Key Takeaways
  • Asia-Pacific dominates the Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials market owing to increasing demand from applications such as automotive, aviation and construction industries. 
  • The growing popularity because of the good properties and superior advantages of natural fiber over synthetic fibers in term of its relatively low weight, low cost, is likely to aid in the market growth of Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials.
  • Increasing adoption of sustainable and environment friendly products, implementation of stringent government regulations increase the market demand for Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials in the near future.
  • The hydrophilic nature of natural fiber reinforced composites is expected to hinder the market growth, due to poor dimensional stability, processability, and porous nature. 

Source - Segment Analysis
Kenaf segment holds the largest share in the Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials market. The kenaf fibers are one of the important fibers belongs to bast fibers. Kenaf is a fibrous plant. They are stiff, strong, and tough and have high resistance to insecticides.  The fibers are extracted from flowers, outer fiber, and inner core. The outer fiber is known as bast which makes 40% of the stalks dry weight and the inner core comprises of 60% of stalks dry weight. The kenaf plants upon harvesting are processed by using a mechanical fiber separator and the whole stalk is used in pulping. The extracted fibers must be treated chemically or bacterially to separate it from the non-fibrous substances like wax, pectin, and other substances (Suharty et al., 2016; Arjmandi et al., 2017). These fibers can be converted into fine woven fabrics. these fibers are made as composites along with other materials and are used in automotive, construction, packaging, furniture, textiles, mats, paper pulp, and others. When continuous fibers are used, the fiber architecture can have more than one-dimension. In the one-dimensional architecture, the twist angle and the level of alignment of continuous-filament yarns play a significant role in determining the load. some modifications in the chemical and physical properties of the lignocellulosic fibers can be observed after the treatment of the fiber of rubber wood with laccase enzymes.

End Use - Segment Analysis
Automotive sector has been the primary market for Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials. Kenaf fiber offers many added advantages in term of low density with higher specific strength and stiffness. Also, it benefits in term of low hazard during the manufacturing processes and low emissions of toxic fumes when subject to heat. Moreover, it also reciprocates oxygen to the environment, is a renewable fiber source, and has the benefit of lower production costs. Surface treatments are an approach used to minimize the incompatibility gap between hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials. These treatments modify the fiber structure, which repairs the mechanical bonding to the polymers. Others than the materials selected, the manufacturing process and machinability seems crucial for their ability to enhance overall performance. The manufacturing process, in term of injection molding and compression molding aids in dispersion and interparticle distance between the composite matrix. Based on the Avrami method, Avrami–Ozawa method, and Friedman method, the corresponding crystallization kinetics of PP reinforced with different acetylation levels of bamboo fibers were further analyzed.

Geography - Segment Analysis
APAC dominated the Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials market with a share of more than x%, followed by North America and Europe as, Natural fiber Reinforcement materials are majorly used in automotive industry Countries such as India, China, Japan are the major market in this region. According to the annual report of OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers), for most vehicles manufactured in year 2018, China, India & Japan are in the top 20 countries around world. In which China has ranked 6th whereas India & Japan are ranked 14th and 18th respectively. So, in countries like these there is a chance of huge growth opportunity for Natural Fiber Reinforcement materials market.

Drivers – Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials Market
  • Replacement for Glass fiber 
The replacement of glass fibers with natural fibers for reinforcement in polymer composites appears to be a modern phenomenon. NFCs have vast potential as construction materials and as a replacement of other structural materials (e.g., GRP, steel, concrete) in many applications. The range of natural fiber composites is very diverse, but composites in building construction could be categorized into four main divisions: namely, particle/short fiber reinforced, long natural fiber reinforced, nano (cellulose) composites and consolidated composites.

  • Implementation of Stringent Environment Regulations
Implementation of Governments Stringent Environment Regulations towards eco-friendly products are likely to aid in the growth of Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials (NFPC) Market. Natural fibers with a high specific stiffness and strength can be produced by adding the tough and light-weight natural fiber into polymer. Natural fiber is considered one of the environmentally friendly materials which have good properties compared to synthetic fiber. The biological, chemical, environmental, as well as economic assets of natural fibers can effectively enhance the final properties of the natural fiber composites and their implementation in various industrial applications.  

Challenges – Natural Fiber Reinforcement Materials Market
