The hybrid fabrics market is expected to reach $418 million by 2027, representing a 9 percent CAGR (compound annual growth rate) growth from 2020 to 2027, according to a new study by Allied Market Research. Growth is primarily driven by the increasing success of lightweight fabrics, a surge in applications in the aircraft and automotive industries, and the multiplication of low emission norms all over the world. Meanwhile, market growth is curtailed by the high cost of carbon/aramid and the availability of low cost alternatives, said experts. By fiber type, the glass/carbon segment currently represents the largest market share (nearly two-fifths in 2019), and is estimated to maintain its lead status in the 2020-2027 period. The carbon/UHMWPE segment is expected to register the highest growth and a CAGR evolution of 11.4 percent from 2020 to 2027. By region, the Asia-Pacific is estimated to manifest the highest growth, with a CAGR increase of 11.6 percent, in the forecast period. Europe currently holds the largest share of the global hybrid fabric market, followed by North America.
