Continuous Fiber Composites Market Trends – Growing demand from the automotive industry  

Continuous Fiber Composites Market Trends

Growing demand for lightweight materials in industrial applications is one of the significant factors influencing Continuous Fiber Composites market growth.

The continuous fiber composite market is expected to be valued at USD 3,315.0 million in 2027 from USD 2,184.8 million in 2019,  registering a CAGR of 5.3% through the forecast period, according to a recent report by Emergen Research. There is rapid growth in the continuous fiber composite market due to the rising demand for lightweight materials from industrial applications. In the coming years, continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite is seen as an important technology for sustainable automobile, aircraft, and machinery manufacturing, offering an increased production rate of durable and lightweight parts/components with the ability to be connected to cost-effective welded assemblies without fasteners/holes.

Continuous fiber composite demand in aircraft manufacturing is an important factor driving the demand for the continuous fiber composite industry. Aircraft structures, including the Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320, which are manufactured using glass, carbon, and aramid fibers, accounts for a large percentage of the product. The primary constituent of the continuous fiber composite matrix is low strength and rigid plastic that keeps the fibers in proper alignment and spacing and provides protection against abrasion and other environmental factors.
