Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Composites Market in the US - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) composities will rise at an annual rate of 3.1 percent to 3.9 billion pounds in 2020. Thermoset (or unsaturated) polyester will remain the leading material. Construction and motor vehicle markets will see the best growth, though smaller volume markets such as wind energy and aerospace will rise the fastest. Glass fibers will remain by far the top fiber material used in the composites industry

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the 3.4 billion pound US FRP composites market. It presents historical demand data plus forecasts (2020, 2025) by fiber (glass, carbon and other), product (thermoset polyester, epoxy, vinyl ester, other thermosets, thermoplastic polyester, polypropylene, nylon, styrenics, polycarbonate, other thermosplastics), and market (construction, motor vehicles, consumer durables, electrical and electronic, marine, wind energy, aerospace and aircraft, other). The study also analyzes company market share and provides competitive analysis on US industry players.
