LONDON, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global market for composites is projected to grow from USD 69.50 billion in 2015 to USD 105.26 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.04% between 2016 and 2021. This high growth is attributed to increasing use of composites in the aerospace & defense, wind, and transportation applications. "The aerospace & defense application accounts for the largest share in the composites market by value"The aerospace & defense application accounts for the largest share of the composites market. Composite structures are designed to survive extreme operating conditions such as high stress, shock, and impact loads. These requirements of complex aerospace structures are fulfilled by composites. There is an increase in the demand for composites due to new aircraft programs, including the Airbus A350 XWB and A320neo and the Boeing 787 and 737 MAX. This trend is expected to continue in the next five years due to the delivery backlog of aircrafts from major aerospace manufacturers. " Asia-Pacific projected to be the fastest-growing composites market"Asia-Pacific dominated the composites market, followed by North America. It is also the most promising market for composites in the next five years. Rapid industrialization and urbanization have led to increase in demand for composites from construction, wind, pipe & tank, automotive, electronics & semiconductor, and other industries in the region. China is expected to have the largest market share in the Asia-Pacific region due to its rapidly growing manufacturing sector in the country.
