Key Developments and Top Suppliers: Unveiling the Growth Potential of Hybrid Composites Market

Hybrid Composites Market

Hybrid composites are advanced materials made by combining two or more different types of fibers or matrices to create a composite with enhanced properties. These materials offer a combination of strength, stiffness, lightness, and durability, making them suitable for various applications across industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction, and sports equipment manufacturing.

The hybrid composites market was expected to reach USD 876 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 15.0% during the forecast period. The use of hybrid composites is increasing due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and high corrosion and thermal resistance. The hybrid composites market in APAC is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value and volume. The growth of the APAC hybrid composites market can be attributed to its increasing demand from transportation, sporting goods, and wind energy, among others.

The hybrid composites market, by end use industry, is divided into five segments, namely, automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense, marine, aerospace & defense, wind energy, and sporting goods. The market in the wind energy end-use industry is expected to witness the highest growth rate, in terms of value and volume, during the forecast period. Wind turbine blades are the key components in the wind power generation system. Hybrid composites are widely used in the development of large-sized wind turbines. The R&D focus of blade manufacturers has mainly been on reducing the cost and increasing performance of wind blades. This is driving the use of hybrid composites, as it is less expensive than other special-purpose fibers without compromising on its high-performance property. 

Hybrid composites are segmented in to four types based on fiber used which includes carbon/glass, aramid/carbon, HMPP/carbon, UHMWPE/carbon. Aramid/carbon is projected to be the fastest-growing fiber segment in the hybrid composites market during the forecast period. Aramid fibers are used for specialized applications that require very high mechanical properties along with high thermal, chemical, and abrasion resistance. Aramid/carbon hybrid composites find applications in security & protection, rubber reinforcement, and advanced material composites, where high strength is required. Aramid/carbon fiber composites are used to manufacture radomes, structural parts, rocket motor casing, and highly loaded parts in defense and commercial aircraft. This is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
