Stratview Research 31-05-21

Stratview Research announces the launch of a new research report on Composite Process Materials Market by End-Use Industry Type (Aerospace & Defense, Wind Energy, Marine, Transportation, and Others), by Material Type (Vacuum Bagging Film, Release Liner, Peel Ply, Breathers & Bleeders, and Others), by Application Type (Prepreg Manufacturing, Prepreg Layup, Infusion Process, and Others), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2021-2026.

This strategic assessment report, from Stratview Research, provides a comprehensive analysis that reflects today’s composite process materials market realities and future market possibilities for the forecast period of 2021 to 2026.  After a continuous interest in our Composite Vacuum Consumables Market and Composite Release Liner Market reports, we have come up with another comprehensive study on the Composite Process Materials Market.  The report estimates the short- as well as long-term repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic on the demand for composite process materials market at the global, regional, as well as country level. Also, the report provides the possible loss that the industry will register by comparing pre-COVID and post-COVID scenarios. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for the market participants as well as investors in the identification of low-hanging fruits available in the market as well as formulate growth strategies.

Composite Process Materials Market: Highlights

Generally, process materials are considered a waste as these materials are of no use once composite parts are fabricated or prepreg is laid onto the mold. However, Stratview Research considers these materials as “Process Efficiency Enhancer” which play a critical role in achieving the requisite performance of composite parts. Process materials are used at two different levels: release liners used during prepreg manufacturing and vacuum consumables used during composite parts manufacturing through manufacturing processes such as VARTM, Lite-RTM, prepreg layup/vacuum bag, and wet layup. Process materials consist of several materials including vacuum bagging film, release liner, peel ply, breathers & bleeders, flow media, sealant tapes, fittings & hoses, etc. Vacuum consumables perform a major function of reducing surplus air and resin from the laminate and optimize the fiber-resin ratio which results in improved performance and reduced VOC emissions.

The demand for process materials 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 in the demand for process materials varies from industry to industry. For instance, aerospace & defense emerged as the biggest victim 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 experienced in other markets (aerospace & defense, transportation, and marine). Overall, the composite process materials market witnessed a massive decline in 2020 but is estimated to bounce back swiftly, reaching a market value of US$ 1.15 billion in 2026.

Based on the end-use industry, aerospace & defense is expected to remain the largest segment of the market over the next five years. Although the segment has been severely hit by the pandemic, it is likely to maintain its supremacy driven by a host of factors including an expected recovery in aircraft production, increasing penetration of composites in the modern aircraft programs (B787, A350XWB, and A220), high dominance of prepreg materials in the aerospace composites, and growing demand for the automation in the manufacturing processes. Wind energy also holds a reasonable share in the market and has been gaining traction over the past few years. It was the only segment that witnessed growth amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Based on the material type, the market is segmented as vacuum bagging film, release liner, peel ply, breathers & bleeders, and others. Release liner is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market and is also expected to experience the quickest recovery during the forecast period. SCK paper-based release liner held a strong dominance in the market. The vacuum bagging film segment also offers sizable opportunities in the market.

Based on the application type, prepreg manufacturing is expected to remain the largest segment of the market and is also 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.
