Research and Markets: Global Composites Market for HSR to Grow at a CAGR of 11.33% Over the Period 2014-2019, New Report Says

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Composites Market for HSR 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The use of composites in the manufacture of both interior and exterior parts of HSR has significantly increased during the last decade. These are now also used extensively to build infrastructure components for HSR stations. An example of this is the glass composite-based platform system at the Needham Market train station in Suffolk, UK. These structures in HSR stations have highly specific structural requirements, such as resistance to vibration, and long term performance and durability, increasing the requirement for advanced structural adhesives to support them. This has paved the way for replacing traditional adhesive-based soldering and fastening solutions with advanced epoxy-based adhesives that have high lap shear and peel strength. The development of these new and advanced structural adhesives has greatly increased the market’s profit by creating newer possibilities for composites in the HSR sector.

According to the report, the increasing global concern about the protection of the environment and the need to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in order to lessen the negative effects of global warming have led consumers and governments to try environment-friendly modes of transportation such as hybrid vehicles and HSR. HSR is a faster and greener mode of transport, in comparison to traditional rolling stocks, as it emits less carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Composites used to manufacture HSR systems are lighter in weight than their metallic counterparts, and allow for low overall vehicular weight and less fuel consumption. In addition, travel time is greatly reduced in these trains as most of them run at speeds of 155 mph and above. Due to these advantages, many developed nations have already established domestic HSR networks, and developing nations are expected to follow suit in the future.
