Epoxy Composite Market Segment Insights

Epoxy Composite Fiber Type Insights

The Epoxy Composite market segmentation, based on Fiber Type, includes Glass, Carbon. The glass fiber segment led the market accounting for a revenue share of more than 60% in 2020 and will retain the leading position throughout the forecast years. This growth is attributed to the rising use of glass fibers in automotive and marine applications due to their cost-effectiveness. In addition, the use of composite materials in place of metals results in better fuel efficiency, thus enhancing the overall vehicle performance. The high strength-to-weight ratio of glass fiber types makes them suitable for a broad range of applications.

However, manufacturers opt for other epoxy composites, such as carbon and aramid fiber epoxy composites, due to the difficulties associated with recycling glass-fiber epoxy composites. The carbon fiber segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of more than 8.5% on account of the superior thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties offered by these fibers to the composites. In addition, the high strength and durability exhibited by these composites are enhancing their growth opportunities across various end-use industries. 

Epoxy Composite End-use Insights

Based on End-use, the Epoxy Composite market segmentation includes Automotive & Transportation, and Wind Energy. The automotive & transportation end-use segment led the market in 2020 with a revenue share of more than 25%. The high durability and low weight of epoxy composites make them ideal for structural components used in automotive and transportation systems. Epoxy composites are used in several automotive applications including interior headliners, underbody systems, instrument panels, bumper beams, air ducts, airbag housing, engine cover, etc. The rising demand for lighter, safer, and energy-efficient vehicles is boosting product consumption in automotive and transportation applications. Automakers across the globe are focusing on achieving high fuel efficiency as energy regulatory bodies have set limits for carbon emissions.

Swancor launched EzCiclo and CleaVER in March 2022. These products provide recycling solutions for wind turbine blades by making them reusable again after their useful life has ended. CleaVER is a technology that enables the degradation process, while EzCiclo itself is recyclable together with glass or carbon fiber composites.
