Natural fiber composites are largely driven by increasing environmental awareness. Additionally, the materials' low cost, low density, acceptable specific properties, ease of separation, enhanced energy recovery, CO2 neutrality, biodegradability, and recyclable properties, have focused attention on natural fiber use in composites. Demand is growing for component materials that are durable, reliable, lightweight, and with excellent mechanical properties that are significantly better than those of traditional materials.

Lucintel's report, “Natural Fiber Composites Market Trend and Forecast 2011–2016: Trend, Forecast and Opportunity Analysis,” forecasts the natural fiber composite materials market to grow to US $531.3 million in 2016 with an 11% CAGR over the next five years.

Several automobile models, first in Europe and then in North America, featured natural fiberreinforced thermosets and thermoplastics in door panels, package trays, seat backs and trunk liners. The application of natural fiber composites has increased and is gaining preference over glass fiber and carbon fiber due to low-cost and low-weight European-based natural fiber composites molders READ MORE >
