Global composites industry in America

“The US is a key geography for the global composites industry as it represents around a third of its value”, said Mutel. JEC Americas will highlight three major segments that are expected to bring the US composites Industry to 70% of the global value by 2018: aerospace, transportation and construction.

The aerospace segment growth will be driven by the development of the global commercial fleet of aircrafts and a further penetration of aircrafts with a higher share of composites.

In the transportation segment regulations to enhance fuel efficiency and reduce CO² emissions as well as innovation are expected to lead to further penetration of Composites in this industry.

The US Building and Construction industry has been leading innovation efforts in residential housing and in infrastructure.
