    Impact of COVID-19 on Long Fiber Thermoplastics Market

    Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.

    Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.

    Market Insights

    Long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) is the category of composite materials based on thermoplastic resin system and reinforced with long  discontinuous fibers. They are typically used to make parts through the injection or compression molding process.

    In 2020, the wrath of pandemic hit hard all the major industries including automotive, consumer goods, sporting goods, and industrial equipment. The LFT market could not escape from such a distressing scenario and logged a massive decline of -12% in 2020 amid the pandemic. However; the industry stakeholders are expecting a quick recovery in some regional markets. The recovery from the disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to start from 2021. It is anticipated that the market will cross its 2019-sales figure in 2022 only, marking a consistent growth during the forecast period. Overall, the LFT market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 4.4% in the long run to reach US$ 1,353 Million in 2026.

    Segments' Analysis

    Based on the end-use industry, the LFT market is segmented as automotive, consumer goods, sporting goods, industrial goods, and others. Automotive is expected to remain the largest and the fastest-growing segment in the market during the forecast period, owing to the increasing focus of automobile manufacturers towards fuel efficiency which can be attained through higher penetration of lightweight materials such as composites. The automotive industry is the biggest user of compounds including SFT, LFT, SMC, and other-reinforced compounds.

    Based on the resin type, the market is segmented as polypropylene, polyamide, polybutylene terephthalate, PEEK/PEKK, and others. PP-LFTs held the dominance in 2020 and is expected to maintain their position over the next five years as well. PP resin is comparatively cheap than other resin systems; thus, molders and OEMs in coordination with material suppliers are trying to enhance the performance of PP-LFTs to replace other resin system-based LFTs.

    In terms of regions, Europe is expected to remain the largest market for LFTs during the forecast period. Europe is the home for leading automotive OEMs, tier players, and LFT manufacturers. Germany and Belgium are the manufacturing capitals of LFTs in the region. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period driven by China, Japan, and India. China was one of the markets that experienced an excellent recovery amid the pandemic.
