The epoxy composite market is projected to reach USD 33.06 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 7.34% from 2016 and 2021. Epoxy composites offer excellent compression and tensile strength, excellent modulus of elasticity, and high corrosion resistance. The increase in the penetration of advanced materials such as epoxy composite in various industries, such as wind energy, aerospace & defense, automotive & transportation, sporting goods, electrical & electronics, and pipe & tank are key factors expected to drive the growth of the epoxy composite market in near future. In addition, the long life & low maintenance requirement, rapid urbanization & economic growth in emerging countries, and the development of innovative products is expected to significantly boost the growth of the epoxy composite market.

The epoxy composite market has been segmented based on fiber type, end-use industry, manufacturing process, and region. The epoxy composite market, by fiber type has been segmented into glass, and carbon, among others. The glass segment is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period, as glass fiber-based epoxy composites are increasingly used in industries, such as wind energy, electrical & electronics, and pipe & tank. Furthermore, these composites are economically cheaper as compared to other fibers.

Major end-use industries of epoxy composites include aerospace & defense, automotive, sports & leisure, and wind energy. The wind energy segment dominated the epoxy composite market, in terms of value & volume, in 2015, as epoxy composites are widely used in the manufacturing of wind blades, nacelles, and spar cap. The aerospace & defense and automotive & transportation segments are projected to witness significant growth, due to the increasing use of lightweight, high strength, and corrosion resistant materials in these industries. The rail and marine end-use industry segment is also expected also expected to grow in the coming years, due to the wide acceptance of epoxy composite in high speed trains due to its lightweight and high strength.

The epoxy composite market, by manufacturing process has been segmented into lay-up, compression molding, resin injection, resin transmission, filament winding, and pultrusion. The lay-up manufacturing process segment was the largest, in terms of value and volume, as it is cost efficient and requires simple molds and tools. This process is mainly used to manufacture large structural parts for wind energy, and aerospace & defense industries.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for epoxy composites during the next five years. The key factor expected to fuel the growth of segment are increasing demand from the wind energy, aerospace & defense, automotive & transportation, and construction industries. The presence of established epoxy composite manufactures and increased wind energy capacity especially in China is expected to boost the growth of the epoxy composite market in this region.
