The global composites market witnessed significant growth and is estimated to reach USD 134.93 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 8.59% during the review period 2017-2023. Rising expenditure on the construction projects such smart city and architectural buildings along with escalating defense budgets are anticipated to drive the market growth. Moreover, the subsequent shift of automotive industry towards lightweight components to increase fuel efficiency is propelling the global composites market growth. Aforementioned factors are likely to exhibit an exponential CAGR of 8.59% during the assessment period.

Aerospace and defense sectors are likely to exhibit a considerable growth over the years due to growing use of composites to reduce the weight along with low maintenance costs compared to traditional materials. For instance, consumption of composites for Airbus aircraft is more than 50% as compared to 2%-3% usage of composites previously. However, increasing demand for glass fiber composites in the aerospace industry is likely to provide a positive impact on this market. Over the years, the market is expected to witness a high development in downstream derivative and innovation to meet regulations and broaden application spectrum in different regions.

Composites are extensively used in roofs, infill panels, tank liners, and load-bearing structures. Increasing penetration of fiber reinforced polymer composites (FRP) in rail and road building projects owing to durability, aesthetic appeal, and low maintenance are anticipated to influence market demand positively. Carbon and fiberglass composites are used in wind turbine blades for material strength and stiffness, which, in turn, raised the level of energy. Thus, growing awareness to reduce fossil fuel dependence and increasing renewable energy production are likely to provide a lucrative opportunity to market players.
