A new study entitled "Profit Opportunities in Long Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites -- North America and Europe”, due to be published during the fourth quarter of 2001, will provide subscribers with a strategic understanding of one of the fastest growing segments of the plastics composite market in North America and Europe.
Long glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic (LFRT) composites, introduced almost two decades ago, have just begun to enjoy extraordinary growth. What is driving this growth? What are the principal markets and applications vulnerable to penetration by LFRT composites? Which offer the best case for profitable growth and what are the projected growth rates? What are the newest LFRT technologies and how will they impact market acceptance? All of these questions, and more, will be addressed in this new study from BRG.
Primary deliverables of this study are:
* An overview of the long fiber reinforced thermoplastic market in Western Europe and North America
* An assessment of the apparent strategies of the current major participants in the LFRT value chain.
* Summary analysis of threats, opportunities and a forecast of the future shape of the LFRT composite market with a three and five year time horizon.
* The current status of competing technologies with a forecast of future viability.
* Description of existing and emerging LFRT applications by market area.
* Growth patterns and three year forecasts.
* Supplier profiles of the major NA and European LFRT suppliers.
* Consumption in 2000 by region, major market segment, resin matrix.
