Report on Opportunities for Composites in the European Construction Market

Press Release   •   Aug 29, 2012 17:15 IST

Composite applications in the European construction market declined during 2005–2010 due to the collapse in residential construction, weak GDP performance, and decreased penetration. In 2010, however, the market recovered and is now poised for growth. The composites market is expected to witness a steady growth rate and reach $2.04 billion in 2016 with a CAGR of surpassing 4% over the next five years.

As the study reveals, the leading applications during the next five years are expected to be rebar, windows, bridge decks, utility poles, and architectural applications, all of which are projected to average growth of above 7.0% annually. Although no segment is projected to decline during this period, some are expected to experience slower rates of growth, such as doors, bathtubs, and fiber-reinforced plastic panels.

Lucintel’s research indicates that the composite market for construction applications is extremely price sensitive. High cost continues to be a limiting factor for developing new applications. The use of composites is growing in applications where weight savings, corrosion resistance, durability, and other performance benefits are critical. Increasing energy efficiency requirements (doors, windows); greater focus on total life-cycle cost of end products versus those manufactured of conventional materials (utility poles); GDP growth; relative prices for competing materials; and the energy and infrastructure markets are anticipated to continue to drive composites in the European construction market.

The report, which provides trend scenarios and forecast statistics for 2011–2016, details industry drivers and challenges, compares applications and prices, and highlights growth opportunities and emerging composites applications. It also describes the emerging materials for the construction industry, various manufacturing processes, and more.
