In this market, composite tools are made either from glass fiber or carbon fiber mixed with a suitable matrix (resin), such as epoxy, BMI, and others. On the basis of its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the glass fiber based composites tools will remain the largest material segment and it is also expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period.

Within this market, wind energy will remain the largest application for composites tools market due to increasing wind MW installation in US and Asia Pacific region and increase in length of blade. Composite tools for aerospace application is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period. Composite tools provide lightweight, dimensionally accurate, and affordable tooling for various applications in aerospace, such as primary and secondary structure.

North America will remain the largest region and it is also expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth in wind energy, aerospace, and marine industry.

An emerging trend, which has a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, includes increased use of metal/composites combination materials for tooling.  Gurit, Solvey cytec, Hexcel Corporation, Airtech Advanced Materials Group, and Toray are among the major manufacturers of the composite materials for global tooling market.
