NEW YORK, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

"Increasing demand for Fire, Smoke, Toxicity Retardant (FST) Composite Resin from rail and aircraft interior applications to drive the FST composite resin market"
The global FST composite resin market is projected to reach about USD 835.2 million by 2020, registering a CAGR of 8.5% between 2015 and 2020. The major drivers fueling the growth of the FST composite resin market are increasing use of FST composite resin in interior application of rail and aircraft so as to meet stringent public safety regulations imposed by various regulatory authorities.

"Aerospace & defense is the fastest-growing application for the FST composite resin market."
The FST composite resin in aerospace & defense application is also projected to witness the highest growth rate, due to the increasing penetration of composites into interior of commercial aircrafts, such as the Gulfstream Aerospace G650, Boeing B787, Airbus A320, and Airbus A350 XWB. FST composite resins such as thermoset and thermoplastic, which are used as a matrix in composites, offer improved performance properties including safety that make the composites viable in such applications. The stringent safety regulations mandated by Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) coupled with high demand of FST composite resin from transportation and aerospace & defense applications, are driving the global FST composite resin market.

"North America is the fastest-growing market for FST composite resin."
North America is the fastest-growing market for FST composite resin, in terms of value and volume. High economic growth rate, growing manufacturing industries, and new product developments by various leading players are few factors leading to the growth of the market for FST composite resin in this region. The U.S. dominates the market for FST composite resin in North America. Stringent safety regulations in this region especially in the U.S. drive the FST composite resin market in the transportation and aerospace & defense applications. Also, the demand for FST composite resin in aerospace & defense is high owing to the presence of largest aircraft manufacturer Boeing in the country.
