Region :Global | Report ID: FBI107250 | Status : Ongoing



Functional composites are materials with mechanical integrity formed by combining two or more different kinds of material distinct in chemical and physical properties. Combining the functional composites offers magnetic, electrical, and optical properties and enhances mechanical and environmental resistance. Thus the product is widely used in various applications, including consumer goods, electronics, and transportation, as it offers thermal and electrical conductivity. Additionally, these functional composite offers a specific role in addressing climate change and lightweight problems.

The market's growth is associated with the growing applications of functional composites in the end-use industries as these composites are widely utilized in consumer goods, electronics, and transpiration industries. These industries consume these function composite differently in variety of ways including thermal or electrical conductive material. Moreover, the rise in the electric vehicle market is boosting the product as the functional composite offers light weight and extreme resistance against various weather conditions. Additionally, the usage of functional composites enables morphological structures, tunable chemical, and high stability in the automotive components. More than 100 transportation models utilize carbon-reinforced plastic for OEM components in the automotive industry. For instance, BMW adopted these functional composites in their vehicles models such as BMW M3, BMW M4. Thus, all these mentioned factors are expected to drive the market.

However, the functional composite material is utilized in various end-use industries, but the product's high price is expected to hinder the market growth. The cost is associated with the increased price of the metal and polymeric composites and the costly manufacturing process required to produce them. Moreover, the traditional structure offers easy maintenance compared to the functional composite structures, which also restrains the market growth. Thus, the functional composites are expected to consume a small amount when utilized. All these mentioned factors are anticipated to hinder the market growth.                                                                                                              

Impact of COVID-19 on the Functional Composites Market

The pandemic of Covid-19 impacted nearly every sector of the market. This has created a massive decrease in demand for functional composites. Most consumer goods, electronics, and transportation manufacturers had to decrease their production capacity to maintain social distancing and neutralize the effect of the covid-19 virus, resulting in a short-term or temporary disruption in business operations for the end-use industries. Despite the disruption in the supply chain, the government of highly impacted countries such as China and India had to impose the lockdown on business operations. This has resulted in the halted manufacturing operations of the product. For instance, end-use industries such as transportation faced abnormal demand-supply requirements as necessitate became the priority.

Despite the uncertainties, the market has been moderately profitable as the functional composites utilized in the operational medical sector surged the demand for packaging material.
