Dublin, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Natural Fiber Reinforced Composites Market Size, Segments, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast 2022-2030 by Fiber Type, Polymer, End-user Industry, and Region" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Natural fiber composites (NFCs) are a type of composite material in which the reinforcing fibers are generated from renewable and carbon dioxide-neutral fiber types like plants or wood. According to this analysis, the natural fiber reinforced composites market is expected to record a positive CAGR of over 9% during the forecast period (2022-2030) and is expected to reach approximately US$ 12 billion by 2030, owing to their greener nature and contribution to sustainable practice. Natural fibers have garnered significant interest from industry players and researchers for the utilization of polymer composites.

To better balance environmental concerns with social and economic issues, some sectors have transitioned toward sustainable technology which is in turn pushing up the natural fiber reinforced composites market.

The market for natural fiber reinforced composites is expanding primarily as a result of rising environmental concerns and the consequent rise in demand for bio-based composite materials. These composite fibers are made from several plants' bast, or outside stem. When compared to items made from oil, the use of these composites can cut carbon footprint by nearly 50%. These natural fibers are also up to 100% recyclable. All of these factors are fueling market expansion.

Another factor driving the market growth is the rising use of bio-based fiber composite in the automotive industry. These are widely used in the fabrication of electric car components because of their lightweight qualities. Due to their competitive stiffness and strength compared to other synthetic fibers as well as their better acoustic insulation properties, these composites are also employed in vehicle door panels, floor panels, underfloor pans, seat backs, and trunk liners.

By 2025, the Chinese government plans to have at least 5,000 fuel cell electric vehicles on the road, and by 2030 this number is expected to reach one million. The Chinese market for natural fiber reinforced composites is anticipated to be driven by the government's promotion of electric, hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles.

  • Natural fibers also possess a negative characteristic known as hygroscopicity which is posing a negative impact on the market because, when a hygroscopic material is pneumatically transported, it may collect moisture from the air being used to transport the material and become extremely cohesive, which will cause it to have poor flowability

  • Natural fiber composites' susceptibility to moisture absorption has a number of detrimental implications on their characteristics, which in turn affects how well they perform over time. For instance, increased moisture reduces their mechanical qualities

  • To prevent the issue different techniques are adopted, for example, wood flour is prevented from absorbing moisture due to its encapsulation by the polypropylene matrix, and the level of encapsulation is higher for the composite made with 20% wood flour than it is for the composite made with 40% wood flour
