Composite Preforms Market
This report, from Stratview Research, studies the global composite preforms market over the trend period of 2012 to 2017 and the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
The Global Composite Preforms Market: Highlights
The global composite preforms market offers a healthy growth opportunity over the next five years and will reach an estimated value of US$ 350.1 million in 2023. Increasing usage of composite materials in the aerospace and automotive industries, advancements in the preform technology, its ability to develop complex parts, excellent product strength, and shortened cycle time are some of the major factors that are proliferating the growth of the composite preforms in various end-use industries.
The global composite preforms market is segmented based on the end-use industry type as Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Infrastructure, Medical, Marine, and Others. Aerospace & defense is expected to remain the most dominant segment of the composite preforms market during the forecast period, driven by an increased usage of preforms in turbofan engines of commercial aircraft. The material type is likely to gain more acceptance in the industry over the next five years.
The automotive segment is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by an increasing penetration of composites into the structural sections of vehicles coupled with a greater demand for composite preforms to shorten part cycle time. Composite preform can be used to fabricate high-performance composite parts for the automotive industry, but most of the automakers have disowned it, owing to automakers’ perception regarding its high cost and their change-averse culture.
Over the last ten years, governments of many countries have imposed stringent regulations on the automotive industry by setting up targets related to vehicle’s fuel efficiency and carbon emission, which compelled auto OEMs to look for the best alternatives for achieving those targets. Composite preform is one of the best options for achieving those targets. Currently, many OEMs are heavily betting on composite preforms technology through High-Pressure Resin Transfer Molding (HP-RTM) process in structural applications of their mass-produced vehicles.
North America is expected to remain the dominant market for composite preforms during the forecast period, driven by the presence of major preform suppliers, composite part fabricators, aero-engine manufacturers, and OEMs. Europe is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by an expected increase in the production rates of A350XWB and A320 aircraft programs.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material manufacturers, composite preform manufacturers, part fabricators, aero-engine manufacturers, and OEMs. The key aerospace OEMs are Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Embraer, and Bombardier, whereas the key aero-engine manufacturers are CFM, GE Aviation, and Pratt & Whitney, and the key automotive OEMs are BMW, GM, Toyota, and Ford Motors.
The key composite preform manufactures are A&P Technology, SGL Kumpers GmbH, Sigmatex (UK) Ltd., Bally Ribbon Mills, Saertex GmbH & Co. KG, Highland Composites, Fabric Development Inc. and Compsys Inc. New product development, regional expansion, and joint product development with customers are the key strategies adopted by some of the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
