Epoxy Composite Market by Fiber Type (Glass, Carbon), Manufacturing Process (Lay-up, Compression Molding, Resin Injection, Resin Transfer Molding, Filament Winding, and Pultrusion), End-use Industry, and Region - Global Forecast to 2021
“The epoxy composite market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.34% during the forecast period”
The epoxy composite market is projected to reach USD 33.06 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.34% between 2016 and 2021. The key factor expected to drive the growth of the market is the increasing use of epoxy composite in the wind energy industry. In addition, the increasing demand for materials with superior properties, such as lightweight, high strength, and durability is expected to boost the demand for epoxy composite in the automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense, and construction industries. However, high volatility in the raw material prices and issues related to recyclability can restrain the growth of the market.
“Wind energy is expected to be the fastest-growing end-user industry segment of the epoxy composite market, in terms of value and volume.”
The wind energy industry segment led the epoxy composite market, by value and volume. The superior properties exhibited by epoxy composites are expected to drive the growth of the market in the wind energy industry. Epoxy composites enhance strength & rigidity and reduce the weight of wind blades. These composites provide great strength-to-weight capability compared to other traditional materials, and hence, facilitate more efficient designs and better fabrication. The composites are mostly used in wind blades, nacelles, and spar caps.
“Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for epoxy composite”
Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for epoxy composite during the forecast period. The key factors expected to fuel the growth of the market in the region are contribute to this growth are the increasing demand from the wind energy, automotive & transportation, sporting goods, aerospace & defense, and construction industries and increasing urbanization and industrialization in the region. Lightweight, easy to construct, corrosion resistance, and high mechanical strength are some of the properties, which are projected to drive the demand for epoxy composites in Asia-Pacific.
