“Increasing demand for lightweight and environmentally friendly materials to drive the NFCs market”

The Natural Fiber Composites (NFCs) market is projected to reach USD 6.50 billion by 2021, expected to register a CAGR of 11.68% between 2016 and 2021. The major drivers stimulating the growth of the NFCs market are increasing use of natural fiber composites in construction and automotive industries due to their high stiffness-to-weight ratio, lightweight and recyclability.

“Automotive is the most lucrative application in the NFCs market.”

The key drivers of NFCs in automotive industry are lightweight, higher fuel efficiency, lower energy consumption, excellent safety & acoustic features with recyclability and government regulations. In order to comply with regulatory norms, automotive manufacturers such as Toyota Motor Corp. (Japan), Ford Motor Company (U.S.), Mercedes-Benz (Germany) have started using NFCs to manufacture automotive components such as seatbacks, parcel shelves, boot linens, among other parts. Thus, automotive application would be the most profitable investment pocket for stakeholders.

“Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market of NFCs.”

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for NFCs in the next five years. The development in infrastructure facilities, investment made by NFCs manufacturers, and capacity expansions by various leading players are a few factors leading to the growth of the market of NFCs in this region. China leads the market of NFCs in Asia-Pacific. Its consumption of natural fiber composites has grown remarkably due to growth in the construction and electrical & electronics industries.
