[Research Report] The advanced composites market was valued at US$ 38,772.87 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 69,092.18 million by 2028; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 10.1% from 2022 to 2028.

Advanced composite materials are high-structural strength materials produced by combining one or more stiff, high-strength reinforcing fibers with a compatible resin system. Advanced composites are used as a substitute for metals and wood composites in many structural applications. Advanced composites comprise structural materials developed for high-technology applications, such as automotive, airframe, and wind turbine structures, for which other materials are not sufficiently stiff. In these materials, stiff and strong continuous or discontinuous fibers, whiskers, or small particles are dispersed in the matrix. Several fibers, including metals, carbon, ceramics, glasses, and polymers, are extensively used in manufacturing advanced composites.

Growing demand for lightweight materials in the aerospace & defense industry is driving the growth of the advanced composites market. The need for fuel economy and efficiency has prioritized lightweight materials in the transportation industry. In addition, advanced composites are increasingly used in wind energy, automotive, and construction industries. Further, the growing adoption of biocomposites is expected to fuel the advanced composites market growth during the forecast period.

The advanced composites market is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and South & Central America. In 2022, Europe held the largest market share, and Asia Pacific is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High demand for advanced composites from the automotive, aerospace & defense, and building & construction industries supports the growth of the Europe advanced composites market. Further, Asia Pacific, the most populated region in the world, hosts one of the world's most rapidly developing construction & automotive industries. This factor contributes to the high demand for advanced composites in the region.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Advanced Composites Market

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the advanced composites market was mainly driven by industries such as automotive, building & construction, aerospace & defense, wind energy, and marine. In 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in supply chains caused by the shutdown of national and international borders. The pandemic hampered manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities in various countries. Advanced composites have major applications in the aerospace & defense and automobile industries, wherein they are used to manage the body weight of vehicles and fuel management. It is also widely used in the construction sector. Hence, with the reduction in activity in these sectors, the demand for advanced composites also decreased. The pandemic also caused fluctuations in the prices of raw materials. All these factors led to a decrease in demand for advanced composites. However, in 2021, the economies started reviving as various industries resumed business activities. As a result, several industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive and building & construction, showed signs of recovery in their operations. Various industries are also overcoming the consequences of disruptions in their raw material supply chains. With such a promising recovery, the global industrial sector is expected to provide the impetus for the advanced composites market growth in the coming years.

End-Use Industry-Based Insights

Based on end-use industry, the advanced composites market is segmented into aerospace & defense, automotive, wind energy, building & construction, electrical & electronics, and others. The wind energy segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for advanced composites is rising in the wind energy segment due to the increasing need for larger turbine blades for energy generation. Factors such as lower weight than metallic structures, ability to spin faster and capture winds at lower velocity, longer blade life, corrosion resistance, and lower maintenance costs have positioned advanced composites as a crucial material enabling economical solutions to large-scale energy-generation projects. Rapid developments in material technology continue to support variations in the structure of wind turbines. Many of these variations were primarily introduced to reduce the prices of turbines. Factors such as corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, toughness, rigidity, weight, and appearance of wind turbines significantly impact their operations. Further, glass fiber-reinforced plastics (GRP) is the most used type of composite material in wind turbine manufacturing.
