Background:
The global composites market is anticipated to witness good growth with a CAGR of 4.3% over the next five years. The composites market is expected to experience substantial growth in future with new developments in various sectors.Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global composites industry and presents its findings in ?Growth Opportunities in Global Composites Industry 2015-2020.?The Asian region, which has already emerged as the largest growth area for the composites industry, is expected to further consolidate its leadership. Asia is anticipated to have a market share of approximately 50.7% by volume in 2020. North America is expected to be second with an estimated market share of 28.9% in 2020. Nevertheless, comparatively lower levels of per capita composites consumption is anticipated to help high growth markets in BRIC countries sustain momentum for a longer period. On a global basis, the composites industry is forecast to grow by 4.5% in 2015. Improving economic conditions in major countries, such as the US and Europe are expected to propel the global composites market once again towards strong growth.Lucintel's research further reveals that demand for composite materials in the aerospace sector is expected to witness the maximum growth among all sectors. Construction and transportation are anticipated to witness good growth in the next five years. Carbon fiber composite applications are expected to grow rapidly compared to glass fiber applications.In the future, Lucintel expects higher market fragmentation for the industry due to the emerging economies coming into play.
