  6. 6. Top 19 Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) Composites Companies 2014: Leaders In Aerospace, Energy, Construction, Marine, Automotive & Sporting Goods 4.15.2 PPG Outlook & News As the global economy starts a more identifiable recovery PPG will benefit as PPG is strategically positioned to meet growing customer needs by being a highly diversified global supplier of Glass fibre. Looking at the near term PPG has a range of composites developments with a combination of innovative products, materials solutions and technical expertise which see PPG very well placed within the industry. PPG are also heavily investing in expanding their current capacity and pushing further into the emerging markets. Sales volumes in glass fibre increased for PPG, which they have put down to higher global demand in various end use markets. In late 2012 PPG finalised the acquisition of several assets belonging to Spraylat Corp, a privately owned industrial coatings company based in Pelham, N.Y. This acquisition expands the capabilities of PPG’s industrial coatings business for both liquid and powder coatings. Most recently PPG’s aerospace division qualified nine coatings systems to SAE International’s Aerospace Material Specification 3095A for airline exterior paint. PPG announced in April 2014 the successful completion of the previously announced sale to Essilor International of its 51 percent ownership interest in its Transitions Optical joint venture and PPG’s wholly-owned sun lens business. Essilor International had held a 49 percent interest in the Transitions Optical joint venture. As previously indicated, the transaction reflects an enterprise value of approximately $3.4 billion, with PPG receiving cash at closing of $1.73 billion pre-tax or approximately $1.5 billion after-tax, subject to certain post-closing adjustments and transaction costs. In 2013, the Transitions Optical joint venture and sun lens business had combined net sales of $874 million.

Top 19 Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) Composites Companies 2014: Leaders In Aerospace, Energy, Construction, Marine, Automotive & Sporting Goods 6.2 Expert – Thomas Wegman, Marketing and External Communication Manager, DSM 6.2.1 What Would You Say are the Key Trends and Developments in the Composites Industry Right Now? materials, because of the positive attributes of composites (light weight, design freedom, durability, strength, ease of manufacturing in large parts). composites industry to professionalise its manufacturing processes and take out cost in the meantime. means that the trend for Cobalt-free and Styrene-free solutions, the use bio-based raw materials, and the development of solutions for Food Contact in line with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) will increase. 6.2.2 In the Recent Past the Majority of Demand for Composites has Come from the Aerospace Industry, More Recently the Energy Sector Composites Demand has Risen and is Set to Overtake Aerospace. Do you Think this Trend Will Continue? This is not correct. The Aerospace segment has been a small (yet high value-added) part of the Composites industry. Building & Construction/ Infrastructure, Industrial, Transportation, Marine and Wind have been the key markets in the last decade. Page 94 In terms of composites I would say that it is China and South East Asia, they have the highest growth figures reported. There is also some growth in Europe. • The number of composites applications continue to grow at the expense of traditional • Production series and quality requirements are increasing, which is pushing the • End-customers and OEMs require composite solutions that are truly sustainable.
