Pultrusion Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2028
Pultrusion Market Introduction
Pultrusion is a process of manufacturing composite material profiles having constant cross sections and physical or material properties tailored to specific end-use requirements. The word pultrusion is the portmanteau of words ‘pull’ and ‘extrusion’. The process of pultrusion involves pulling the reinforcement materials like fibers or braided strands through a heated stationary die.
Pultruded composites are being used commonly across a vast range of end-use industries, including transportation, construction, electrical, and chemical industries. Manufacturers in the pultrusion market are introducing pultruded composites with advanced properties to suit requirements of a specific end-use applications, to gain momentum in the pultrusion market.

Pultrusion Market Dynamics
Growing Demand for Lightweight and Durable Materials to Withstand Harsh Environment Triggers Pultrusion Market Growth
Most industry players across the manufacturing sector are spurning heavy weight metal components to improve the performance characteristics of end products. Manufacturers are willing to experiment with innovative materials to explore possibilities to improve material properties of the product, and thereby, plastics and pultruded composites have been gaining popularity among them since past few years.
Leading players in the pultrusion market are introducing pultruded composites with excellent physical properties, such as heat resistance, corrosion resistance, flexibility, dielectric properties, and high strength-to-weight ratios to suit changing requirements of end-users. Thereby, the demand for flexible plastic materials with excellent performance characteristics that can withstand extreme environments is increasing, triggering growth of the pultrusion market.
High Initial Costs vis-à-vis the Pultrusion Process Create Barriers to Entry for Small Businesses in the Pultrusion Market
Though the pultrusion market is witnessing rapid growth with a widening range of its end-user industries, the need for high initial investments is creating challenges for pultrusion market players to offer competitive prices. The production costs and initial investments associated with pultruded composites are higher than its competitive materials, and this is one of the main challenges faced by players in the pultrusion market. Fabrication costs and material handling guides are the primary expenses of manufacturers in the pultrusion market and thereby, initial investments remain high in the pultrusion market. This creates major barriers to entry for new entrants in the pultrusion market.
