The major factors fueling the growth of the FRP panels & sheets market are the growing demand for composites from the transportation and construction industry, strong growth of the truck & trailers market, and recovery of recreational vehicles and non-residential construction sector from the economic crisis of 2008–2009.
Recovery of recreational vehicles and its increasing demand to drive the FRP panels & sheets market
FRP panels & sheets are widely used in recreational vehicles for sidewall panels, roof panels, door skins, floor panels, and so on, as they have superior strength-to-weight ratio than other traditional panels & sheets. The demand for recreational vehicles is driven by low fuel prices and interest rates, rise in number of baby boomers engaging in leisure activities, improved economy, rising costs of airlines, and demand for new recreational vehicles from younger generation. After the economic recession of 2008–2009, the shipment of recreational vehicles increased from 165,700 units in 2009 to 374,100 units in 2015. Thus, with the increase in demand for these vehicles, the demand for FRP panels & sheets is also rising owing to its features such as lightweight, high performance, and low maintenance cost in comparison to metals.
