Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Hybrid Composites Market size is poised to reach USD 21 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of hybrid composites was over USD 9 Billion. Hybrid composites, which combine both glass and carbon fibers, enable manufacturers to customize mechanical qualities for any particular application without modifying the required dimensions of the tubes or poles. These properties of hybrid composites are escalating the market growth. For instance, the United Nations Environment Programme predicts that between 2017 and 2030, chemical sales will nearly quadruple.

For principal structures of commercial, industrial, aeronautical, marine, and recreational facilities a hybrid composite may be used. It's got a lot of advantages for the aeronautics industry like high fatigue and corrosion resistance, plus excellent impact protection. The U.S. commercial aviation industry contributes USD 1 trillion yearly, or 5% of the country's GDP.

Hybrid Composites Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Demand for Lightweight Materials – Composites and polymers, for example, are a great deal lighter than steel, brass, alloys, iron, etc. By using these materials, manufacturers may reduce the weight of airplane components, which helps to minimize fuel costs. Thus, the increasing demand for lightweight materials in the aerospace and defense industry is accelerating the hybrid composites market growth. For instance, Airbus has delivered over 484 narrow-body commercial aircraft in 2020, compared to Boeing's over 43 deliveries.
  • Technological Advancements - Technological advances that reduce the duration of production are expected to have a positive impact on demand for automotive products. 85.4 million motor vehicles were produced globally in 2022, a 5.7% increase from 2021.
  • Growing Environmental Concerns - Manufacturers are now using these hybrid composites in place of metal parts due to rising worries about fuel usage and CO2 emission levels. This will drive market expansion as well.


  • Increasing Prices of Raw Materials – The raw materials needed for the production of hybrid composite are expensive, making consecutive component production expensive. The cycle time, which is closely related to the amount of time needed for filling and curing, has a substantial impact on the production cost of hybrid composite products. These factors may become hindrances for the market of hybrid composites.
  • Lack of Skilled Labour Force
  • Complicated Manufacturing Techniques

Hybrid Composites Segmentation

Fibre (Carbon/Glass, Carbon/Aramid, Metal/Plastic, Wood/Plastic)

The carbon/glass category is poised to lead the market during the forecast period with about 49% share of the global hybrid composites market. Carbon/glass composites have better properties such as lightweight that help in reducing the weight of the wind blades and vehicles. In the production of hybrid composite laminates, carbon/glass and glass fiber-reinforced fabrics with an epoxy matrix are used. These composite materials offer a range of properties that increase demand in industry and beyond, e.g. reduced thermal expansion, strong rigidity, tolerance to temperatures up to 1 500 C, chemical resistance values higher than 700 C as well as lower weight. With significantly less expense than if they had utilized carbon fiber, users can achieve up to 85 to 90% of the benefits of carbon.

End-Use (Automotive & Transportation, Construction, Wind Energy, Marine, Aerospace & Defence, Sporting Goods)

The automotive & transportation industry is expected to garner the largest market share. In the automotive sector, the usage of hybrid composites has made high-performance and luxury affordable. Hybrid composites' improved cost and performance attributes are anticipated to fuel demand in the automotive and transportation end-use sectors.
