Lucintel Analyzes Natural Fiber Composites Outlook for 2011 and Beyond: Market to Reach US $531.3 Million by 2016

10/10/2011 — DALLAS, TX — (BUSINESS WIRE)–The natural fiber composites market has experienced growth over the last five years and is expected to continue its growth momentum, reaching approximately US $531.3 million in 2016 with an 11% CAGR over the next five years.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the natural fiber composites market and presents its findings in its report Natural Fiber Composites Market Trend and Forecast 2011–2016: Trend, Forecast and Opportunity Analysis.”

Natural fiber composites are becoming more prevalent in use because of increasing environmental awareness and the materials’ relatively low cost and low density. The demand for component materials that are durable, reliable, lightweight, and with excellent mechanical properties is fueling the growing demand for natural fiber in various industries such as automotive and building and construction.

Lucintel’s research indicates that the application of natural fiber composites has increased and is gaining preference over glass fiber in some applications. Increasing use of natural fiber composites in automotive applications is driving the market. Indeed, automotive is expected to remain the largest market through 2016. Several automotive components are now produced using natural composites, which are generally based on polypropylene resin and fibers such as flax, hemp, kenaf, or sisal. The automotive industry’s adoption of natural fiber composites is led by price, weight reduction, recycling and marketing incentives rather than technical demands. The range of products is no longer restricted to interior and non-structural components such as door panels or rear shelves.

In terms of value shipment, Europe is expected to continue its dominance. North America is expected to be the second-largest region in terms of value shipment by 2016.

Lucintel’s report provides detailed trend and forecast data for the natural fiber composites market; specifically, forecasts for material and end product applications from 2011‒2016. The report analyzes drivers, recent developments, Porter’s Five Forces model, growth opportunities in natural fiber composites in applications, and more.
