Marine Composites Market

According to the report, the global marine composites market expected to reach approximately USD 2000.0 million by 2021, growing at a CAGR of around 7.1% till 2021.

Composites are a combination of one or more constituent material with different physical and chemical properties, which produce another unique characteristics material. The composite material is preferred in marine applications as they provide lighter, or less expensive when compared to traditional materials. The consumption of marine composites is more than 4 to 5% of the composite market. There are various composites used in different marine applications which include glass fiber composites, carbon fiber composites, and foam core materials.
