Manufacturing process: Compression molding comprises a major share in the NFCs market
Compression molding is the most widely used manufacturing process of NFCs. Automotive and construction industries
are the key users of compression molded NFCs due to their benefits, such as cost effectiveness, high reproducibility,
low cycle time, homogenous distribution of long fibers in fleece, lesser wastage of raw material and lower tooling costs.
Heavy and intricate complex parts with good surface finish can be made with the help of compression molding, which
make it suitable in the construction industry. In the automotive industry, it is used to produce interior parts of automobiles
with higher strength and stiffness.
Construction & Automotive industry is at the forefront and driving the NFCs market
The demand for NFCs in the construction industry for outdoor deck floors, railings, fences, landscaping timbers, park
benches, window and door frames, and indoor furniture has grown remarkably on the global platform. This is due to
their superior strength-to weight ratio, recyclability, and low cost. Further, NFCs are becoming popular and essential
for making automotive components such as seatbacks, parcel shelves, boot linens, front and rear door linens, truck
linens, and door-trim panels due to their lightweight and increased fuel efficiency.
North America accounts for a major market share of NFCs market
The North America region accounts for the largest market of NFCs, globally, due to the high demand from the
construction industry and regulatory norms requiring the use of ecofriendly materials. Along with the existing
capacities, several NFCs manufacturers, are expanding their production capacities. According to the Department
of Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) report, almost 1.5 million vehicles included applications for natural fibers
such as kenaf, jute, flax, hemp and sisal in combination with thermoplastic polymers such as polypropylene and
polyester. The demand for NFCs in North America is projected to continuously increase in the near future on account
of significant performance at lower prices of NFCs in automotive and construction applications driven by regulatory
standards recommending the use of lightweight and recyclable materials.
Some of the key global players prevailing in the NFCs market are Trex Company, Inc., Advanced Engineering recycling
technologies, Inc. (AERT), Fiberon LLC (U.S.), UPM Biocomposites (Finland), FlexForm Technologies (U.S.), among
others. These players have adopted various organic and inorganic developmental strategies in the past five years. For
instance, FlexForm Technologies formed FlexForm Korea Ltd. for the acquisition and operation of factories and
production lines in Jeonju City and Cheonan, South Korea.
This report covers the market of NFCs and forecasts the market size till 2021. The report includes the market
