In this market, different types of short fiber thermoplastics such as transportation, consumer goods, electrical/electronics, and others are used as end use industry. Lucintel forecasts that transportation will remain the largest end use industry by value and volume due to the wide application of SFT as it offers higher strength to weight ratio, recyclability, and have ability to mold complex shapes. Consumer goods segment is expected to witness highest growth over the forecast period due to the increasing demand for lightweight and high performance plastics.

By fiber type, glass fiber based SFT is expected to remain the largest segment over the forecast period. By resin type, polyamide based composites is expected to remain the largest segment by both value and volume. The growing use of high heat resistance thermoplastic composites is likely to drive the consumption of polyamide resin based SFT over the forecast period.

Europe is expected to remain the largest market for short fiber thermoplastics due to growing demand for lightweight and environmentally sustainable composite materials from the end use industries. ROW is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the expected increase in vehicle production and an increasing focus on lightweight composite materials.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of high temperature resistance PA6 compounds to replace PA46 and PA12 and increasing use of recycled carbon fiber in SFT. BASF, DSM, DowDuPont, SABIC, and Lanxess others are among the major short fiber thermoplastics manufacturers.
