Global Natural Fiber Reinforced Composites Market, By Fiber Type (Plant, Animal), By Resin Type (The

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1925747


Natural Fiber Reinforced Composites are materials in which, at least, the reinforcing fibers are made from fibers derived from renewable and carbon dioxide neutral life cycle sources. A composite consists of two parts, namely, matrix and reinforcing fiber. The matrix is made of thermosetting plastics or thermoplastics, and the reinforcing fiber is made from natural sources such as jute, cotton, wool, etc.

Natural fiber-reinforced composites are emerging rapidly as potential substitutes to metal or ceramic-based materials for use in applications such include automotive, aerospace, marine, sporting goods, and electronics. Environmental awareness and community interest and new environmental regulations and unsustainable consumption of petroleum have led to the need for environment- friendly materials, which have good properties when compared to synthetic fibers.

Segment Analysis

The highest demand for natural fiber composites is expected from the building and construction segment due to their increasing use in making beams, columns, etc.
Also in the construction segment, segment, the Asia Pacific region will show the greatest demand due to the increasing construction activities and growth of the real estate industry.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Rising use in power, oil & gas, chemical processing as well as semiconductor industries
  • Availability of natural fiber, low cost, and ease of manufacturing have resulted in market growth
  • Gaining popularity due to an increase in general environmental awareness and the need for sustainability
  • The low hazard manufacturing process
