Expert Opinion 6.1 Expert – Phillipe Bekaert, Marketing and Communications Manager for Engineered Products, Europe – Johns Manville 6.1.1 What are the Key Trends and Developments in the Composites Industry? The key trends I would say are a focus towards lightweight, is an important driver, this is especially true in the automotive/transportation segment. There is also a driver towards lightweight in Wind energy and also an importance on materials with higher durability and strength. There are a number of composite materials competing in the market but those are the main drivers currently. 6.1.2 In the Past the Aerospace Industry was one of the Biggest Composites Markets and More Recently the Energy Composites Market has Been Performing Well. Would you say there are no Other Markets That Will Drive the Composites Market Forward in the Future? Aerospace is a very important industry for the carbon composites segment not as much for the glass composites segment. There will be an increased focus towards carbon composites. If you look at the automotive segment it’s more geared towards structural applications, for example the BMW i3 being completely driven towards carbon composites, this is a prime example that lightweight vehicles will play an important role in the market. 6.1.3 What Would you say are the Main Advantages of Glass Fibre Over Carbon Fibre in the Wind Power Market? Is it Mainly a Cost Issue? In terms of cost it is more advantageous to use glass fibre in wind energy. If wind energy were to accept the very high price premium of carbon fibre, it would be the material of choice but if you were to have a balanced approach glass fibre has the better price/performance ratio.
