Increasing Demand in Emerging Economies to Boost the Composite Materials Market
The Composite Materials Market size was accounted for from USD 72.12 billion in the year 2020 to USD 128.82 billion in 2028, at a CAGR of 7.52%.
A composite asset is a compound of two or more compounds that have different physical and chemical properties. Once combined, they form a special material to perform a specific function, for example, to be strong, light, or electric resistant. They can also improve stamina and strength. They develop the structures of their basic materials and work in many cases.
The growing demand for advanced in-house electronics and industrial applications is estimated to increase the demand for compounds. The most common applications for combination in the electrical and electronic category are terminal boxes, electrical enclosures, plugs, lamp houses, sockets, and power distribution components. The compounds offer benefits such as fuel savings in the transportation sector because the components are much lighter in weight allowing for an increase in fuel capacity. The ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide has had a significant impact on the market as the major economy has stopped trading. In addition, the need for integrated materials in all end-of-life industries such as construction, automotive, and aerospace has been reduced. Aerospace and the defense of being one of the key buyers of the consortium saw the worst and immediate consequences of this epidemic. The aviation industry has suffered serious consequences due to the closure of international and domestic borders. Leading growth drivers in this market are increasing the need for lightweight materials within the need for rust and chemical-resistant materials in the construction and plumbing & piping industry, aerospace & defense, and automotive industry; electricity resistance and the need for reduced flame retardants in the electronics and electronics industry.
Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest region in terms of volume and value; the region is expected to have the highest growth in the forecast period due to growth in transportation, construction, and electrical and electronic components. The main causes of growth are automotive production growth, high construction growth, and infrastructure development. Demand in North America is driven by strong growth in aerospace and defense, as well as wind energy industries. In addition, the automotive industry in the US has shown a high penetration of compounds for the integration of key automotive components and is likely to drive demand over a limited period of time.
Growing demand from the automotive sector, rising international security budgets, increased demand for the industry are key factors influencing the European market. In addition, growing awareness about the benefits offered by retailers, among manufacturers, is expected to develop a new impetus for market growth in the region. Central and South America are one of the most challenging markets for the combination. Political and economic instability in the region has had a significant impact on the growth of the industry over the past decade. The increase in investment in the automotive industry in the region will likely support the demand.
With the rapid growth of the economy and industry, developing countries such as China & India are expected to grow rapidly, due to the need for GFRP and CFRP. In addition, in order to improve, maintain existing infrastructure and build the latest cities with water treatment plants, the demand for connections in the construction and infrastructure industry as well as pipelines and tanks is predicted to grow during the forecast period.
The high cost of compounds has been an important point of concern along with the growth of their use in operating systems. Many aerospace composite applications have been acquired, but due to cost restrictions, sales of these applications are yet to begin. Due to the high cost of R&D, developing low-cost technology is a challenge for all key manufacturers and researchers.
