The metal replacement market is projected to reach USD 159.82 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2016 to 2021. The key factor propelling the growth of the metal replacement market is the increasing demand for metal replacing materials from the automotive and aerospace & defense industries.

Major end-use industries in the metal replacement market include automotive, aerospace & defense, construction, healthcare, and others. In the automotive industry, metal replacing materials are used in the manufacturing of vehicle body parts, as well as various under-the-hood components. Therefore, increase in automobile production, along with repair & maintenance activities, is likely to propel the demand for metal replacing materials in the automotive industry.

Based on type, the metal replacement market has been segmented into engineering plastics and composites. The engineering plastics segment is further subdivided into polycarbonates, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polyamides, thermoplastic polyesters, polyacetals, fluoropolymers, and others; whereas the composites segment is subdivided into CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics) and GFRP (glass fiber reinforced plastics). In the engineering plastics segment, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2016, in terms of volume; followed by polyamides and polycarbonates. In the composites segment, GFRP is estimated to account for the largest market share in 2016, by volume. The composites segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to high growth in the CFRP market.

The metal replacement market in the Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. This region has witnessed significant infrastructural development in recent years, which has led to the initiation of several housing construction projects. The region’s construction industry is expected to grow at a healthy rate of 5.8% from 2017 to 2022. This has consequently led to increase in demand for metal replacing materials in the construction sector to replace steel bars for concrete reinforcement as well as to manufacture sewage systems. In addition, the high growth of the market in Asia-Pacific is also attributed to the increasing demand of metal replacing materials to manufacture lightweight and fuel efficient vehicles.

Metal Replacement Market

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, download the pdf brochure

Estimating the future demand of metal replacing materials is a prime challenge due to economic slowdown in varied regions worldwide. North America and Europe have still not recovered completely from the economic crisis, which, in turn, has affected the demand for metal replacing materials in major end-use industries in these regions.

Key companies operating in the metal replacement market include Solvay SA (Belgium), SGL-Group (Germany), Owens Corning Corporation (U.S.), Celanese Corporation (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Toray Industries, Inc. (U.S.), and Jushi Group (China). These players, with a wide market reach and established distribution network, are investing more on research & development activities. They also have strong technical and market development capabilities, which enable them to upgrade their existing products for new applications.
