The layup process for manufacturing composites led the market and accounted for about 34.7% share of the revenue in 2020. Increasing production of boats, wind turbine blades, and architectural moldings are expected to fuel the growth of the layup process segment in the global composites market over the forecast period.

Advancements in the filament winding process have created a wide scope for products including golf club shafts, automobile drive shafts, small aircraft fuselages, spacecraft structures, pressure vessels like firefighter oxygen bottles, and others.

The growing demand for lightweight components in automobile manufacturing is expected to aid the demand for the injection molding process. Moreover, a rise in demand for high-strength components in aerospace and marine industries is likely to support the market in the estimated time.

The pultrusion process is an efficient method for manufacturing fiber reinforced composite products. The process can be used with thermoplastic matrices like Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), and Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT).

Compression molding is a technique of molding, wherein the material is preheated and placed in an open and heated mold cavity. The process is widely used for making larger flat or curved composite parts in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries.

By End-use Analysis

The automotive and transportation segment led the market and accounted for about 21.2% share of the revenue in 2020. This segment is likely to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. 

Growing demand for advanced electronics in the household as well as industrial applications is expected to ascend the demand for composites. The most common applications for composites in the electrical and electronics category are terminal boxes, lamp housings, electrical enclosures.

The use of composites in the construction and infrastructure sector is growing rapidly due to their increasing usage in refabrication and retrofit applications. These are used in the construction of windows, doors, non-structural gratings, bridge components, long-span roof structures, paneling, complete bridge systems, and furniture, and other interiors.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for about 46.1% share of revenue in 2020. Robust automobile manufacturing industries in the region coupled with a high prevalence of electrical and electronic component manufacturers in the region are likely to upscale the demand.

Demand in North America is driven by the robust growth of aerospace and defense, and wind energy harnessing industries. In addition, the automobile manufacturing industries in the U.S. have exhibited a high penetration of composites for the production of critical automobile components and are likely to drive the demand over the estimated time.

Central and South America is one of the most challenging markets for composites. Political and economic instability in the region has had a notable impact on the industry growth over last decade.
