CFRP composite manufacturing trends
Keeping an eye on technology and market trends may be important in most
industries, but in the world of composite materials, it is essential.

F

rom raw materials to design and manufacturing
innovations, the pace
of change in this industry is
remarkable.
Here are the trends that 9T
Labs believe you need to know
to keep pace in 2019.

Accelerated adoption of
thermoplastic composites
The trend: Companies across
industries have shown an increased interest in thermoplastics in recent years, including
car manufacturing companies
such as BMW and Audi, and
aircraft manufacturers such as
Boeing and Airbus. According
to Mordor Intelligence, the
thermoplastic composites industry was worth $17 billion
in 2017 and is predicted to
grow at a compound annual
growth rate (CAGR) of 6.24%
between 2018 and 2023. This
trend can be observed in most
parts of the world, with the

Asia-Pacific region dominating the thermoplastic market,
followed by North America
and Europe.
Driving forces: The accelerated
use of thermoplastic composites is due both to perennial
factors and to innovations -
some of which have occurred
in just the past few months.
The most significant among
these are:
-- Lightweighting: Interest in
materials that weigh less

continues to grow across
industries and across the
globe. The costs associated
with fuel, maintenance,
logistics, and installation
are significantly reduced in
tandem with a decreased
part weight. Less fuel consumption also means less
impact on the environment,
and this is prompting new
fuel economy standards for
many regions and industries.
When a vehicle or other end

-- Lower-cost composite manufacturing: In the past, despite
offering several advantages
compared to other materials, thermoset composites
have been hampered by the
capital investment and/or
high labour costs, as well
as the relatively high cycle
times of composites manufacturing. By transitioning
to thermoplastic composites,
manufacturers gain two
key advantages: (1) in-situ
processing, which eliminates
additional
post-processing
or curing cycles; and (2)
overall reduced cycle times
of seconds rather than
minutes for thermoplastic
versus thermoset composites.
Advancements such as 3D
printing of thermoplastic
composites (discussed below)
are opening up new application opportunities.
