In this market, fiber (glass and carbon fiber) and resin (polypropylene and polyamide) are used for producing of long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT) compound as well as direct-LFT (D-LFT) based part. Lucintel forecasts that LFRT will remain the largest segment by value and volume due to increasing demand in the automotive and industrial application. The D-LFT segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period due to the growing in-line part fabrication in automotive industry.

Within LFT market, automotive will remain the largest segment and it is also expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period supported by growing automotive production and increasing focus on thermoplastic resin based composite materials. Door module, front end module, instrumental panel, running board, and underbody shield are some of the major applications of LFT in the automotive industry.

By fiber type, glass fiber based LFT will remain the largest segment by value and volume. Carbon fiber based LFT is expected to witness the highest growth in the forecast period supported by its high performance characteristics. By resin type, polypropylene resin based LFT will remain the largest segment by value and volume over the forecast period.

Europe will remain the largest region for LFT market due to growing demand for lightweight and environmentally sustainable composite materials. Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period due to the growing automotive production and increasing focus on lightweight composite materials. 

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the LFT market, include, development of polyamide based LFT/D-LFT for structural application and increasing use of bio based materials in LFT. SABIC, Celanese, RTP Company TechnoCompound, and Chisso/JNC Corporation are among the major suppliers of LFT.
