$12.17 Billion Wind Turbine Composites Material Market 2017 - Global Forecast to 2021 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wind Turbine Composites Material Market - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.

The wind turbine composite market is projected to reach USD 12.17 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.28% from 2016 to 2021.

Increase in demand for carbon fibers for manufacturing wind turbine blades and rise in demand for renewable energy sources are driving the growth of this market. However, issues related to the high cost of raw materials such as carbon fiber and epoxy resin, and recyclability issue of composites are factors restraining the growth of the market.

The blades application segment accounts for the highest composite consumption. Composites used in wind turbine blades provide them with properties such as long shelf life, less maintenance, resistance to corrosion, and high strength-to-weight ratio.

The Asia-Pacific wind turbine composite market is witnessing significant growth both, in terms of value and volume. The increasing demand for lightweight and high strength materials is driving the growth of the wind turbine composite market in this region. Moreover, the supportive government initiatives such as favorable policies, wind power development programs, government regulations concerning renewable energy, and adjusted feed in tariffs for land-based wind power installations in this region are offering an impetus to the wind turbine composite market.
