By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Composite Materials Market 2015 – Global Forecast to 2020” report to their offering.

The Composite Materials Market Size Is Projected to Grow at a Promising CAGR of 14.02% During the Forecast Period, to Reach USD 84.92 Billion by 2020

In 2015, major trends in the automotive industry are towards delivering more fuel efficient vehicles, providing a safer vehicle for the end-users, and as well as reduction in exhaust emissions. Hence, composite materials manufacturers are striving to improve the materials used in a vehicle to provide the adequate fuel efficiency and vehicle manufacturers on controlling the emission systems with advanced technologies.

The growth in this industry has been on a constant rise, given the changing emission norms across the globe along with increasing vehicle production. Manufacturers of composite materials are coming with new and advanced manufacturing process to make improved composite materials to meet rigorous standards.

Key global composite materials manufacturers include Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Cytec Industries Inc. (the U.S.), Teijin Ltd. (Japan), SGL Carbon SE (Germany), and TenCate N.V. (the Netherlands).

Though these companies are major players in the industry, the demand for the composite materials is highly dependent on the rise in vehicle production and changing emission norms imposed by governments across different countries.
