Global Long Fiber Thermoplastics Market: Drivers and Restraints

Long fiber thermoplastics offer better strength and are characterized by light-weight, which helps in enhancing fuel efficiency. In recent times, there has been a surge in the automobile industry leading to an increasing demand for light-weight manufacturing materials. This has highly contributed to the growth of global long fiber thermoplastics market.

Further, long fiber thermoplastic finds several applications in end-use industries owing to its ability to offer freedom of design. Moreover, it is recyclable and offers several benefits over the conventional manufacturing materials. This has led to a significant rise in its production, thereby propelling the long fiber thermoplastics market.

LFT’s high temperature resistance and ability to adapt to several fabrication techniques has led to a spur in the market’s growth. In addition to this, LFTs are increasingly used as substitutes for metals owing to their cost-efficiency. This has impacted the global long fiber thermoplastics market favorably and fostered its growth. Additionally, favorable initiatives taken by governments and high disposable income in emerging economies has driven the market’s growths too.

However, along with the drivers, there are a few hindrances that may thwart the global long fiber market’s growth. Availability of substitutes and lack of awareness regarding the benefits of long fiber thermoplastics in underdeveloped countries may cause a shortfall in the market. Nonetheless, researchers are working on enhancing the thermal and mechanical properties of long fiber thermoplastics. These developments will increase the efficiency of LFTs thereby, facilitating an expansion in the long fiber thermoplastics market.
