Metal Replacement Market: Snapshot
The rising demand for lightweight materials, to be utilized in automobiles and various manufacturing components of aircrafts, has been creating prominent growth opportunities for the global metal replacement market. The increasing uptake of metal replacement processes in a number of industries, such as the automotive, defense and aerospace, healthcare, construction, and the consumer goods is also fueling the metal replacement market’s growth significantly.
With metal replacing materials being widely utilized in the production of various body parts of automobiles and several under-the-hood constituents, the automotive industry has emerged as the leading consumer of these materials across the world. Over the coming years, the significant increase in the automobile production, together with the rise in the repair and maintenance activities, is likely to propel the demand for these materials in the automotive industry considerably, justifying its prominent position among end users.
Engineering plastics and composites are the main types of metal replacement materials available, worldwide. Polycarbonates, polyamides, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), thermoplastic polyesters, fluoropolymers, and polyacetals are the prime engineering plastics and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and glass fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP) are the main composites traded in this market. Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene has surfaced as the most valued engineering plastic across the world and is closely followed by polycarbonates and polyamides. Among composites, the demand for GFRP is higher than CFRP and the trend is anticipated to remain so over the next few years.

Global Metal Replacement Market: Drivers and Restraints
The growth of the global metal replacement market is primarily fuelled by end-user sectors such as aerospace and defense and construction. In recent times, infrastructural development has gained significant traction, particularly in developing countries. This has led to the initiation of several residential and commercial construction projects. As a result, there is an upswing in the demand for metal replacing materials in the construction sector to replace steel rods for concrete reinforcement as well as to produce sewage systems. Moreover, the growing use of engineering plastics as an alternative to traditional materials in end-user industries is providing a fillip to the market.
On the flip side, the high cost of metal replacing materials is limiting their widespread adoption. Furthermore, the volatile prices of crude oil are negatively impacting the manufacturing of engineering plastics, as crude oil serves as a raw material. This, in turn, is hampering the growth of the material. However, emerging countries are likely to present immense growth opportunities for the metal replacement market.
Global Metal Replacement Market: Geographical Segmentation
On the basis of geography, the key segments studied in the report are North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.
