    Market Insights

    Sheet and bulk molding compound market is likely to grow from USD 2.68 billion in 2021 to USD 4.72 billion by 2028 at an impressive CAGR of 8.27% during the forecast period.


    What is sheet and bulk molding compound?

    Sheet and Bulk Molding Compound is a combination of glass strands, a thermosetting resin in liquid form, and mineral fillers, while sheet molding compound is different from bulk molding compound in two ways. In case of glass strands, long chopped strands are used for sheet molding compound while short strands are used for bulk molding compound, Also, the combination is formed into a malleable sheet for sheet molding compound while it is formed into a bulk in case of the bulk molding compound.

    Sheet and Bulk Molding Compound are processed through an injection molding or compression method. The compound is used in different industries such as transportation, construction, electronics, and others.

    Segment Analysis

    By Fiber Type

    Based on the fiber type, the market is segmented as glass fiber and carbon fiber. The glass fiber segment leads the market, owing to its cost-effectiveness and easy availability. The mechanical characteristics of SMC and BMC are chiefly governed by the category of reinforcement. Carbon fiber is generally employed as reinforcement where elevated strength and sturdiness are demanded. Owing to the greater cost of carbon fiber, it is used in smaller amount.

    By Resin Type

    Based on the resin type, the market is segmented as polyester and others. The polyester segment is estimated to account for a larger share of the market in the coming five years. Further, polyester resins are expected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to their unique properties, such as excellent dimensional stability, corrosion resistance, and chemical confrontation properties, which augment the durability of SMC and BMC materials. SMC and BMC composites based on polyester resin display superb fire- and flame-resistant characteristics, hence, they are being employed in electrical & electronics application.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as transportation, electrical & electronics, construction, and others. The transportation application segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period for SMC, while the electrical & electronics segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the coming five years for BMC. The growth is attributed to their exceptional properties, such as remarkable electrical insulation, surface appearance, along with outstanding mechanical properties, which make them the preferred choice over conventional materials in various end-use industries.

    By Region

    In terms of regions, presently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of SMC and BMC respectively. China, Germany, and Brazil are the growth engines of the region. The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to depict the highest growth during the forecast period. The market in the Middle East within the RoW region is anticipated to burgeon with the highest growth in the coming five years. The market is driven by the development of transportation and electrical & electronics sectors, which has led to the high demand for SMC and BMC in the region. North America and Europe are also expected to offer considerable growth opportunities during the forecast period.
