A composite material consists of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibers is fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP), also known as fiber-reinforced polymer, or fiber-reinforced plastic. Typically the fibers are glass (in fiberglass), carbon (in polymer-reinforced carbon fiber), aramid, or basalt. Due to its special properties such as durability and low weight, the improved plastic is commonly used in the automotive industry. In addition, high resistance to corrosion and chemical attacks has increased the market for tubing, chemical storage vessels and fume scrubbers in the chemical industry. The role of reinforced plastics in the automotive segment is growing due to the rising availability in emerging economies which are growing demand for finished and highly polished cars.

Owing to various applications in the construction industry, the global demand for reinforced plastics is expected to grow during the forecast period. Special properties such as low weight and easy maintenance have made this product popular in the building and design industries. Due to growing development activities in emerging nations such as India and China, the construction sector is expected to grow over the forecast period. In the marine industry, reinforced plastics are used to construct ships, replace wood and steel buildings and help provide various paint choices, high gloss, and weather protection. Due to special properties such as mouldability, high-quality surface finishes, and low weight, these are often implemented in the automotive industry. Due to growing disposable incomes and improved living standards in emerging economies, the automotive industry is expected to expand significantly. These multiple variables are expected to drive the reinforced plastics market during the forecast period. However, lower raw material supply and price volatility are expected to have a negative effect on the product market during the forecast period.

The global reinforced plastics market is segmented based on fiber type, polymers, applications, and region. By fiber type, the market is classified into glass fiber, carbon, aramid fiber and others. Based on polymer, the market is segmented into thermoset and thermoplastic. Based on application, the market is divided into automotive, building & construction, aerospace & aviation, wind energy, marine, electrical & electronics, others. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Some of the key players operating in the global reinforced plastics market are BASF SE, Binani Industries, Cytec Solvay Group, Haysite Reinforced Plastics, Reinforced Plastic Industries, Rezplast Manufacturing Ltd., SGL Carbon SE, Taishan Fiberglass Inc., Teijin Limited, and Toray Industries Inc.
