The marine composites market is growing owing to the large demand for sailboats and yachts in the leisure industry. The growth of the super-rich (High Net Worth Individuals- HNWI) and the expenditure on luxury shopping will see a rise in this sector The industry is, thus, forecasted to rise in the coming years. Furthermore, the emerging technological advancements in the field of bio-plastics and autoclave prepregs is also steering this market.
The report gives market estimation by product types into glass fiber composites, carbon fiber composites, and foam core materials. The glass fiber composites had high demand till 2012 since they were cheaper compared to carbon fiber composites. Carbon fiber composites are currently being used in sail boats, jet boats, cruise ships, powerboats. Amongst the resins - unsaturated polyesters are likely to be used in this industry. These materials are used in various parts of maritime vessel like interiors to furniture. Resins are most likely to be used in smaller boats and the glass fiber and carbon fiber composites would be used mainly in larger recreational vessels. The key factor is to make light weight hulls and corrosion resistant.
The key regions with market opportunities in the new boat building industries are China, South Korea, and other oceanic regions. Asia-Pacific has the highest growth rate for the marine composite market; although Europe has much potential but due to the high costs of styrene there has been much decline in the region.
Market Dynamics of the Global Marine Composite Market:
Innovation in material technology
Rising expense of consumers
Demand for new and improved speed boats
