Composite Repairs Market Segment Analysis – by Process

Vacuum infusion held the largest share in the Composite Repairs market share in 2021 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Vacuum infusion, in comparison with other processes such as vacuum bag sealing, provides certain benefits such as providing a better fiber-to-resin ratio, creating less waste and making very consistent use of reins. Furthermore, unlike vacuum bag sealing, the vacuum infusion process provides an unlimited time set to detect leaks in the composite. Vacuum infusion also helps in making precision-based composite components that are used during high-level customization. The precise and time-effective features of vacuum infusion are contributing factors to its growing preference over other repair processes in the major sector such as aerospace. This will positively impact the segment growth during the forecast period. 

Composite Repairs Market Segment Analysis – by End-use Industry

Aerospace held the largest share in the Composite Repairs Market share in 2021 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Composite materials are majorly used in the aerospace sector in structural components such as fuselage, wings and landing gear and mechanical components such as brake calipers, master cylinders and fluid reservoirs. To keep such aircraft components fully operational, timely repairs are necessary. With the growing demand for more aircraft to tackle the growing air passenger traffic, the number of composite repairs is anticipated to increase. According to the General Aviation of Manufacturer Association, in 2021, total airplane shipments stood at 2,646 units, showing a 9.4% increase in comparison to 2,419 units delivered in 2020. Such an increase in aircraft deliveries will accelerate the usage of Composite Repair processes such as vacuum infusion in the aerospace sector, which is projected to boost the market growth in the aerospace sector during the forecast period.

Composite Repairs Market Segment Analysis – by Geography

North America held the largest share in the Composite Repairs Market share (up to 38%) in 2021. The rising demand for composite repairs in the North American countries namely the US, Canada and Mexico is influenced by significantly growing end-use industries, such as aerospace, automotive and construction. According to annual reports of the US aircraft manufacturer, Boeing, the company delivered 340 aircraft in 2021, showing a 116% increase in comparison to 157 delivered in 2020. Also, according to Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography, in Q2 of 2021, the construction industry in Mexico posted a high year-on-year growth rate of 33.8%. Furthermore, according to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, in 2019, Canada’s light commercial vehicle production stood at 1.4 million units, showing a 6% increase compared to 2018. With such significant growth in these sectors, the demand for composite repairs for structural and component applications also flourished, which resulted in a positive growth of the Composite Repairs Industry in the North American region during the forecast period.

Composite Repairs Market Drivers

Flourishing Automotive Production:

Composite materials find major applicability in the automotive sector where they are used in various components ranging from beneath-the-hood electrical & heat-shielding components to exterior and interior structural parts. These components require time-to-time repair work to maintain the structural and operational integrity of the vehicle. The growing demand for new automobiles coupled with technological upgrades and new product development of many parts have increased the production level of the automotive sector. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, in 2021, global automotive production stood at 80.1 million units, showing a 3% increase compared to 2020. Such an increase in automotive production would accelerate the usage of composite repair processes such as vacuum infusion and scarf repair for various composite applications in the automotive sector. This would significantly impact the growth opportunities for the Composite Repairs Industry during the forecast period.

Launching of New Wind Energy Projects:

Composite Materials are mainly used in blades and nacelles of wind turbines due to their low weight, high strength and design flexibility. Blades being the most important parts of wind turbines require maintenance 2-3 times a year. Wind energy is primarily used for electricity generation and with the growing shift towards sustainable energy sources for electricity, countries have started undertaking various wind energy projects. According to WindEurope, in 2021, US$48.38 billion was invested in major European countries including the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Sweden for the construction of new wind farms in Europe. Furthermore, the US Energy Department, in 2021, announced five new wind energy projects which would produce 2GW of power. With the increase in the number of wind energy projects, the demand for composite repairs process in the energy generation sector will also flourish during the forecast period, thereby positively impacting the Composite Repairs Industry growth.

Composite Repairs Market Challenge

Availability of Substitutes:

Alternative to Composite Repairs such as using self-healing composite can pose a challenge in the growth of the composite repairs industry. The major issue with composite repairs is that they are mainly based on time-consuming manual labor, due to which the process becomes expensive. Self-healing composites, on the other side, are capable of automatic recovery when get damaged and offer other benefits like getting greater mechanical properties after getting healed. The presence of cost-effective substitutes like self-healing composites would enable the major industrial sectors such as automotive and aerospace to reduce their manual repair costs. This could negatively impact the usage of composite repair processes and technologies such as vacuum infusion and scarf repair in these major sectors which could slow down the market growth of the Composite Repairs Industry in the forecast period, negatively impacting the Composite Repairs Market size.
