Dublin, March 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Composites Market by Fiber Type (Glass Fiber Composites, Carbon Fiber Composites, Natural Fiber Composites), Resin Type (Thermoset Composites, Thermoplastic Composites), Manufacturing Process, End-use Industry and Region - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global composites market size is projected to grow from USD 113.6 billion in 2022 to USD 168.6 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2022 and 2027. Composites have outstanding qualities like as stiffness, strength, tenacity, density, thermal and electrical conductivity, fatigue resistance, and corrosion resistance. In light of the characteristics delivered by composites, traditional materials like aluminum steel are becoming less popular for high-performance applications.

Carbon fiber composites are the fastest-growing fiber type of composites market in terms of value.

Carbon fiber composites are projected to register the highest CAGR in terms of value between 2022 and 2027. Carbon fiber is twice as strong and 30% lighter than glass fiber and used in several end-use industries. In the automotive industry, carbon fiber-reinforced composites were first used in racing cars to reduce the vehicle's weight and are essential as a high-strength high-rigidity material for the monocoque frame to ensure the driver's safety. In F1 racing cars, carbon fiber-reinforced composites are used for all structural components.

Thermoplastic composites is the fastest-growing resin type of composites, in terms of value.

Thermoplastic composites are the fastest-growing resin type. The application of thermoplastic resins as a matrix material in fiber-reinforced composites has increased significantly in recent years. Thermoplastic resin has been used with continuous fiber to create structural composite products. The main advantage of this resin as a matrix material is that the composite formed can be reshaped and reformed, unlike thermoset resin. The composite formed is easily recyclable, and its use has increased significantly in the last decade.

Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) manufacturing process is the fastest-growing manufacturing process of composites, in terms of value.

RTM employs a flexible solid counter tool to compress the surface during the vacuum-assisted resin transfer process. This technique results in improved strength-to-weight ratios, higher laminate compression, and high glass to resin ratios. Large-surface-area, intricately shaped, and well-finished parts are the most common kind of components it is used to mold. This process is used to produce structures for automotive, construction and infrastructure, and aerospace applications. The growth prospects of the RTM process are high in the next five years due to increasing applications in the automotive and construction industries in emerging countries.

Wind energy is the fastest-growing end-use industry of composites, in terms of value.

Wind energy is predicted to expand with the fastest CAGR for the next five years. Great tensile strength provided by composite materials used in wind turbine construction enables manufacturers to achieve huge blades and high energy output. The volume of fiber reinforcement used in the wind blades accounts for about 70-75% by weight infused with epoxy or unsaturated polymer resins. Fiberglass also provides high tensile strength, helping manufacturers to achieve larger blades and higher energy output. Fiberglass has helped the wind energy industry grow by allowing wind turbines to work in the toughest environments due to its corrosion resistance properties.

Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing composites market.

In terms of value, the composites sector is predicted to exhibit the highest CAGR in Asia Pacific over the next five years. The region has huge growth potential for the electrical & electronics industry growth. The continuous rise in technologically advanced electronic products has resulted in high demand for lightweight and high-strength electronic products. This increasing demand for technologically advanced electronic products for various applications has led to innovations and developments in the composites industry of Asia Pacific.
