Continuous fiber composites are noted to be versatile materials with the end product being a combination of resins, fibers as well as different core materials. These have shown enhanced strength-to-weight ratio and have gained prominence in the high performance applications while also penetrating the cost sensitive industries. Although being manufactured through complex manufacturing processes, continuous fiber composites have gained significant prominence in the historic period and the market is expected to expand at a significant rate.
Continuous Fiber Composites Market: Dynamics
One of the key applications of continuous fiber composites is in the production of wind mill turbine blades. The rising number of wind mill installations significantly leverages the demand for continuous fiber composites. Another factor contributing to this growth is the lucrative government schemes and subsidies being offered in the wind mill value chain. This further augments the growth of continuous fiber composites market. Having said that, apart from new wind mill installations, the MRO and retrofit activities in wind mill application are also further noted to drive the demand for continuous fiber composites. Another driving factor propelling the continuous fiber composites market is the rising prominence of electric vehicles. One of the main focuses of electric vehicle manufacturers being mainly on overall weight reduction, the fast paced growth in this application is expected to significantly affect the growth of continuous fiber composites market as well. Also, the growth of aircraft production and increasing fleet size, the sector is expected to contribute significantly towards the growth of continuous fiber composites market.
However, on the downside, factors such as mechanical strength, pliability as well as decomposition and recycling of continuous fiber composites should be taken into account. These may hinder the overall growth of the continuous fiber composites marketplace. To minimize the impact of these technical aspects on the market growth, manufacturers of continuous fiber composites are increasing their focus on research & development activities.
