Market Definition:

The Composites Market size was valued at USD 89.10 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 175.20 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 7.6% from 2022-2030. Composites material is a substance that is obtained by combining two or more constituent elements such as fibres, polymers and matrix materials. These individual elements are merged to produce a composite material that has distinct and dissimilar properties to that of the individual elements.

Composites have a wide variety of applications including equipment and machinery, medical, shipbuilding, building and furniture, among others. This is due to the remarkable properties of composites which includes their low weight, stiffness and strength, ease in manufacturing complex shapes, resistance to corrosion, and temperature lenience. Composites also plays a significant role in automotive industry by providing better driving experience to users and greater power to engine.

However, North America is expected to witness a rapid rise in the composites market due to the rising demand for defense & aerospace industry that incorporates composites for engine blades, brackets, interiors, and others. Also, manufacturers such as Dentsply Sirona and 3M Company approaching to wide investments, designing planned marketing strategies and strengthening long term contracts are the factors that are contributing to the growth of market in this region. For instance, in February 2020, 3M Company developed a new ergonomic syringe tip for flowable restorations while providing the ability to quickly personalize the grip for oral care solutions. 3Ms current flowable composite materials, 3M Filtek Supreme Flowable Restorative and 3M Filtek Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative features the improved syringe design, which reportedly simplifies placement.

Competitive Landscape:

The market comprises of various players such as Dentsply Sirona, IDC Composite International Inc., Kulzer GmBH, Royal DSM N.V, SGL Carbon SE, The 3M Company, Toray Industries Inc., Zeus Industrial Products Inc., Owens Corning, and Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation. These manufacturers are actively indulging merging and product launch to enhance their product and increase their growth as well as geographical reach. For instance, in March 2021, the 3M Company and Alvant merged together to enhance and accelerate the metal matrix composite technology and work together on advancing technology for electric machines. Also, in October 2020, Kulzer had launched the Venus Diamond shade composites for restoring the majority of everyday composite demands. It is a unique adaptive shade matching technology that entails optimizing the filler and resin matrix properties as well as allows restorations to blend seamlessly within natural tooth structures.
