Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) Panels and Sheets Market: Highlights
FRP panels and sheets accounted for less than 4% of the global panel market in 2015. It has overall low penetration in almost all of the applications across regions.
Lightweight, excellent corrosion resistance, low manufacturing cost of FRP panel through continuous lamination process, good surface finish, and high strength to weight ratio of FRP panel, make it suitable for wide array of applications.
It is one of the most promising panel type and is expected to grow faster than competing materials in coming years.
The fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) panels and sheets market offers good growth opportunity and is likely to grow at 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Increasing recreational vehicle production in the US and Europe and increasing penetration of FRP panels in recreation vehicle, building and construction, and truck and trailer are some of the growth drivers in the global FRP panels and sheets market.
Recreation vehicle is the major consumer of continuous FRP panels and sheets and is expected to remain the growth engine of the market during the forecast period.
Increasing penetration of FRP panels and increasing production of recreation vehicles driven by rising disposable income, rising number of baby boomers, and gaining popularity of outdoor activities especially in the US and Europe are some of the factor driving the FRP panels and sheets market.
Glass fiber and polyester resins are the most widely preferred materials
In the global FRP panels and sheets market and are expected to remain dominant reinforcement and matrix type, respectively, during the forecast period. Both materials provide the perfect blend of price-performance ratio to most of the applications including recreational vehicles, building & construction, and truck & trailers.
North America is expected to remain the largest FRP panels and sheets market
During the forecast period due to increasing recreational vehicle and truck & trailer production and increasing demand of lightweight products with superior strength. US is the major contributor to the North American FRP panels and sheets market.
Most of the major FRP panels and sheets manufacturers have headquarters and key manufacturing locations in the US.
