Increase in Demand for PCBs Drives the Textile Composites Market


Reading time ( words)

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Textile Composites Market - Global Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The textile composites market has witnessed a strong growth in the past few years. This growth is estimated to continue during the forecast period. While composites textiles are already proven to be high strength and weight-saving materials, the current challenge is to make the composites textiles cost effective by reducing the cost of fibers.

The efforts to develop and commercialize economically beneficial composite textile components and structures have resulted in several innovative production techniques, currently being used in the composites industry. 

There are the drivers that are expected to help the composite textiles market grow at a high CAGR, in the coming five years. Electrical & electronics, wind energy, marine, sporting goods, and aerospace & defense industry are the major industries driving the composites textile market in prepreg form. 

The glass textile composites are widely used in PCBs for a number of electronics applications. With an increase in demand for PCB in electrical & electronics market, the textile composites market has also grown in the last decade. In 2014, the wind energy market expanded by around 45% due to the adoption of green energy, globally. 

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of composites textiles due to increased demand from electrical & electronics, wind energy, and sporting goods industries. China, Japan, and India are important consumers of composites textiles in this region. China is estimated to have the the largest share in the regional market, in terms of volume, in 2015. 

The market size, in terms of volume, is comparatively low in the RoW but is estimated to register a growing CAGR between 2015 and 2020 as the demand from countries, for instance Brazil, continues to grow. Asia-Pacific and North America regions are the most active markets with regard to strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands, respectively. The superior end-user industry growth, increased local manufacturing and the number of domestic players in the vertical market segments, such as industrial applications. Construction, aerospace & defense, and automotive applications in the Asia-Pacific region are the important drivers, in terms of consumption, of the composites textiles.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

12/03/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
It hardly feels like the end of 2021, but here we are, looking at a new year and IPC APEX EXPO and AltiumLive coming up in less than two months. If you don’t count days lost during the holidays, it’s more like one month before showtime. Hey, at least we have some live events to attend now. This week, we have some association and trade show news, as well as articles on data management and the diminished role of U.S. chip makers in the global electronics supply chain. We’re almost behind the eight-ball here, folks, and we can’t build chip factories overnight. Let’s get a move on!

Happy Thanksgiving From the I-Connect007 Team

11/25/2021 | I-Connect007
In the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday is a celebration of gratitude and appreciation for the harvest and for the people close to us. Thankfulness, however, transcends just one day of official observance. The fourth Thursday of November is when the U.S. officially celebrates Thanksgiving Day and as we take time to observe this holiday, the I-Connect007 team wishes to offer our thanks to you, our global readers and contributors: designers, fabricators, engineers, assemblers, quality and process control gurus, chemists, physicists, supervisors, managers, entrepreneurs, business owners, standards writers, industry experts, and more. You breathe life into the vital, thriving, world-changing electronics industry. You are the real story.

I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.
