DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 11, 2018--The "Growth Opportunities for Composites in the Global Passenger Rail Market" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The composites in the global passenger rail market is expected to reach an estimated $978 million by 2023 and it is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2018 to 2023.

The global passenger rail market looks good with opportunities in the interior and exterior applications. The major drivers for the growth of this market are the development of high-speed trains, mono and metro rails, as well as the increasing demand for lightweight materials with superior mechanical performance, aesthetics, and fire safety.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of composites in the global passenger rail industry, include the development of green technology products and high-performance composites for interior and exterior applications. Major Composite Component Manufacturers in the Global Passenger Rail Industry

The researchers forecast that the front end cab is expected to remain the largest application and toilet module will witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

In the rail market, RTM/VARTM, open mold, pultrusion, SCRIPM, and injection molding are some of the major processes utilized to manufacture composite parts. RTM/VARTM is expected to remain the largest process in composites part manufacturing for the rail industry, supported by the low cycle time and ease of manufacturing.

Europe is expected to remain the largest market for composites products in the passenger rail industry, whereas APAC is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period due to the expected increase in high-speed train production and growing of mono and metro rail network.

Joptek Composites, Sintex Wausaukee Composites, Excel Composites, Miles Fiberglass & Composites, and TPI Composites are among the major molders in the global rail composites market.
