DUBLIN, Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

The “Hybrid Composites Market by Fiber Type, Resin (Thermoset and Thermoplastic), End-Use Industry (Automotive & Transportation, Aerospace & Defense, Wind Energy, Marine, Sporting Goods), and Region – Global Forecast to 2023” report has been added to's offering.

The hybrid composites market is projected to grow from USD 436 million in 2018 to USD 876 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 15% during the forecast period.

The market is growing because of the high demand from the automotive & transportation, wind energy, and sporting goods end-use industries. Hybrid composite products are preferred as they can reduce the weight of the product and are stronger than metallic parts. The market witnessed strong growth in the past few years owing to the growing use in the US, Germany, China, Brazil, and Japan.

The hybrid composites market is segmented on the basis of fiber type into Carbon/Glass and Glass/Carbon, HMPP/carbon, UHMWPE/carbon, aramid/carbon, and others. Carbon/glass and glass/carbon hybrid fiber composites are the key types used in the automotive & transportation and wind energy industries. These are lightweight materials, which reduce the weight of vehicles and wind blades. The increasing demand from the automotive & transportation and wind energy end-use industries is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Thermoset resins exhibit outstanding strength and crack resistance. These resins are suitable for use in automotive & transportation and marine applications, which are some of the largest end-use industries requiring materials that possess high strength, lightweight, and flammability performance. Thermoset resin dominates the hybrid composite market owing to its wide-scale applications in various end-use industries including automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense, wind energy, and marine.

The automotive & transportation industry uses hybrid composites to reduce weight and increase the fuel efficiency of vehicles. The use of hybrid composites in the automotive industry has enabled good performance and luxury at economical pricing. The better cost and performance properties offered by hybrid composites is expected to drive their demand in the automotive & transportation end-use industry.

The region is experiencing maximum developments in the hybrid composites market. Majority of the automotive and aerospace component manufacturers across the region are constantly involved in product innovations and development of hybrid composites products in this region. The manufacturers across the region are adopting various growth strategies to strengthen their position in the market.
