The top three segments of the global thermoplastic composite market are discussed below:
Global SFT market
In 2016, the global SFT market accounted for a market share of 38.42%. It is expected to be the leading segment during the forecast period. The high consumption of SFT in various applications such as the transportation, consumer goods, and electrical and electronics industries is driving the growth of the market.
According to Kurva Samba Sivudu, a lead textile, fiber, and composites research analyst from Technavio, “An increasing focus on high-performance thermoplastic composites has resulted in the overall growth of the market, especially in India and China. Japan and Russia are also contributing to some extent, which has accelerated the consumption of thermoplastic composites.”
Global LFT market
In 2016, the global LFT market accounted for a market share of 26.55%. An increasing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, along with the need for sustainability and recyclability, is driving the growth of the market. Extensive use of long fiber thermoplastic composites in various end-user industries, such as transportation and consumer goods, has resulted in the overall growth of the market, which has accelerated the consumption of thermoplastic composites.
Global GFT market
In 2016, the global GFT market accounted for a market share of 20.29%. GFT is made up of fine fibers of glass with high mechanical properties. It is lightweight, strong, and robust. Its high tensile strength makes it comparable with traditional components such as metals. Thus, its consumption is increasing.
The increasing use of GFT composites in the construction and transportation sectors, especially in India and China, has driven its demand from APAC. The expansion of infrastructure and construction projects in the Americas has resulted in the overall growth of the market, which has accelerated the consumption of thermoplastic composites.
