In this market, different types of UK composites such as glass composites and carbon composites are used as fiber type. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that carbon composites are expected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Increasing penetration of carbon composites in automotive and other weight sensitive applications will spur growth for carbon fiber over the forecast period from 2019 to 2024. 

Within this market, transportation will remain the largest market by value and volume due to increasing demand for lightweight materials to achieve higher fuel efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Wind energy is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth in offshore wind turbine installations.

By resin type, thermoset and thermoplastic resins are used to make composite parts. In thermoset, polyester composite is expected to remain the largest market by volume consumption. In thermoplastic resins, polyamide (PA) is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume consumption due to increasing demand in transportation and consumer goods applications.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the UK composites industry, include development of low-cost carbon fibers as well as high performance glass fiber, and development of rapid cure resin systems.
