Thermoset Resin Composites Market- Dynamics

Surging Demand for Lightweight Vehicles Creates Sustained Opportunities

The demand for lightweight vehicles is underway, as motorists are heading toward lightweight variants with enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. The rising trend of lightweight vehicles is creating significant demand for composites, which in turn is triggering adoption of thermoset resin composites. Moreover, vehicle electrification is also likely to bolster demand for thermoset resin composites, as manufacturing lighter electric cars entails reduction of weight of the batteries as well as electric motors used.

Polyester Remains the Highly-Preferred Thermoset Resin Composite Type

Demand for polyester thermoset resin composites are likely to be high, owing to wide-spread use across multiple applications. Unsaturated polyesters are being used in multiple applications, including wind energy, electrical & electronics pipes, and tanks. Moreover, versatility offered by polyester thermoset resin composites is one among the key pacesetters fostering adoption across multiple applications. In addition, polyester thermoset resin composites are highly economical and offer high water resistance, which makes an ideal investment across multiple end-use applications.

Pipe & Tank Evolves as a Significant End-User, Superior Corrosion Resistance Enhances Product Visibility

The pipe and tank industry is likely to emerge as a key end user for manufacturers of thermoset resin composites to reap sizeable revenues during the forecast period. Thermoset resin composites play a vital role in seamless manufacturing of large as well as small diameter pipes and tanks, on account of their excellent resistance to different types of corrosion, including aerobic and galvanic corrosion. However, tough competition from advanced materials having similar competencies is likely to arrest the adoption of thermoset resin composites, creating significant challenges for the manufacturing from profit-making standpoint.
