The textile composites material market is estimated at USD 4,770.0 Million in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 6,597.0 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.7%, between 2015 and 2020.

Since the last thirty to forty years, the usages of textiles composite in applications have increased steadily, penetrating, and conquering new markets, constantly. The importance of textiles composite has already been proven being light-weight materials with high strength & stiffness properties, the current challenge is to make them cost effective. The efforts to manufacture low cost composite textiles components have resulted in several innovative production techniques, which are currently used in the composites textile industry. Textiles composite are widely used in electrical & electronics, marine, sporting goods, aerospace & defense and wind energy applications.

There are many drivers which are forcing the textile composite market to grow at a high CAGR including increase in demand for lightweight materials from the transportation industry to increase in the fuel efficiency. Also, the growing demand for wind energy as clean energy and increasing use of composite textiles in prepreg form by Boeing and Airbus in the aerospace industry which are the major factors driving the market. In 2014, the wind energy market increased by around 45% due to the adoption of green energy, globally. China added 23,350 MW of wind power capacity in 2014, which accounted for almost 90% of the addition of wind power capacity that took place in the Asia-Pacific region, which helped to drive the textile composite market in the region. The growing use of textiles composite in the transportation industry including rail, high end cars, medium, and heavy duty vehicles, helped the market to grow at a good pace. Both Boeing and Airbus are projecting multibillion dollar markets for new airplanes where the use of composite textiles is expected to increase over the next 20 years. Traditionally, used textiles composite such as glass fiber textiles composite and carbon fiber textiles composite are widely used in electronics, wind, and marine industries and now their area of commercial applications is increasing in sporting goods, construction, health care and aerospace & defense applications.

The textile composites market has witnessed a strong growth in the past few years. This growth is estimated to continue during the forecast period. While composites textiles are already proven to be high strength and weight-saving materials, the current challenge is to make the composites textiles cost effective by reducing the cost of fibers. The efforts to develop and commercialize economically beneficial composite textile components and structures have resulted in several innovative production techniques, currently being used in the composites industry.

The textile composites market is characterized according to the types of fabrics that are quad axial fabrics, triaxial fabrics, unidirectional fabrics, biaxial fabrics, and double bias fabrics. High performance fabrics are those which offer increased strength, stiffness, and temperature resistance. Most common materials used for making high-performance fabrics are H-R- and S-glass, aramid, and carbon fibers.

Major two fabric types are woven and non-woven fabrics, which are produced by weaving, warp knitting, braiding, and other specially modified techniques. Woven and non-woven fabrics usually have single plane structures also called 2-D fabrics and fabrics in multi-plane structures called 3-D fabrics. These woven and non-woven fabrics have broad applications in industries such as electrical & electronics, wind, sports goods, marine, construction, aerospace & defense, automotive, pipe & tanks, and medical. Carbon fiber textile composites, glass fiber textile composites, aramid fiber textile composites, and others fiber textile composites are the major four types of composite textiles. There are the drivers that are expected to help the composite textiles market grow at a high CAGR, in the coming five years. Electrical & electronics, wind energy, marine, sporting goods, and aerospace & defense industry are the major industries driving the composites textile market in prepreg form. The glass textile composites are widely used in PCBs for a number of electronics applications. With an increase in demand for PCB in electrical & electronics market, the textile composites market has also grown in the last decade. In 2014, the wind energy market expanded by around 45% due to the adoption of green energy, globally. China added 23,350 MW of wind power capacity in 2014, which accounted for almost 90% of the addition that took place in Asia-Pacific region, which helped to drive the composites textile market in the region. Both Boeing and Airbus are projecting multibillion dollar markets for new airplanes where the use of composites is expected to increase over the next 20 years, which would help the composite textiles market to grow in prepreg form.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of composites textiles due to increased demand from electrical & electronics, wind energy, and sporting goods industries. China, Japan, and India are important consumers of composites textiles in this region. China is estimated to have the the largest share in the regional market, in terms of volume, in 2015. The market size, in terms of volume, is comparatively low in the RoW but is estimated to register a growing CAGR between 2015 and 2020 as the demand from countries, for instance Brazil, continues to grow. Asia-Pacific and North America regions are the most active markets with regard to strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands, respectively. The superior end-user industry growth, increased local manufacturing, and the number of domestic players in the vertical market segments, such as industrial applications. Construction, aerospace & defense, and automotive applications in the Asia-Pacific region are the important drivers, in terms of consumption, of the composites textiles.

The important composite textile manufacturers include Owens Corning (U.S), Hexcel Corporation (U.S.), Saertex GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), BGF Industries Inc. (U.S.), Chomarat Industries (France), Sigmatex Ltd (U.K.), and Toray Industries (Japan). The companies in this market need to compete with each other with regard to the prices and a wide product range with advanced technology to meet the market requirements.
