Worldwide Composite Process Materials Industry to 2026 - Featuring Diatex, Precision Fabrics and Sappi Limited Among Others -

July 12, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 12, 2021--

The “Composite Process Materials Market Size, Share, Trend, Forecast, & Industry Analysis: 2021-2026” report has been added to’s offering.

Overall, the composite process materials market witnessed a massive decline in 2020 but is estimated to bounce back swiftly, reaching the market value of US$ 1.15 billion in 2026.

  • Airtech Advanced Materials Group
  • Diatex S.A
  • Gascogne Group
  • Lintec Corporation
  • Loparex LLC.
  • Mondi Plc
  • Precision Fabrics Group
  • Sappi Limited
  • Solvay SA (Composites One Acquired the Process Materials Business of Solvay)
  • The 3M Company
  • Wausau Paper (Part of Essity)


Generally, process materials are considered a waste as these materials are waste once composite parts are fabricated or prepreg is laid onto the mold. However, the publisher considers these materials as “Process Efficiency Enhancer” which play a critical role in achieving the requisite performance of composite parts. Process materials are used at two different levels: release liners used during prepreg manufacturing, and vacuum consumables used during composite parts manufacturing through manufacturing processes such as VARTM, Lite-RTM, prepreg layup/vacuum bag, and wet layup. Process materials consist of several materials including vacuum bagging film, release liner, peel ply, breathers & bleeders, flow media, sealant tapes, fittings & hoses, etc. Vacuum consumables perform a major function of reducing surplus air and resin from the laminate and optimize the fiber-resin ratio which results in improved performance and reduced VOC emissions.

The demand for process materials in the composites industry is highly subjected to the performance of major end markets such as aerospace, wind energy, marine, and automotive. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the demand for process materials varies from industry to industry. For instance, aerospace & defense emerged out to be the biggest victims with demand fell over 30% in 2020. On the other hand, the wind energy industry flourished with a robust growth of mid-teens in 2020 propelled by huge wind turbine installations in China and the USA. Furthermore, the exceptional growth in the wind energy segment has partially offset the decline enumerated in other markets (aerospace & defense, transportation, and marine).
