The SMC BMC market in Asia Pacific was valued at US$ 1,193.82 million in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ 2,153.86 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

Sheet molding composite (SMC) or sheet molding compound is known as a ready to mold glass-fiber-reinforced with polyester material primarily used in compression molding.The sheet is provided by the manufacturers in the form of rolls weighing up to 1000 kg.

Alternatively, the resin coupled with related materials can be mixed on-site, according to the requirement to gain control over the chemistry and filler.This is manufactured by dispersing long strands of chopped fiber, basically glass fibers or carbon fibers on a bath of thermoset resin, such as polyester resin, vinyl ester resin, and epoxy resin.

The longer fibers present in SMC results in better strength compared to sheet and bulk molding compounds (BMC) products.

Based on resin type, the SMC BMC market is categorized into polyester and others.In 2018, the polyester segment dominated the SMC BMC market in Asia Pacific; however, the other resin type segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace during forecast period.
