Asia-Pacific held the largest share by volume in composites market in 2014. Major growth in the Asia-Pacific region is expected from the growing construction, aerospace and electronics & semiconductor application. The composites market in Asia-Pacific region is growing fast as the application industries such as automotive, construction, aerospace and electronics & semiconductor application are expected to register a significant growth rate in next five years. Presence of emerging economies such as India and China are helping the composites market to grow in the region. The freeing up and privatization of the industry, and massive foreign investment combined with low costs are factors in this growth.

There are many drivers which are forcing the composites market to grow at a decent pace including increase in demand of lightweight materials in transportation industry to increase the fuel efficiency, growing demand of wind energy and increasing use of composites by Boeing and Airbus in aerospace industry. In 2014 the global wind energy market increased by around 45% due to the adoption of green energy in all over the world. China added 23,350 MW of wind power capacity in 2014 which contributes almost 90% of addition took place in Asia-Pacific region which helped to drive the composites market in Asia-Pacific region. The growing use of composites in transportation industry including rail, high end cars, medium and heavy duty vehicles etc. also helped to grow the market at good pace. Both Boeing and Airbus are projecting multibillion dollar markets for new airplanes where use of composites is increased over the next 20 years. Traditionally used composites such as glass composites and carbon fiber composites are widely used in aerospace & defense, wind and automotive industry and now increasing their area of commercial applications in sporting goods, marine, construction, healthcare and oil & gas applications.

Agreements & partnerships and expansion of production capacity were the key strategies adopted by industry players in order to maintain growth in the composites market. The composites has wide industrial applications and new collaborations and agreements are paving the way for fulfilling the ever changing demand for new applications with better physical and mechanical properties. As a result of this, a diverse application base is developing for composites. Market players are focusing on signing new agreements with end-user companies especially in automotive industry that can meet the growing demand from application industries.
