Purchasing power in the couPurchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%. On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.                                                         Request Insights

  •  A joint development agreement (JDA) between SGL Carbon and Solvay aims to commercialize the first composite materials based on large-tow intermediate modulus (IM) carbon fiber. These materials will be based on SGL Carbon's large-tow IM carbon fiber and Solvay's primary structure resin systems, and they will meet the requirement to lower prices and CO2 emissions, as well as improve the manufacturing process and fuel efficiency of next-generation commercial aircraft.

  • Teijin Limited announced that it has added three matrix resins—polypropylene (PP)/polycarbonate (PC), polyamide, and PC—to its lineup of carbon fibre thermoplastic intermediate materials (PA).

Global Composites Market Highlights Over 2023 - 2033

Base Year


Forecast Year

2023 - 2033



Base Year Market Size (2022)

~USD 100 Billion

Forecast Year Market Size (2033)

~USD 165 Billion

The global composites market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 165 Billion by the end of 2033 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2033. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 100 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to rising demand for chemical and corrosion resistance material. These corrosion resistance material includes platinum and more. Platinum is known to be the least reactive metals and hence they are in high demand. Palladium was in high demand in North America in 2018 with approximate 65,000 ounces needed for the chemical industry.

Additionally, growing chemical industry is anticipated to be the another major factor expected to boost the growth of the market. For instance, India currently has an approximately USD 175 Billion for chemicals and petrochemicals, and by 2025, it is anticipated to reach about USD 299 Billion.

Global Composites Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Driver

  • Growing Infrastructure Activities of Roads and Bridge- By 2022, the Indian government anticipates building about 64,000 km of national highways for the cost of approximately USD 740 Billion.
  • Surge in Usage of Composites in Aerospace- The A380's airframe is made up of more than 19% composite materials.
  • Rise in Aging Infrastructure- In the United States, there are more than 615,000 bridges. Currently, about 46,150, or an approximately 6% of all bridges in the country, are deemed structurally deficient, which means they are in "bad" condition and account for approximately 40% of all bridges that are at least 50 years old.
  • Increasing Use of 3D Printing in the Marine Industry- The MAMBO (Motor Additive Manufacturing BOat), a 3D-printed boat made with continuous fibreglass thermoset material, was unveiled by Moi Composites in October 2020.
  • Growing Urban Population- Approximately 4.4 billion people, or 56% of the world's population, reside in cities. By 2050, approximately 7 out of 10 people will live in cities, with the urban population predicted to more than double from its current level.


  • Recycling and Standardization Issues
  • High Costs
  • Increasing Trade Conflicts

Lack of standardization is expected to hamper the mass production of automobile and aircraft owing to the manufacturers considering conservative designs. Hence this factor is expected to hinder the growth of the market. 

The composites market is segmented and analysed for demand and supply by end use into electrical & electronics, automotive & transportation, wind energy, aerospace & defense, pipes & tanks, and construction & infrastructure. Out of which, automotive & transportation segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033. The growth of this segment is anticipated by growing automotive industry. Also there has been growing investment made in automotive industry which is also expected to boost the market growth. For instance, between April 2000 and March 2022, the automotive industry attracted about USD 30 Billion worth of FDI in equity, or approximately 5% of all FDI in equity during that time.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Composites Chemicals Growth

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
