The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) this week released its 2007 Composites Industry Report.
The report, which is available to ACMA members, provides the latest statistics on the U.S. composites industry, including end market uses.
The 2007 Composites Industry Report highlights the total impact of composites production and also provides data on fibreglass thermoset composites shipments by year, and market and end-use applications. Additionally, it highlights sales of composites for markets such as construction, marine, and transportation and the use of composites in windmill blades and sports equipment.
""This report is one of the most important tools for tracking the growth of the composites industry in general and in specific market areas,"" said John Tickle, ACMA president. ""We use the information to help us determine the areas where we should be focusing our efforts as we plan for future growth.""
