Global Long Fiber Thermoplastic Market Analysis and Forecast Report 2030
Long fiber thermoplastic is the material that bridges the gap between conventional fiber-reinforced components and composites. Long fiber thermoplastic is a moldable thermoplastic that is employed to manufacture the components used in the automotive industry. Long fiber thermoplastic components are produced by the pultrusion process or injection molding. They are generally 10-12 mm long. Long fiber thermoplastic has higher mechanical performance due to which they are often used as metal substitutes, as an alternative to under-performing plastics, and as a replacement for higher-cost engineering polymers. Long fiber thermoplastic exhibits various properties including high strength, heat resistance, durability, weight reduction, and corrosion resistance. Long fiber thermoplastic finds its application in automotive, aerospace, construction, healthcare, consumer, electronics, and sports and leisure.
