Over the years, the level of demand for SFT has steadily increased with a number of automotive, electrical, and consumer goods applications using SFT. SFT is rapidly gaining acceptance as an alternative material to metals, wood, and plastics, and is becoming more widely recognized for its better characteristics.
Companies that produce SFT are approaching market opportunities with starkly different strategies. In a major new research report, “Worldwide SFT Competitive Analysis and Leadership Study 2014,” Lucintel's analysts examine and profile six of the world’s leading SFT producers. This report offers a full competitive analysis ranging from target markets to product mapping and from selling strategies to production capabilities.

Lucintel built profiles of each competitor based on the following criteria:
- Company Overview
o Company Description and Business Segments
o Company Statistics
- SFT Business Overview
o SFT Business Segments
o Global SFT Operations
o Key Differentiators and Strengths
- Products and Product Positioning
o Product Line Overview
o Product Mapping
o Product Positioning in Market Segments
