Global Thermoplastic Composites Market: Overview
Rising demand for polyamide as composite
The polymer is useful for a wide range of applications that require plastic materials with a high melting temperature. Applications involving a lot of wear and tear often prefer polyamides compared to conventional engineered plastics. Furthermore, the high flexibility to be combined with other materials and low friction of polyamides make them an ideal material to be used for various large-volume standard products such as gears, bushings, and plastic bearings. Thus, the growing demand for polyamides as composites from various applications, including automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, coatings, surgical sutures, and others will lead to the expansion of the global thermoplastic composites market at a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period.
The growing use of fiber-reinforced composite materials in medical applications
The development of polymer composite materials in recent years has led to technological advances across a wide range of applications in modern orthopedic medicine and prosthetic devices. Composites exhibit superior strength and excellent biocompatibility compared to conventional monolithic materials. This has further led to an increase in demand for fiber-reinforced polymer composites in the medical sector. These composites are often used in orthopedic surgery due to their excellent fatigue characteristics, radiolucency, and high strength-to-weight ratios. Furthermore, their extraordinary properties make them viable to be used for orthotic and prosthetic devices as well as in components for large-scale MRI equipment. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
