DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Composite Release Liners Market: 2017-2022" report to their offering.
The global release liners market in the composites industry was valued at US$ 412.0 million in 2016 and is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period to reach US$ 641.9 million in 2022.
Increasing demand for prepreg in the aerospace & defense and automotive industries, recovering sports & leisure market, and sustainable growth in the wind energy market are some of the major growth drivers of the global composite release liners market.
Over the next five years, prepreg manufacturing is expected to remain the most dominant application of release liners in the global composite industry. The penetration of prepreg is increasing in many industries, such as aerospace & defense, wind energy, transportation, and sports & leisure. For instance, the next generation aircraft, such as B87 incorporates about 50% composites of total structural weight in which majority of composite components are made utilizing prepreg materials. There is also a healthy growth expected from VARTM process based applications.
High use of prepreg to manufacture structural components is the prime driver of the material in the aerospace & defense industry. The automotive industry is expected to witness the highest growth in the same period, driven by increasing penetration of composites in vehicles to enhance fuel efficiency for achieving stringent government regulations, such as CAFÉ standards.
Paper is likely to remain the most preferred backing material type for composite release liners over the next five years because of its excellent mechanical resistance and good caliper profile. The most widely used papers for composites are super calendared kraft paper (also known as glassines) and clay coated kraft paper. Also, there is a significant use of polyolefin-based release liners in prepreg manufacturing due to its excellent compatibility with epoxy resins.
