Market Overview

The Global Construction Composite Market size is evaluated at USD 17,157.38 million in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of ~6.14% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020 as the pandemic across the world has severely impacted international trade and hampered several industries including manufacturing, and building, and construction, among others. As per the reports by the IMF, the global GDP contracted by -3.27% in 2020, majorly owing to international trade suspension and supply chain disruption. Moreover, the manufacturing sector’s growth in 2020 was recorded for negative trends with over -10% dip. As a result, it impacted construction materials production in 2020.

  • Over the medium term, the factors driving the growth of the market studied are the increasing usage of composites in construction applications, rehabilitation of old concrete structures, and other factors, such as rapid urbanization, economic growth in major economies, and strong adherence to green building norms.
  • On the flip side, the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the composite industry’s growth and the supply chain disruptions, as well as the high initial production and installation costs of composites, are hindering the growth of the market studied.
  • However, the increasing ability to mass-produce composites in the construction sector is likely to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.
  • North America region is expected to dominate the market. Asia-Pacific region is likely to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Scope of the report

Composite materials such as carbon fiber, which is the most popular material for producing thermoplastic composites, are widely being accepted in construction applications owing to their superior benefits over traditional construction materials. Durability, design flexibility, and high performance at elevated temperature are among the major benefits offered by the composites to the construction structures. The construction composites market is segmented by resin type, fiber type, end-use sector, and geography. By resin type, the market is segmented into Polyester Resin, Vinyl Ester, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Epoxy Resin, and Other Resin Types. By fiber type, the market is segmented into Carbon Fibers, Glass Fibers, Natural Fibers, and Other Fiber Types. By end-use sector, the market is segmented into Industrial, Commercial, Housing, and Civil. The report also covers the market size and forecasts for the construction composites market in 16 countries across major regions. For each segment, the market sizing and forecasts have been done on the basis of revenue (USD million).

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from Civil Construction Sector

  • Civil construction is involved in the building of bridges, dams, roads, airports, canals, railway infrastructure, and related buildings.
  • In China, Edging toward the end of 2021, several Chinese provinces in recent days have announced major infrastructure projects. South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region unveiled a batch of major construction projects last week, with a total investment of 185.9 billion yuan (USD 29.15 billion). Those projects cover a wide range of sectors, including transportation, new energy, logistics and basic infrastructure.
  • Furthermore, China plans to expand its railway network, the second largest in the world, by one-third in the next decade and a half, as part of a long-term plan to propel urbanization and stimulate local economies. According to a plan issued by state-owned China State Railway Group, China aims to have about 200,000 kilometers (124,274 miles) of railway tracks by the end of 2035, including about 70,000 km of high-speed railway.
  • In Germany, the Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is planning to invest EUR 300 million in future technologies, such as electric mobility or automated and networked driving for electric vehicle charging infrastructure, which, in turn, is further expected to increase the consumption of composite materials.​Furthermore, The country has started working on the A49 highway project connecting Schwalmstadt and the Ohmtal interchange in Central Hesse.
  • This project is based on the public-private partnership model with an investment of EUR 700 million with a total construction of 93 Km road and is expected to complete in the third quarter of 2024. These massive railway and road construction projects will drive the demand for construction composites during the forecast period.​
  • In 2020, the United Kingdom government announced the investment of EUR 27.4 billion by 2025 for road construction projects under the second road investment strategy (RIS2). Highways England Company Limited is a government-owned company responsible for operating, maintaining, and improving the country road has further planned to spend EUR 27.4 billion.​
  • The country is also investing in railway projects, including constructing a new rail network and redeveloping the existing railway network. The great north rail project is one such project with an investment of EUR 13 billion, and the project is expected to complete by 2022.
  • Furthermore, In Canada, as a part of the ‘Investing in Canada Plan’, the government has announced plans of making an investment of nearly USD 140 billion for major infrastructure developments in the country by 2028. In 2019-20, the government was in plans to approve investments valuing USD 5.6 billion for new infrastructure projects in the country.
  • All such factors are likely to influence the civil construction sector, thereby affecting the construction composites market.
