Trends, opportunities and forecast in sheet molding compound market to 2023 by end use industries (transportation, electrical and electronics, construction, and others), by fiber type (glass fiber and carbon fiber,), by resin type (polyester, vinylester and others), by density (low density, mid and high density) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Rest of the World)

The future of the global sheet molding compound (SMC) market looks good with opportunities in the transportation, electrical & electronics, and construction industries. The global SMC market is expected to reach an estimated $3.2 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 3.1% from 2018 to 2023. The major growth drivers for this market are increasing use of lightweight materials in transportation, and performance benefits, such as lower corrosion in construction and higher thermal resistance in E&E industries.

Emerging trends which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the SMC industry include the increasing penetration of carbon fiber-based SMC, development of low density SMC, and introduction of Direct-SMC.
