“Long Fiber Thermoplastic (LFT) market projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.96% during the forecast period”

The key factor expected to drive the growth of the long fiber thermoplastic market is the increasing demand from the automotive industry, as long fiber thermoplastics helps to reduce the overall weight while improving the mechanical strength of the vehicle. long fiber thermoplastics are cost-effective means of substituting engineering plastics and metals to ensure the manufacturing of efficient, productive, and lightweight components, leading to lower fuel consumption. This has led to the increasing adoption of long fiber thermoplastics in the automotive industry. However, weaker mechanical and thermal properties as compared to thermoset composites may restraint the growth of the market.

“Polypropylene is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the long fiber thermoplastic market, in terms of value.”

The unique properties and ability to adapt to various fabrication techniques of long fiber thermoplastics make it a suitable material in a wide range of applications. PP resins have high resistance to temperature and is used along with glass or carbon fibers to manufacture electronic components. PP resins are used to manufacture lightweight automobile components to enhance fuel economy and decrease emissions.

“Europe is expected to be the fastest-growing market for long fiber thermoplastics.”

Europe is expected to be the fastest-growing market for long fiber thermoplastics during the next five years. The market in this region is driven by the increasing consumption of long fiber thermoplastics in the automotive industry. Europe is more receptive to long fiber thermoplastics as compared to other regions, owing to the stringent regulations related pertaining to carbon emissions in the region. These regulations have led to automotive manufacturers focusing on the development of lightweight vehicles, which help to increase fuel efficiency and consequently reduce carbon emission.
