Sheet Molding Compounds: Weight Reduction Applications in Automobiles Drive Sales

Published on : Sep 27, 2019

Albany, New York, September 27, 2019: The demand for sheet molding compounds is growing rapidly and is estimated to grow to a value of ~USD 2 billion through 2019. Applications in the massive global automotive industry is estimated to remain the key driver being the growth of the industry. In addition, sheet molding compounds will also gain substantial traction with new applications in the consumer goods sector.

An increasing number of manufacturers in the automotive industry are seeking light weight, solid materials and are consequently likely to reduce their use of steel in favor of sheet molding compounds in the near future.

These insights are derived from the intelligence report, titled, “Global Market Study on Sheet Molding Compounds: ‘Compact’ Devices and ‘Lightweight’ Vehicles to Drive Sales” which has been added recently to the Market Research Hub’s (MRH) ever-expanding repository.

Sheet Molding Compounds to be challenged by Light-fiber Injection

The global sheet molding compound market is likely grow at a steady rate of ~6 per cent CAGR, through the end of the forecast period in 2029. However, this growth is also expected to face challenges owing to the increased availability of feasible alternatives such as light fiber injection (LFI). LFI is known for its lower production costs. In addition the material is just as light as sheet molding compounds.

Consequently, the demand for sheet molding compounds could decline in the years ahead with the aim of boosting the economic feasibility of end use operations. In addition, the growth of sheet molding compounds will also decrease owing to the high costs associated with carbon fiber.
