Increasing Lightweight Vehicle Adoption Augmenting Biocomposite Production

Biocomposites Market

According to the 2022 World Population Review, the world military expenditure stood at $1.917 trillion in 2019. As per this report, governments of the U.S., China, Saudi Arabia, India, the U.K., Germany, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and France spent $750 billion, $237 billion, $67.6 billion, $61 billion, $55.1 billion, $50 billion, $49 billion, $48 billion, $44 billion, and $41.5 billion, respectively, on their defense sectors. Governments around the world are increasing their military expenditure to address geopolitical tensions and ensure national security.

In an attempt to ensure security, countries are focusing on creating sturdy military aircraft, which can be made from biocomposites. Thus, the surging need for new and advanced military aircraft will help the biocomposites market prosper in the foreseeable future. Aircraft manufacturers use wood-plastic composites in military aircraft, due to their high thermal, chemical, and mechanical strength. Owing to such advantages, these composite materials have become an essential part of the airframe structure of a military aircraft.

Additionally, the surging need for lightweight materials in the automobile industry to develop fuel-efficient vehicles that adhere to the vehicle safety standards of governments will also increase the consumption of biocomposites worldwide. Nowadays, automobile OEMs are increasingly using natural fiber composites in doors, windows, dashboards, and driver cabins to reduce overall vehicle weight. In addition, automakers use wood-plastic composites in rear shelves and trims for trunks, headliners, spare wheels, interior trim for doors, and seat bases.

Apart from the automotive and aerospace industries, the construction, medical, packaging, and consumer goods sectors also use biocomposites to reduce environmental degradation. In comparison to synthetic composites, natural composites have higher fiber content, lower environmental impacts, and lower cost, owing to which end users are shifting from plastic composites to biocomposites. Natural composites help mitigate air pollution and solve landfill issues, owing to which researchers and scientists are actively working toward deriving composites from natural sources.

In the years gone by, end users have preferred structural biocomposites over non-structural variants, due to the superior load-bearing property of the former. Structural biocomposites are used in the construction of stairs, furniture, roof systems, and framing components. Biocomposites used in these application areas are produced by Meshlin Composites ZRT, Jelu-Werk J. Ehrler GmbH & Co. Kg, Tecnaro GmbH, Alpas SRL, Green Bay Decking LLC, MCG Bio Composites LLC, Universal Forest Products Inc., and Flexform Technologies.

According to P&S Intelligence, the APAC region led the biocomposites market in the last few years, owing to the rapid industrialization in regional countries. Additionally, the burgeoning use of lightweight materials in the automotive and aerospace industries will also encourage the use of biocomposites in the region. Besides, the rising need for non-toxic, moisture and thermal resistant, and biodegradable materials in the construction sector will also propel the use of such composites in APAC countries.

Thus, the increasing demand for military aircraft and the surging use of lightweight materials in the automobile sector will facilitate the consumption of biocomposites, worldwide.
