The Thermoplastic Composites Market was marked at a value of USD 22.2 billion in 2020 and it is further expected to grow at a higher CAGR of 7.5% during the forecasted period to account for a higher market value of approximately USD 31.8 billion by the end of the forecasted period (2021-2027)


The growth of the Thermoplastic Composites Market Share is sustained by the aerospace and defense industry where the product is gaining increased acceptance as a key material for the production of primary as well as secondary aerospace structures. Thermoplastic composites can be tailored to meet the exacting needs of aerospace manufacturers. These materials serve the need for durable, lightweight, heat & weather resistant materials for aircraft engine and other aerospace components. Higher strength-to-weight ratio of thermoplastic composites makes them ideally suited for ideally suited for application across the wind & energy sector where they are used in the production of wind turbine, and pipes & tanks.


Thermoplastic composites are polymers that can be molded at specific high temperature and hardens upon cooling. They are lightweight, abrasion resistant, and can withstand extreme temperature up to 600 F. Owing to their desirable properties such as good insulation properties and low processing and manufacturing cost, they are highly preferred over metals in possible applications. MRFR has deemed the growth of the thermoplastic composites market to be healthy and attain a substantial market valuation over the forecast period of 2021-2027.


The automotive industry is also a key end user of the Thermoplastic Composites Market Share. There is intense pressure on automotive OEMs to reduce vehicle mass to enhance fuel economy and comply with carbon emission standards. They are progressively incorporating thermoplastic composites in automotive components which augur the growth of the Thermoplastic Composites Market Share.


In contrast, problems associated with cost, unfamiliar processing, design issues, and competition from alternatives are likely to undermine the growth of the market. Meanwhile, rigorous R&D activities aimed at overcoming the shortcomings of thermoplastic composites is expected to yield positive results which would further enhance the growth of the Thermoplastic Composites Market Share.
