Long fiber thermoplastics market outlook from the expanding aerospace sector

LFT is rapidly being deployed in the aerospace, aviation and missile/defense applications. The material offers lightweight advantages, design flexibility, high specific modulus and strength, ease of installing, and recyclability. Aerospace components featuring LFT mainly comprise of complex-shaped baseplates for electronic housings, stowage doors, structural load-bearing member and more. These products are utilized for making aeronautic equipments that reduce the weight and bulkiness of an aircraft, eventually making air travel more fuel-efficient and safe.

Given the expansive usage of the material in the aerospace & automotive sectors, it is prudent to mention that the Asia Pacific long fiber thermoplastics market, led by South Korea, India, China, and Japan, will accumulate commendable returns in the years to come. China specifically, is predicted to emerge as one of the most lucrative avenues of the regional industry. Since LFT finds long-term applications in the automotive interior manufacturing sector and in the construction of waste treatment plants as well, given its chemical and thermal resistance, China will come up to be one of the most profitable regional grounds for the long fiber thermoplastic industry. As per estimates, China long fiber thermoplastics industry size is likely to record a CAGR of 10.5% over 2019-2025.

Another regional ground that is primed to be rather lucrative for the long fiber thermoplastics market is Europe, led by the countries of France, Italy, Germany and the U.K. The region’s automobile industry has evolved rapidly as it comprises renowned auto giant’s like Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and more that offer sales worldwide. The LFT market will also witness significant gains as carbon reinforced thermoplastics are used in the manufacturing of vehicles to reduce kerb weight which makes vehicles more fuel efficient.

These thermal & heat resistant components which are largely used in automotive, aerospace and electrical & electronic industries, are lately being amalgamated with carbon and glass fibers to form structures which increase the robustness of a product. This would indeed, give rise to a spate of new growth avenues in the years to come. According to Global Market Insights, Inc., the long fiber thermoplastics market size will surpass $3 billion by 2025.
