Global Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) Market to increase to over USD 135.1 billion by 2028

27-Jun-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global fiber reinforced composites (FRC) market was worth roughly USD 88.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to increase to over USD 135.1 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 6.2 percent during the forecast period.

A composite material is made of two or more components where the individual components having extremely dissimilar physical and chemical properties come together to form a third component with its own unique properties. A FRC is a composite building material and has 3 essential components, which are fiber as an irregular phase, matrix as a regular phase, and the interphase region also called an interface. It is an advanced composite group that makes use of rice hull, rice shell, plastics, and rice husk as main components. The technical steps to follow to create FBC are refining, blending, and compounding natural fibers produced from cellulosic waste streams which eventually form a high-resistance fiber composite material.

Some of the major reasons why the global fiber reinforced composites (FRC) market is showing an upward growth graph is because of the material being lightweight, having high resistance to corrosion, requiring less maintenance, needing less installation time, and flexibility in designing.

The global market growth was hampered during Covid-19 due to the closure of all non-essential manufacturing units. The overall demand for the product decreased owing to the volatile situation created globally during 2020. However, from the onset of 2021, the global market has been showing steady growth signs during the projection period.

FRC is used extensively in the aerospace, automotive, and construction sector. For example, in construction, FRC is now preferred over steel to create building structures owing to the lightweight of fiber reinforced composites. FRC are better substitutes for aluminum in the automotive sector because FRC provides higher tensile strength along with design and molding flexibility, thus increasing the effectiveness of the automotive vehicle. These 3 sectors are extremely heavily invested sectors since they are a major part of the overall infrastructure of any economy and are projected to get higher investments and funding from the government as well as private sectors as a part of infrastructural development schemes. As these sectors will grow, the global fiber reinforced composites (FRC) market is expected to grow as well. The global market expansion rate is expected to gain momentum in the coming years owing to the growth of the wind energy market. Wind turbine plates are created from carbon fiber composites. With constant innovation in the field of wind power generation and wind turbines, the global market is projected to grow simultaneously.

The high costs associated with the FRC production may hinder the global market growth whereas increasing studies & research to enhance the quality of FRC is expected to provide growth opportunities in the global market along with some challenges because of the environmental difficulties and concerns regarding FRC properties.
