Lucintel Anticipates the Global Sheet Molding Compound Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5.5% http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/849327/lucintel-anticipates-the-global-sheet-molding-compound-market-to-grow-at-a-cagr-of-55 The global sheet molding compound market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2014-2019. The major driver of the sheet molding compound market is the increasing focus on lightweight materials in the automotive industry to achieve fuel efficiency. The demand for sheet molding compound is driven by the growth in end user industries, such as, transportation, electrical & electronics, and construction. Asia Pacific is the largest consumer of the sheet molding compound, driven by growth in end user industries in China and India. Lucintel Anticipates the Global Tooling Composites Market to Increase at a CAGR of 8.8% by 2019 http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/848171/lucintel-anticipates-the-global-tooling-composites-market-to-increase-at-a-cagr-of-88-by-2019 The global tooling composites market is expected to increase at a CAGR of 8.8% by 2019. The major drivers of the tooling composites market are higher costs of metallic counterparts, increase in demand for low weight tools, and decrease in lead time for part manufacturers. The composite tools are made either from glass fiber or carbon fiber mixed with a suitable matrix (resin) such as epoxy, BMI, and others. The composite tools provide lightweight, dimensionally accurate, and affordable tooling. The increasing penetration of tooling composites in aerospace and other niche applications is the driving force of the global tooling composites market. The growing demand for lighter, larger, and more complex structures from end market applications such as wind energy, aerospace, and marine is anticipated to boost the market.
