Closed Molding Composites Market Is Expected To Climb To US$ 117.9 Billion By 2033


The size of the world market for closed moulding composites was US$ 66.2 billion in 2023, and it is anticipated to grow to US$ 117.9 billion by 2033. According to Fact.MR, the demand for closed moulding composites would grow globally over the next 10 years at a CAGR of 6%.

Closed moulding is a type of technique that makes it possible to produce superior polymer composite products faster, with fewer trash, and with less volatile gas emissions. Since open moulding techniques have poor quality and environmental issues, closed moulding techniques are replacing them. When compared to open moulding procedures, closed moulding techniques enable businesses to produce goods more swiftly and consistently. The finished pieces have greater surface aesthetics, which reduces the need for post-work.

Why are Closed Molding Composites Gaining Immense Popularity in the Aerospace & Defense Industry?

Because to the growing demand for lightweight aircraft components to improve fuel efficiency, closed moulding composites are replacing other materials, such as metals, in a variety of applications in the aerospace and defence industries.

In comparison to the majority of woods and metals, composites are lightweight. The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner is one example of a modern aircraft that uses more composite materials than metals in construction. In comparison to conventional materials, carbon fibre composites offer a better strength-to-weight ratio. The global market is being driven by the rise in demand for composites in the aerospace and military sectors.

Key Closed Molding Techniques:

  • Compression Molding: This involves placing a pre-impregnated material or “prepreg” in a mold and applying pressure and heat to form the part.
  • Resin Transfer Molding (RTM): In RTM, a dry reinforcement is placed in a closed mold, and resin is injected under pressure to saturate the fibers.
  • Vacuum Infusion: This technique involves placing dry reinforcement in a mold, and vacuum pressure is used to draw resin through the reinforcement layers.
  • Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) and Bulk Molding Compound (BMC): These involve molding pre-mixed composite materials under heat and pressure.
