[135 Pages Report] The Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT) Market is estimated to grow from USD 3.28 Billion in 2016 to USD 5.55 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.29% from 2017 to 2022. The increasing use of long fiber thermoplastics in the automotive and consumer goods industries is expected to drive the growth of the long fiber thermoplastics market. The base year considered for the study is 2016, and the market size is projected between 2017 and 2022.

Objectives of the Study:

The report analyzes the global long fiber thermoplastics market, in terms of volume (kilotons) and value (USD million). The report also estimates the market size and growth potential of long fiber thermoplastics across different segments, such as resin type, fiber type, application, and region. It forecasts the market size in terms of regions, namely, Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. The study also covers market opportunities and the competitive landscape for stakeholders and market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the long fiber thermoplastics market began with the gathering of data of the key company revenues and raw material costs through secondary sources such as Factiva, Hoovers, Manta, and others. The product offerings of different companies were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up approach was used to arrive at the overall market size of long fiber thermoplastics from the revenues of the key players. After arriving at the total market size, the overall market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were used to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is shown in the figure below:

The global Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT) market is projected to grow from USD 3.28 Billion in 2016 to USD 5.55 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.29% during the forecast period. The growth of the market is expected to be driven by the high demand for long fiber thermoplastics from the automotive industry. Long fiber thermoplastics are used in the manufacture of lightweight automobile components to reduce overall weight and help gain fuel efficiency to meet various regulations.

The long fiber thermoplastics market has been segmented on the basis of fiber type into long glass fiber thermoplastic, long carbon fiber thermoplastic, and other fibers. The long glass fiber thermoplastic segment is projected to witness high growth in the coming years, owing to the increasing use of glass fibers in high-performance long fiber thermoplastics for use in the automotive and consumer goods industries. Long carbon fibers are extensively used in applications such as sporting goods and aerospace, as these applications require high stiffness and high performance products.

The long fiber thermoplastics market has also been segmented based on applications, which include, automotive, sporting goods, consumer goods, industrial goods, and others. Long fiber thermoplastics are increasingly used in the automotive industry to replace conventional materials for improved performance, design freedom, corrosion resistance, and weight reduction.

Europe was the largest market for long fiber thermoplastics in 2016. The presence of some of the major automotive manufacturers, such as BMW (Germany), Volkswagen (Germany), and Mercedes-Benz (Germany) is expected to aid the growth of the market in Europe. Germany is a key long fiber thermoplastics market in Europe, due to the growing automotive industry in the country.

Long Fiber Thermoplastics Market

The weaker mechanical properties and higher cost as compared to thermoset composites may restrain the growth of the global long fiber thermoplastics market.

SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Celanese Corporation (US), PolyOne (US), Solvay SA (Belgium), PlastiComp Inc. (US), RTP Company (US), Lanxess AG (Germany), and others are some of the leading players in the global long fiber thermoplastics market.
