Fibre-based composites are becoming increasingly important in the manufacture of automotive components. These new materials look set to continue their penetration of the automotive sector, and their large-scale use in mass-production cars, trucks and other vehicles is being widely predicted.

A new publication from Textile Media Services,  Automotive Composites: From steel to carbon and from glass to grass, reviews the history and current use of composites in the automotive sector and assesses how far these materials are from being used in mass vehicle production.

Written by Adrian Wilson, this in-depth report with around 200 pages and more than 50 tables provides a sustainable roadmap for the automotive composites industry for the next decade and beyond. It includes detailed analyses of the production and markets for carbon fibres, glass fibres and natural fibres, and profiles of leading suppliers of these input materials.

Published in November 2011, the report features profiles of leading suppliers of carbon fibres, glass fibres and natural fibres, including: Toray Industries, Teijin/Toho Tenax, Mitsubishi Rayon, SGL, Hexcel, Zoltek, Owens Corning, Johns Manville, 3B, PPG and AGY.
