Frost & Sullivan: Innovations inFrost & Sullivan: Innovations in Lightweight Composites Gather Momentum, Paving Way for use in Emerging Applications PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Feb. 4, 2014 -- Low-cost fabrication technologies with decreased cycle times will be crucial for wide-scale technology acceptance Developments in lightweight composites are rapidly gathering pace as a collaborative effort from stakeholders across the value chain opens up immense market opportunities. Still, further material and manufacturing advancements – including exploiting the high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent durability properties of lightweight composites – will be necessary to offset the many challenges posed by lightweight structures. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.technicalinsights.frost.com), Innovations in Lightweight Composites, finds that the trend towards large lightweight structures in several industries, including wind, aerospace, construction and mass transit, bodes well for the lightweight composites market. Driven by stringent legislations and customer concerns on reducing fuel consumption, the transportation industry, in particular, placed emphasis on weight reduction.
