Composite Testing Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Composite Mechanical Testing held the largest share in the Composite Testing Market in 2019. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for composites in varied applications such as the making of interiors in the automobiles, used in medical devices, defense and others. The addition of the high strength fibers to the polymer matrix can greatly improve the mechanical properties which include ultimate tensile strength, temperature resistance and flexural modulus.

Composite Testing Market Segment Analysis - By Product Type

Continuous fibers held the largest share in the Composite Testing market in 2019. Continuous fibers composites are the laminated material in which the individual layer, pile or the lamina are set to orient in the directions that enhance the strength in any primary load direction. Continuous Fibers have a high tensile strength and thermoplastic matrix systems of the relatively low glass transition temperature, such as polypropylene/glass fiber and hence used in various applications in the automobile sector. Continuous fiber-reinforced composites the fatigue process which is described by the commencement and duplication of breaks, instead of inception and engendering. In 2019, recently the commercial sector has slowed as the risk for a downturn in global construction increases due to the COVID-19 pandemic which led to a temporary lockdown of all economic activities across the globe.

Composite Testing Market Segment Analysis - By End Use

The automobiles Industry dominates the composites testing market growing at a CAGR of 7.5%. The new composites have combined with the general advantages of semi-crystalline thermoplastic matrix composites with respect to the molding processes, chemical resistance, damage tolerance, environmental resistance and all other recycling possibilities with the growing demand for lower cost production and a higher production rates in larger volumes market such as automotive, transportation and the construction industries. With the growing automotive industry and its demand for composites particularly in the regions of Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe. The segment is witnessing growth due to the rising penetration from untapped markets. First-mover advantage in untapped regions and relatively low acquisition costs remain key driving forces in this application market. Furthermore, R&D in the Composites Testing market will support the growth of the composite testing market.

Composite Testing Market Segment Analysis - Geography

Asia Pacific region held the largest share in the composite testing market in 2019 up to 40%, owing to the increasing automotive industry in the region. According to China Automotive Association, in 2018 the vehicle production has increased by 30% and the number of newly registered passenger vehicles increased by 23.14 million. The growth was attributed to its FDI policy which has favored China’s automobile industry and has attracted many well-established foreign brands to invest in their automotive industry. Total demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles in Japan in 2017 was 5.19 million units, an increase of 2.2% from the previous fiscal year, with sales of passenger cars and CVs, excluding mini-vehicles, totaling 3.34 million units, down 0.7% from fiscal 2016, and sales of mini-vehicles reaching 1.86 million units, up 7.9%. The commercial vehicle sector in South Korea accounts for 10% of the country’s automotive market. In 2017, there were 4.2 million vehicles manufactured in South Korea, of which 3.6 lakh vehicles were commercial vehicles. The prominent factors such as economic growth and continued high levels of infrastructure spending has augmented the sales of heavy-duty trucks and commercial vehicles in the APAC region. This in turn, positively impacted the composite testing Market in the Asia Pacific region. Currently the composite testing market has been affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic where most of the industrial activity has been temporarily shut down. It in turn has affected the demand and supply chain as well which has been restricting the growth in the year 2020.

Composite Testing Market Drivers

Rise in Demand for Composites in Aircraft Industries

The industrialization has led to the increase in demand for composites in various industries for different purposes. The rise in demand for composite testing services in advanced commercial aircrafts.
