    Market Insights

    Vacuum consumables are considered as waste once composite parts are fabricated or prepreg is laid onto the mold. However, Stratview Research considers these materials as "Process Efficiency Enhancers" which play a critical role in achieving the requisite performance of composite parts. Vacuum consumables include vacuum bagging film, release film, peel ply, breather & bleeder, pressure-sensitive tape, sealing tape, vacuum hose, vacuum pump, etc. Vacuum consumables are used during composite parts manufacturing through different processes, such as infusion process, prepreg layup process, filament winding, and wet layup. Vacuum consumables perform a major function of reducing surplus air and resin from the laminate which results in improved performance and reduced VOC emissions. They also optimize the fiber-resin ratio in composite part manufacturing.

    The demand for vacuum consumables in the composites industry is highly subjected to the performance of major end markets such as aerospace, wind energy, marine, and automotive. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the demand for vacuum consumables varies from industry to industry. For instance, aerospace & defense emerged to be the biggest victims with demand falling over 30% in 2020. On the other hand, the wind energy industry flourished with a robust growth of mid-teens in 2020, propelled by huge wind turbine installations in China and the USA. Furthermore, the exceptional growth in the wind energy segment has partially offset the decline enumerated in other markets (aerospace & defense, transportation, and marine).

    The demand for vacuum consumables in different end markets in 2021 again varied from market to market. Some markets, such as marine and transportation, recorded healthy recovery, whereas wind energy and aerospace, recorded hefty declines. Overall, the composite vacuum consumables market witnessed a mid-single-digit decline in 2021 but is estimated to bounce back swiftly, reaching the market value of US$ 0.8 billion in 2027. 

     

    Segment Analysis

     

    We have segmented the composite vacuum consumables market based on the end-use industry type as aerospace & defense, wind energy, marine, transportation, and others. Aerospace & Defense was the largest market for vacuum consumables before the COVID-19. There had been a big change in the market dynamics with wind energy surpassing the aerospace industry and becoming the biggest demand generator for vacuum consumables in 2020.

    Over the next five years, wind energy is expected to remain the biggest demand generator of vacuum consumables. The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) anticipates that about 557 GW of new wind energy capacity will be added from 2022 to 2026. Aerospace & defense is likely to experience a promising growth during the forecast period, driven by a host of factors including an expected recovery in aircraft production, increasing penetration of composites in the modern aircraft programs, high dominance of prepreg materials in the aerospace composites, and growing demand for the automation in the manufacturing processes.

    Based on the material type, the composite vacuum consumables market is segmented as vacuum bagging film, release liner, peel ply, breathers & bleeders, and others. Vacuum bagging film is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market, whereas release liner is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as prepreg layup, infusion process, and others. The infusion process is estimated to remain the largest segment of the market and prepreg layup is expected to experience the highest growth over the next five years. Key drivers are increasing penetration of composites in modern aircraft programs (having high usage of prepreg), impressive growth in wind turbine installations coupled with the trend of large-sized blades, and the emergence of advanced composites in the automotive industry.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market over the next five years. The region is also expected to be the fastest-growing market in the post-pandemic market developments. China is the workhorse of the region, driving the region’s share significantly. North America is currently the second-largest market and is likely to maintain its position in the years to come. The region has been the pioneer in the advanced composites industry with the presence of several small to large-sized OEMs, molders, vacuum consumable suppliers, and raw material suppliers.
