The thermoset composites market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.67% from 2016 to 2021, in terms of value

The thermoset composites market is projected to reach USD 57.98 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.67% from 2016 to 2021. The increasing demand for thermoset composites from the transportation and wind energy end-use industries, increasing usage of thermoset composites in construction & infrastructure, and new product launches are major factors driving the growth of this market. However, issues related to recyclability and remold ability of thermoset composites, and insufficient production capacities are restraining the growth of the market.

The wind energy end-use industry segment accounted for the largest share of the thermoset composites market, by value

Thermoset composites are gaining importance in the wind energy sector, as these composites enhance the strength & rigidity of structural components and reduce the weight of wind blades. Use of glass fiber thermoset composites is also quite established in the wind energy sector; more than 90% of thermoset composites used are glass fiber composites. Thermoset composites encompass high strength-to-weight capability as compared to other traditional materials, and hence, facilitate more efficient designs and better fabrication. These composites are increasingly used in the development of wind blades, nacelles, and spar caps.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for thermoset composites

The thermoset composites market in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing demand for thermoset composites by various end-use industries, such as transportation, wind energy, and construction & infrastructure is driving the growth of the thermoset composites market in the Asia-Pacific. In addition, rapid economic development and industrialization in the Asia-Pacific region are providing an impetus for the growth of the thermoset composites market.

The thermoset composites market is projected to reach USD 57.98 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.67% from 2016 to 2021. The properties of thermoset composites include excellent strength, lightweight, low specific gravity, excellent modulus of elasticity, and high corrosion resistance, among others. The superior properties of thermoset composites have contributed to their increasing applicability across varied end-use industries, such as wind energy, automotive, and construction & infrastructure, among others. The increasing demand for lightweight and durable alternative materials from the aerospace, automotive, and transportation industries is one of the major factors driving the growth of the thermoset composites market.

The thermoset composites market has been segmented on the basis of fiber type, end-use industry, resin type, manufacturing process, and region. Based on end-use industry, the wind energy segment accounted for the largest share of the thermoset composites market in 2016, in terms of value and volume. This large share is mainly attributed to the increasing usage of thermoset composites for the development of wind turbine blades and spar caps. The transportation end-use industry segment is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2016 to 2021, owing to the use of thermoset composites in high-end cars, rail, and medium and heavy-duty vehicles.

The thermoset composites market, by resin type, has been segmented into polyester, epoxy, vinyl ester, phenolic, and polyurethane, among others. The polyester resin type segment accounted for the largest share in terms of volume, and the epoxy resin type segment accounted for the largest share in terms of value, due to the high yield and better processing properties of epoxy resins. The thermoset composites are made by using reinforcements, such as carbon fiber and glass fiber. Based on fiber type, the glass fiber segment led the thermoset composites market in 2016.

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest and the fastest-growing region in the thermoset composites market during the forecast period. This is due to the presence of established thermoset manufacturers and increased installation of wind turbines in this region. Issues related to recyclability and disposal, and testing of thermoset composites are factors restricting the growth of the market. Unlike thermoplastic composites, thermoset composites are not remolded, which limits their application in the transportation and electronics industries to a certain extent.

Owens Corning (U.S.), Toray Industries, Inc. (Japan), Teijin Limited (Japan), and SGL Group (Germany) are some of the major players in the thermoset composites market. These companies have adopted the strategy of expansions to strengthen their foothold in the thermoset composites market. Toray Industries, Inc. accounted for a major share of the thermoset composites market. Companies are adopting both, organic and inorganic growth strategies such as new product developments and agreements to enhance their market share.
