Description


Reinforced plastics are a derived class of materials that combine plastic and fibers and complement each other for improved structural and physical properties. Plastics have temperature limitations and low modulus properties, whereas fibers have high modulus. Plastics reinforced with fibers have high modulus, temperature resistance and other improved properties. Major polymers used are vinylester, epoxy and polyester resins, and phenol formaldehyde resins. Customized products are offered in the market with different fiber content and resins according to their applications. The most commonly used fibers include glass, carbon, metal, asbestos and cellulose.

Free Market Analysis


Reinforced plastics comprise resins that are reinforced with fibers to improve structural and physical properties. In terms of application, reinforced plastics market has been segmented into automotive, building & construction, wind energy, aerospace & aviation, marine, electrical & electronics and others. Based on product type, reinforced plastics can be classified as carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), glass fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP), aramid fiber reinforced plastics and others. 

Rising demand for reinforced plastics from automotive and building & construction applications is anticipated to drive the global reinforced plastics market. Additionally, increasing demand for reinforced plastics from aerospace & aviation application is boosting the global reinforced plastics market. However, volatility in prices and supply of raw materials is expected to hamper market growth. Rising demand from wind energy application is likely to provide immense opportunities for market players. Furthermore, research & development activities are being carried out in the field of bio-composites based reinforced plastics. This is expected to boost the reinforced plastics market in the next few years.

Automotive emerged as the largest application segment in the global reinforced plastics market in 2012. It is anticipated to expand at the highest growth rate among all applications. Rising demand for automotives in Asia Pacific and for lightweight vehicles in Europe is estimated to drive the reinforced plastics market. Usage of reinforced plastics reduces weight of the vehicle. This, in turn, leads to improved fuel efficiency. Building & construction was the second-largest application segment of the global reinforced plastics market. Usage of reinforced plastics in aerodynamically efficient blades in wind energy helps improve efficiency of wind turbines. Aerospace & aviation application is projected to grow at a CGAR of 6.6% from 2013 to 2019 due to increasing consumer preference for flights over other modes of transport. Additionally, demand for reinforced plastics in this application is driven by governmental regulations regarding reduction of CO2 emissions per flying hour. 

GFRP is the most widely used product type globally. Due to low cost and availability, GFRP is preferred in most applications such as automotive, electrical & electronics and building & construction. Usage of CFRP is increasing in wind turbine blades and aircraft parts due to its low weight and design flexibility that allows manufactures to design aerodynamically efficient products. The global CFRP market is anticipated to reach USD 2,469.7 million by 2019. Other fiber-reinforced plastics include natural fibers, boron, graphite and metal fibers reinforced with different resins. North America dominated the global reinforced plastics market due to high demand from automotive and electrical & electronics applications. Asia Pacific followed North America in terms of consumption. It is estimated to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Major manufacturing companies based in the U.S. and Europe are shifting their manufacturing bases to China due to abundant availability of raw materials and cheap labor. China was the largest producer of glass that helps in reducing the overall cost of production of GFRP, which accounts for more than 89% of the global reinforced plastic consumption in 2012. Europe is expected to experience moderate growth rate in terms of consumption and demand for CFRP from wind energy and automotive industries is likely to drive the overall market. 

The global reinforced plastics market is highly fragmented, with no clear leader. Many small China-based players export high volumes of reinforced plastics to Europe and North America. Few buyers of reinforced plastics, primarily in automotive and aerospace industries, are integrating backward in order to obtain constant supply of reinforced plastics at low cost. Major industry participants in reinforced plastics market include BASF SE, Celanese, Huntsman Corporation, DuPont, PPG Industries, Binani Industries, Ahlstrom, Haysite Reinforced Plastics, Solvay and Kemrock Industries.
