Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Bridge Market Size (2022 - 2027)

Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Bridge Market was $61.46 million in 2021 & is expected to be around $83.72 million in 2026 with a current CAGR of 8.47%.

Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Bridge Market Drivers & Restraints:

Technological advancements have led to an increase in the use of FRP materials in the construction industry, automobile industry & aerospace industry. The excellent properties of Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) materials such as corrosion resistance, lightweight, and high strength are some of the important factors that have led to the rapid growth of the market in recent times. FRP composites are being used in the construction of prefabricated sections. These sections have improved flexural strength, flexibility & workability. They are easy to use & are cost-effective. The stringent environmental policies & lack of technology transfer are some of the factors that are inhibiting the market’s growth.

Recent Developments:

Recently an experimental study was conducted to characterize the dynamic properties of an All – Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) truss bridge. The experiment was conducted on a 25 m long glass-FRP truss footbridge in Italy. Vibration tests were conducted to test the dynamic properties of the truss structure. 

The peak-picking method and stochastic subspace identification approach were used to evaluate modal parameter identification. Recently Department of Roads and Bridges, Rzeszow University of Technology, Rzeszow, Poland conducted a test to evaluate the stiffness & strength of a novel Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP) sandwich panel for bridge re-decking.

The test was conducted to test the stiffness & strength of the bridge panel so that they can be used for re-decking bridges that are in poor conditions. The results showed that the panels had appropriate stiffness and load-carrying capacity which is quite similar to the performance characteristics of other FRP bridge decks. A study was done to optimize prestressed fibre-reinforced polymer shells for composite bridge decks. 

The finite element method was used to study geometric parameters including cross-section shape, arch radius, and a number of arches. The stress monitored during loading cycles indicated a superior integrated behaviour of the FRP shell and prestressed FRP laminates. Furthermore, the load-displacement relationship of the prestressed composite bridge deck showed very high loading capacity and small deflection at the serviceability limit state.
