Plastic Composite Molding Market

Plastic Composite Molding Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Plastic Composite Molding: Introduction

  • A composite material is a combination of two materials with different physical and chemical properties. When they are combined, they create a material that is specialized to do a certain job; for instance, to become stronger, lighter, or resistant to electricity. It can also improve strength and stiffness. The reason for the preference for composite materials over traditional materials is because they improve the properties of their base materials and are applicable in various situations.
  • Plastic composite molding is the process of manufacturing by shaping liquid or pliable material using a rigid frame called a mold or matrix. When molding plastics, a powder or liquid polymer such as polyethylene or polypropylene is placed into a hollow mold so that the polymer can take its shape. Based on the type of process used, various ranges of heat and pressure are used to create an end product.

Key Drivers of Global Plastic Composite Molding Market:

  • Rise in popularity of composites in the global market is due to various applications and end users and are continuing to replace other materials, such as metals in the aerospace and defense industry, by composites owing to the increased demand for lightweight aircraft components, which enhance fuel efficiency. This increase in demand for composites in the aeronautics sector is driving the global plastic composite molding market.
  • The wind energy sector is driving the composite molding market, owing to an increase in the demand of renewable energies. Rise in demand for long blades in the production of wind turbines is creating opportunities for carbon fiber composites. However, the wind energy sector is estimated to witness an increase in usage of carbon fiber composites owing to the changing strategies and policies. This, is turn, boosts the plastic composite molding market across the globe.
  • Sustainability is a rising trend witnessed in the global plastic composite molding market. Increased demand for lightweight components in the transportation sector, shift toward renewable energy, and recycling of materials are some factors driving the use of composites in different applications

Global Plastic Composite Molding Market to Offer Significant Opportunities:

  • Demand for rapid production in the automobile sector is increasing, which is boosting the adoption of composite plastic molding process in wide-ranging applications. Manufacturers in the aeronautics industry have started using composites in the aircraft structures and components in order to meet the regulatory norms, thereby creating an opportunity for the plastic composite molding market across the globe.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Plastic Composite Molding Market:

  • The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the production of plastic composite molding process due to the disruption in the supply chain across the globe. The global pandemic has led to a reduced supply of some of the products primarily due to the reduced operating capacities of production plants across Europe and Asia-Pacific. Furthermore, manufacturers are also facing serious headwinds due to disruptions in raw material supply and fluctuations in prices. All these factors are hamper the growth of plastic composite molding market across the globe.

Europe to Hold Significant Share of Global Plastic Composite Molding Market:

  • The plastic composite molding market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, followed by North America and Europe. Expansion of the market in Asia Pacific can be attributed to the high rate of adoption of plastic composites molding process in countries such as China and India, which manufacture a significantly high number of plastic composite products. Increase in population in countries, such as India and China, is estimated to cater to a rise in production capacities of manufacturers.
