Composite preforms are essentially fibers of selected composition arranged in varying 2D and 3D forms to build the required shape. Nowadays composite preforms are preferred over the traditional materials, such as aluminum, steel, iron, and more, due to their low weight, high durability, and resistance to corrosion. Composite preforms find wide applications in global metallurgical, aerospace & defense, and heavy mechanical industries as they are the basic raw material to these industries and have high potential to be customized.
Aerospace followed by the automotive industry are expected to be the major consumers of composite preforms for the next five years. The requirement of all the end-user industries to obtain designs for higher efficiencies and reducing number of natural mineral deposits throughout the world are expected to majorly drive the market. However, strict industrial requirements and inability of certain composites to meet the technical requirements may hold back the market a bit. The emerging economies along with R&D projects of numerous space agencies such as NASA, ESA and ISRO provide excellent opportunities for composite preforms.
