Reduce the time it takes to make an epoxy composite item.
The wind energy industry is driving up demand for epoxy composites.
Environmental rules have been adopted by governments in Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America in order to minimise greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, there has been a move toward renewable energy as a source of energy. In order to reduce carbon emissions, wind energy capacity is being installed at a rapid rate in these areas. For the construction of wind turbine parts such as turbine blades, nacelles, and hubs, manufacturers use lightweight materials such as epoxy composite. Due to their superior mechanical qualities, epoxy composites are replacing traditional materials such as metals and alloys in wind turbines. Parts for wind turbines must be low-maintenance and have a high strength-to-weight ratio, which epoxy composites may provide. By expanding the length of the blades, lightweight materials improve the efficiency and performance of wind turbines. Furthermore, the usage of epoxy composites provides excellent strength, stiffness, and compression strength to wind turbines, allowing them to carry more weight.

Information about the company
Additional market participants’ biographies and detailed analysis
Between 2016 and 2021, the global epoxy composite market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.34 percent, reaching USD 33.1 billion. Epoxy composites have great compression and tensile strength, as well as a low weight, high modulus of elasticity, and strong corrosion resistance. The penetration of sophisticated materials such as epoxy composite in various industries such as wind energy, aerospace & defence, automotive & transportation, sporting goods, electrical & electronics, pipe & tank, and others is driving the epoxy composite market forward. Furthermore, the epoxy composite market is benefiting from extended life and minimal maintenance requirements, fast urbanisation and economic expansion in emerging nations, and the development of novel products.
Glass, carbon, and other fibre types are categorised in the epoxy composite market. Because it is used in industries such as wind energy, electrical & electronics, and pipe & tank, and it is economically cheaper than other fibres, the glass fibre based epoxy composite market is predicted to grow quicker during the forecast period.
With the growth of epoxy composites, the high cost of research and development has been a major problem. Developing low-cost technologies is a serious problem for all researchers and important industries due to high R&D costs. As a result, epoxy composite is exclusively used in high-end applications in the automotive and transportation industries, such as luxury cars. The production of low-cost epoxy composites has the potential to raise demand from a variety of end-use industries. Epoxy composites offer a wide range of applications. Commercialization of these applications, however, has yet to commence due to prohibitive costs.
