Asia-Pacific: The Biggest Market of Automotive Composite

The Asia-Pacific region was the world’s largest market for automotive composite in 2013. China is the key consumer of automotive composite in Asia-Pacific. Need for lightweight and fuel efficient vehicles shifted manufacturers focus towards automotive composite. Various product launches, partnerships, agreements, and expansions have in turn made the region a potential growth market for automotive composite.

Carbon Fiber Composite–The Fastest-growing Type; while Exterior components The Biggest Automotive Composite Application

Carbon fiber is a material made up of carbon atoms that are aligned parallel to the main axis of the fiber. The fibers are very thin in diameter, about 1/10th the size of a human hair. The crystal alignment makes the fiber very strong for its size. Normally, carbon fibers are molded with other materials such as plastic resin and graphite to form carbon fiber composite. Carbon fiber composite is the fastest-growing automotive composite driven by its high demand for chassis & powertrain components application. The chassis & powertrain market for automotive composite has a wide scope for its expansion, which in turn would help in increasing the consumption for automotive composite. Exterior components are the biggest application of automotive composite and are projected to be worth $ 3,555.51 million by 2019.

Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Owens Corning (U.S.), Johns Manville (U.S.), SGL Group (Germany), Cytec Industries Inc. (U.S.), Koninklijke Ten Cate nv (The Netherlands),  Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd.
