This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Composite Repair Market is accounted for $19.62 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $54.80 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 15.8% during the forecast period. A system engineering technique called composite repair makes use of composite materials to fix thin-skin components with damage and stop the cracks from spreading. Pipelines, heat exchangers, hoses, process piping, storage tanks, and other pressure vessels can all be temporarily repaired using composite repair. As an alternative to conventional maintenance procedures, composite repair is used. It is done without completely shutting down the machinery or process.

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers 2018 Report Card, The U.S. requires USD 3.3 trillion to repair the country's infrastructure by 2020.

Market Dynamics:


Rising demand from aerospace

The primary factor driving the market growth rate is an increase in the use of composite repairs for aerospace applications. Rising industrialization and an increase in aramid fiber consumption by the defense industry will both have a direct and advantageous impact on the market's growth rate. Growth and expansion of different end-user segments, along with increased public awareness of the advantages of cost savings associated with composite structure repair, will further pave the way for the market's expansion. Moreover, the commercialization of cannabis products will increase along with the manufacturing of hemp, which will accelerate market growth.


Lack of skilled labours

Lack of appropriate and accepted training standards is a major issue in a number of nations. There will be a high demand for composite repair specialists because end-use industries' use of composites will be aging. The supply or availability of qualified personnel is insufficient given the rising demands. As a result, the quality and accessibility of inspection and repair may be impacted as a result of a long-term skill shortage.


Launch of new wind energy projects

The demand for composite repair processes in the energy generation sector will grow during the forecast period along with the rise in wind energy projects, because of its low weight, high strength, and design flexibility. And the composite materials are primarily used in wind turbine blades and nacelles. The most crucial components of wind turbines, the blades, require maintenance two to three times annually. With the growing shift toward sustainable energy sources for electricity, countries have begun implementing numerous wind energy projects which rapidly increases the growth for the market expansion.


Availability of substitutes

The development of the composite repair industry may be hampered by alternatives to traditional composite repairs, such as the use of self-healing composite. Major industrial sectors like automotive and aerospace would be able to lower their manual repair costs if there were more affordable alternatives available, like self-healing composites. This might have a negative effect on how often vacuum infusion and scarf repair are used in these important sectors, which would have a negative effect on the market growth of the composite repairs industry and reduce the size of the composite repairs market.

Covid-19 Impact

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the two biggest producers of composites, China and India, demand has been negatively impacted. To keep floor workers, engineers, and other employees at a social distance from one another, composite production had been stopped or reduced. Additionally, the global pandemic illness COVID-19 has forced the production of wind turbine blades, aircraft, and automobiles to cease operations, which has decreased demand for composite materials. As a result, there was no production and no repairs, and the market was completely shut down, which hindered the composite repair industry during this period.

The aerospace and defense segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

During the forecast period, the aerospace and defense segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share. Demand for composite materials is rising quickly, particularly in the aerospace sector. Commercial transport aircraft make extensive use of composite materials because the lighter airframe allows for better fuel economy and lower operating costs. Both the aerospace and defense industries have seen an increase in the use of aramid fiber. The growth in consumption of these fibers is anticipated to continue at a significant rate due to rising investments in the defense industry.

The vacuum infusion segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The vacuum infusion segment is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the prediction period. Vacuum infusion has some advantages over other methods, such as vacuum bag sealing, including a better fiber-to-resin ratio, less waste production, and very consistent rein usage. High-level customization uses precision-based composite components, which are made possible by vacuum infusion. This will have a favorable effect on the segment's growth over the course of the forecast period.

Region with largest share:

Due to the large installed wind energy capacities in China, Japan, India, and Australia, the Asia-Pacific region is predicted to hold the largest market share and take the lead during the forecast period. India has improved its defense manufacturing, and the nation is now exporting more military hardware, including Cheetah helicopters, to nations like Afghanistan, Indonesia, Nepal, Vietnam, South Korea, Myanmar, Israel, Russia, etc. Additionally, the ISRO is developing spacecraft quickly. Such aspects are likely to drive the Asia-Pacific composite repair market.

Region with highest CAGR:

The widespread use of composite materials in wind turbine blades and nacelles, which benefit from their low weight, high strength, and design flexibility, the North American market is anticipated to experience significant growth over the course of the forecast period. Boeing, a US aircraft manufacturer, reported in its annual reports that it delivered 340 aircraft in 2021, a 116% increase from the 157 delivered in 2020. Additionally, rapidly expanding end-use industries have had a significant impact on the rising demand for composite repairs in the North American nations of the US, Canada, and Mexico, which has led to a positive growth of the composite repair industry in the region.
