Biocomposites Market Trends

  • Growing Prevalence of spine degeneration to boost the market growth

The increasing stress upon the usage of biobased products has helped to boost the market of biocomposites to a great extent. Vehicle components have been sorted for recycling to prevent the huge number of radioactive materials and waste matter produced worldwide. Automotive manufacturers have been instructed to carry out the disposing process at their end to prevent the huge production of waste materials and scrap all over the world. The service life and maintenance of the vehicles have been handed over to the manufacturers.

 Further, developed countries, including Germany, the US, and Japan, are focusing on increasing the use of environmentally-friendly products instead of petroleum-based products. The European Union (EU) prefers using such products more than the US and Japanese governments. It insists on using bio-based materials, encouraging recyclability of vehicle components, or making the automotive manufacturers responsible for disposal at the end of the service life of the vehicles. However, the requirements in North America are not as stringent for automotive manufacturers as they are in other markets around the world. For example, the Japanese government aims to replace 25% of plastic consumption with renewable products by 2030.

Additionally, biocomposites made from wood fiber are growing as an increasing number of forests are under systematic and sustainable utilization. Wood plastic composites are manufactured from wood fibers. The use of natural polymer is also increasing due to the push for 100% biodegradable products. There is a significant demand for 100% biodegradable products in developed North America and Europe markets. 

However, the rising need to reduce vehicle weight to improve efficiency is prompting manufacturers to incorporate lightweight materials like biocomposites. Thus, the rapid production of vehicles ly will eventually expand the biocomposites market revenue.

Biocomposites Market Segment Insights:

Biocomposites Fiber Type Insights

The biocomposites market segmentation, based on fiber type, includes hemp, kenaf, flax, jute, and others. The jute segment held the majority share in 2021 of the biocomposites market revenue. This is primarily due to the growing utilization of jute in many applications, such as packaging. However, kenaf is the fastest-growing category due to an increase in the demand for kenaf seed as a functional ingredient for processing biofuels over the forecast period.

Biocomposites Process Type Insights

The biocomposites market segmentation, based on process type, includes compression molding, injection molding, resin transfer molding, and others. The compression molding segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This is due to the rising demand for vehicles is expected to boost the demand for compression molding presses. However, injection molding is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing demand for mass production of thousands of identical components at lower costs coupled with design flexibility and precision from various end-user industries such as packaging, medical, and electronics, positively impacting the market growth.

Biocomposites End-Use Industry Insights

The  Biocomposites market data has been bifurcated by the end-use industry into construction, automotive, consumer goods, and others. The automotive category dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. This is attributed due to the increasing use of biocomposites in automobiles such as cars and trucks. They are used in cars for nonstructural components such as interior panels. However, construction is the fastest-growing category over the forecast period. Biocomposites are produced from wood fibers and natural fibers and are used in different forms in this industry. Decking, railing, balusters, fences, windows, doors, frames, and other components are produced from biocomposites. Wood fiber composites are mainly used to produce decking, railing, balusters, and fences.
