Clear upward trend in Composites Index

Auch im Automobilbau kommen immer häufiger leichte Materialsysteme zum Einsatz, die über einzelne Werkstoffgruppen hinausgehen. For the eighth time Composites Germany has identified up-to-date KPIs for the fibre-reinforced plastics market. As before, the survey covered all the member companies of the four biggest umbrella organisations of Composites Germany: AVK, CCeV, CFK-Valley and the VDMA Working Group on Hybrid Lightweight Construction Technologies. Having received over 130 responses, the survey again represents a good cross-section of the entire composites industry.
As on previous occasions, the questions were left unchanged in order to ensure a smooth comparison with previous surveys, and the focus was largely on the qualitative data of general market developments as well as the specific situations in each composites segment.
