Glass fiber held the second largest market for thermoplastic tapes.
Glass fiber are used in various applications due to their low cost compared to traditional materials such as steel and aluminum. Glass fiber-based thermoplastic tapes are preferable over carbon fiber as they provide a quick and affordable way to build parts & molds and make repairs. Glass fibers are easy to process and less expensive but have low tensile strength and performance than carbon fiber. The glass fiber segment of the thermoplastic tapes market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, driven by the low cost and easy processing of fiberglass that can be used in various applications .
PA segment holds the second-highest market in 2022.
Polyamide (PA)-based compounds are widely used thermoplastic composites worldwide. Thermoplastic composites containing PA resin matrix offer an ideal combination of properties suitable for automotive, aerospace & defense, energy, industrial, and electronics applications. Polyamide is easy to process, has high resistance to heat and chemical attack, good mechanical strength, and stiffness with good dielectric properties, friction, and wear resistance. It enables automotive OEMs to reduce weight without compromising vehicle performance. Polyamide, when used along with long carbon fibers, provides higher strength in automotive applications. In the automotive & transportation industry, PA is used for door modules, bumper stiffeners, and dashboard crossbeams.
