(Aviation-NewsWire.Com, November 16, 2021 ) The report "Unidirectional Tapes (UD Tapes) Market by Fiber Type (Glass, Carbon), Resin (Thermoplastic, Thermoset), End-use Industry (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Sports & Leisure), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific) - Global Forecasts to 2025" is projected to grow from USD 151 million in 2020 to USD 256 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 11.1%. There has been wide acceptance of UD tapes in various industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, sports & leisure, which is expected to drive the market. The increasing use of UD tapes in primary & secondary structures of commercial aircraft and the high demand for commercial aircraft are driving the UD tapes market in the aerospace industry.
The thermoplastic resin segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the UD tapes market, by resin, during the forecast period.
The thermoplastic resin segment accounts for the larger share of the overall UD tapes market. These tapes are used in a large number of industries, including aerospace & defense, automotive, and sporting goods. They are widely used in the aerospace & defense industry due to their toughness, high strength, moisture absorption resistance, high-performance properties, and ability to survive under high temperature conditions.
The glass fiber segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the UD tapes market, by fiber, during the forecast period.
Glass fiber dominates the global UD tapes market owing to its ease of processing and manufacturing as compared to carbon fiber, which is very difficult to process. Glass fiber-based UD tapes are used in a number of industries such as automotive, industrial engineering, and high-performance sports equipment. They are produced in large volumes for structural components of automobiles and for applications in sports and aerospace & defense industries.
The aerospace & defense segment is estimated to be the largest end-use industry in the UD tapes market during the forecast period.
The aerospace industry accounted for the largest share, in terms of value, of the UD tapes market in 2019. This is due to the high demand for carbon fiber composites in commercial passenger aircraft. UD tapes are used in aircraft seat frames as it reduces the weight of the aircraft seats by 30% in comparison to traditional aluminum frame seats. It is also used in lightweight sandwich panels for ultralight aircraft. However, the growth of the aerospace industry for the next two years remains uncertain due to the COVID-19 pandemic and backlog in orders of aircraft deliveries by Boeing, Airbus, and other regional jet makers.
