Growth Opportunities for Composites in Australia: 2009-2014: Trends and Forecast Analysis, November 2009
Australia continues to be one of the world’s most stable economies. As a developed economy closely linked to the Asia-Pacific region, Australia has consistently outpaced large comparable economies in Europe and North America. In terms of commodities exports and business services, the Australian economy continues to benefit from demand in regional markets.

There are more than 100 companies involved in production and distribution of raw materials and auxiliary products, services and transformation of composites, for several and important segments of the Australian Economy. Australia is a member of the OECD (Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development) and has traditionally has been credited with a strong manufacturing base. Moreover the economic growth of Australia has been indicative of the rapid strides the economy has been able to achieve in terms of economic and per capita income growth.

According to Lucintel’s new report “Growth Opportunities for Composites in Australia: 2009–2014: Trends and Forecast Analysis”- In the next 5 yrs that is by 2014, the materials market in Australia is expected to reach $180.3 million in value and the composites raw material consumption is expected to grow with a CAGR of 2.2% while the composites End Product market is expected to reach $ 515 million with a CAGR of 3.6%.The Australian composite industry is in the growth trajectory and found to be more mature than Asian Economies such as China and India but less mature than developed markets such as Western Europe and the United States. The Australian composites market is characterized by presence of global players – Reichhold, Ashland, Owens Corning, Nuplex Industries, PPG, Cytec, Hexcel, and Gurit in the materials side. In the applications side Australia has a very strong manufacturing base with the presence of world’s largest car manufacturers, aircraft manufacturing company and Tier 1 suppliers such as Hawker di Havilland, GKN, Australian Aerospace ltd, and some very big fabricators like Bolwell, RPC Technologies etc.

A lot of changes are happening in the Australian composites market. The rapid growth in the Australian composites market is spurred by growth in grating, pultrusion, construction, automotive, electrical, and the electronics market. In the last five years the average growth in the overall Australian composites market was in double digits. This report discusses the most recent developments in the Australian composites market.
