NEW YORK, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Opportunities identified by end use industry type (transportation, consumer goods, construction, industrial, others), by material type (short fiber thermoplastics, long fiber thermoplastics, continuous fiber thermoplastics, glass mat thermoplastics), by fiber type (glass fiber, carbon fiber & others), by resin type (polypropylene, polyamide, polybutylene terephthalate, and others) and by region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific [including Rest of the World])
The global thermoplastic composites market is expected to reach an estimated $16.4 billion by 2021 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% by value from 2016 to 2021. The major drivers for market growth are the increasing demand for lightweight and environmentally sustainable materials, and the replacement of metals with composites in different end use industries.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include increasing inter-material competition and increasing focus on continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites.
A total of 125 figures / charts and 45 tables are provided in this 213-page report to help in your business decisions.
