Analyst of the report highlights reinforced polymers as the type segment of the market that is contributing 90% of the demand. This information is based on a recent market research report from IndustryARC, titled “
Composite Materials Market: By Material (Fibre Reinforced Polymers, Resins, Matrices, Others) By Application (Aerospace, Construction, Wind Energy, Automotive, Others) By Method (Open Moulding & Closed Moulding); By Geography - Forecast (2018 - 2023).
Nowadays, traditional materials such as steel and aluminum are getting replaced by evolving composite materials as they offer design flexibility opportunities for engineers. The composite material is a combination of matrix and reinforced material, which are distinct and identifiable. They are useful in many aspects, for example, from simple shelters to huge electronic devices. Composite materials offer weight reduction, smooth surface, and increased fuel efficiency, and consequently widely used in the manufacturing of Aircraft.
Additionally, fiber-reinforced polymer, fiberglass, reinforced plastics, ceramic matrix composites, and metal matrix composites are the different materials used in boat hulls, car bodies, building panels, sports equipment, military aircraft, and tennis rackets. They are corrosion resistant, dent-resistant, and flexible in nature, which makes body armor more resistant to bullets and enables turbine blades to withstand the opposing stress of high wind speeds. Owing to the high-temperature resistance, these products are used in compressors, turbines, and external systems for advanced lightweight transmission.
