Thermoplastic, also known as thermo-softening plastic is a polymer that becomes moldable or pliable at specific high temperature and solidifies upon cooling. In other words, thermoplastic is an organic material that melts on heating and gets hardened on cooling. Depending upon their chemistry, they are similar like rubber and can be as hard as aluminum. In addition to this they are light weight, abrasion resistant and can withstand temperature up to 600 0F. Composite material or composite is material synthesized by combination of two or more constituent material with substantially different physical or chemical properties. This produces a material having characteristics different form that of constituent materials. At the same time the composite material so formed is stronger, lighter and less expensive. Thermoplastic composites provide many advantages over metal including, good insulation properties, and low processing and manufacturing cost. Moreover they possess better fatigue properties over metal and tolerate larger deflections without deformation. Thermoplastic composites find their major applications in aerospace & defense and wind energy, wherein there is need of stronger, light weight, and heat & weather resistant materials. The strength-to-weight ratio of such composites is higher than that of traditional materials, which makes it applicable in aircraft engine, blades of wind turbine, pipes & tanks, and in other marine usage. Apart from this, thermoplastic composites are used in industrial tooling applications such as molds and master molds. This is replacing the traditional tooling materials such as metals and wood.  


The global aerospace & defense market was growing at highest CAGR on account of increasing demand for both commercial and fighter jets around the world. This is expected to continue throughout the forecast period to propel growth of the global thermoplastic composites market. Wind Energy is being adopted as an important source of green energy by many developing countries. In recent times, the trend is followed by developing countries as well owing to an increasing environmental concerns. The heat weather resistant nature of thermoplastic composites is favoring the growth of its demand in spacecraft. The global composite market is estimated to reach ~ USD 110 billion during the forecast period on account of the growing demand from major end use industries. This, in turn is anticipated to help push the growth of the global thermoplastic composites market. Major players manufacturing the product are heavily investing in production of thermoplastic composites to meet increasing demand from diverse end use industries. However, the cost intensive nature of thermoplastic composite may pose as a bottleneck in growth of its global market. Thermoplastic composite is more expensive than its polyester and vinyl ester based counterparts.
