% in 2016. Improving economic conditions in major countries, such as the US and Europe are expected to propel the global composites market once again towards strong growth.


Lucintel’s research further reveals that demand for composite materials in the aerospace sector is expected to witness the maximum growth among all sectors. Construction and transportation are anticipated to witness good growth in the next five years. Carbon fiber composite applications are expected to grow more rapidly compared to glass fiber applications.


In the future, Lucintel expects higher market fragmentation for the industry due to the emerging economies coming into play. The future market is expected to be highly competitive, and companies with innovative capabilities can be anticipated to thrive and gain market share.


Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of low-cost carbon fibers for automotive, wind and industrial applications. Development of high performance glass fiber and shorter cycle time of resin system is other emerging trends in composites industry.
