Transportation is the largest end-use industry segment of the GFRP composites market, in terms of value.
In terms of value, the transportation end-use industry segment accounted for the largest share of the GFRP composites market in 2016. Owing to their lightweight, GFRP composites are used as substitutes of aluminum and steel in the transportation industry.
GFRP composites are lighter than traditional metals by 15–20% and therefore, the weight of a vehicle can be reduced by 60% with the use of GFRP components. This increases the fuel efficiency of the vehicle and reduces its carbon footprint.
In addition, stringent regulations such as CAFE and UNEP in North America and Europe have been laid down to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the use of lightweight and fuel-efficient materials in structural components of vehicles. This has encouraged the transportation industry in North America and Europe to adopt GFRP composites.
Asia Pacific accounted for a major share of the GFRP composites market in 2016.
The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global GFRP composites market in 2016, owing to its high demand from the wind energy, electrical & electronics, and construction end-use industries in the region, accompanied by regulatory norms mandating the use of eco-friendly materials. The growth of the wind energy industry in the region has increased the demand for lightweight GFRP composites.
The greater focus by India and China on the production of electricity through renewable resources and the increasing wind installations in China, Japan, India, and other emerging countries are expected to drive the GFRP composites market in the region. The construction sector is also driving the GFRP composites market, especially in China and Japan.
