The future of the global short fiber thermoplastic market looks promising with opportunities in the transportation, consumer goods, and electrical and electronics end use industries. The global short fiber thermoplastic market is declined in 2020 due to the global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, the market will witness recovery in the year 2021, and it is expected to reach an estimated $16.8 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2026. The major drivers for growth in this market are increasing demand for light weight materials in different application markets where complex parts are designed.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of high temperature resistance grades of short fiber thermoplastic with PA6 to replace high cost resin systems like PA46 and PA12.

A total of 123 figures / charts and 105 tables are provided in this 175-page report to help in your business decisions.
