Recently a study was done on the impact response of Pennisetum purpureum/glass-reinforced epoxy (PGRE) hybrid composites when exposed to moisture & high temperatures. IMATEK IM10 drop weight impact tester was used to study the impact response of hybrid composites. The composites were subjected to humidity for several hours & at various temperatures. The results showed that untreated PGRE composites yielded the maximum peak loads impact responses at different energy levels. An increase in temperature reduced the stiffness of composites substantially. The increasing absorbed energy resulted in peak deflection causing severe damage to the composite.
A study was conducted to analyze the mechanical & physical properties of sisal & hybrid sisal fiber-reinforced polymer composites. Some natural fibers such as sisal, banana, jute, kenaf, & oil palm are available in abundance & are found to possess superior mechanical properties. Due to high tensile strength modulus & impact strength sisal is one of the most promising fiber reinforcement for polymer composites. Sisal based thermoset & thermoplastic composites are found to be very useful in various industries such as automobile, marine & aircraft structures.
Recently research was conducted on design optimization & energy absorption mechanics of CFRP/ Aluminium hybrid structures when loaded transversally. It was found that the energy absorption of the hybrid tube was affected mainly by ply thickness whereas there was a marginal effect due to the ply angle. The hybrid resulted in a 42.96% increase in specific energy absorption (SEA) & the mean crushing force was improved by 37.75%.
The stringent policies regarding environment has made it difficult for plastics and opened doors for the growth of composites market around the world. Ease of handling non-utilized plastic material is also a driving factor. PE-base composites are the highest contributor in adding to the overall growth of the worldwide hybrid composites industry.
The usage of composites in aerospace, wind energy turbines is also growing, and these options are often come cheap as compared to their counterparts that help in the growth of the industry. The demand for light-weight material is also increasing in different parts of the world that allows growth opportunities for hybrid composites market. Environment concerns have also raised the production of carbon-based composites.
Thermoset-resins exhibits immaculate strength and crack resistance. These resins are viable for use in automotive & transportation and marine applications that are some of the largest end-use industries demanding materials that possess high strength, lightweight, and improved performance. Thermoset resin account for the significant share of the global hybrid composite because of their uses in several end-use verticals. Therefore, it is evident that with the increasing end-user applications, the market for hybrid composites is supposed to skyrocket in the foreseen period.
Hybrid composites market is facing stiff competition across the planet. These competitors are proving to be a very feasible substitute for these composites and thus hinder the growth of the former. Rising energy prices is another barrier thwarting the expansion of this industry. This is because of the low melting property affiliated with the hybrid composites. The uneven distribution of linking agents is also considered as a drawback associated with the hybrid composites and brings down the growth opportunities.
Increased growth in industries such as automotive that have a high demand for Hybrid composites has presented the market a glowing opportunity to register high growth rates in the coming years. For instance, in the European region, the growth of aerospace and wind power sector has triggered high demand for lightweight material and thus provides a lot of opportunities for the hybrid composite manufacturers to come up with improved materials for these end use industries.
Some of the hybrid composites are non-recyclable, as a result their usage gets very limited and many industries find it unsuitable for their needs. The government norms adhering to the usage of recyclable products makes it a challenge for the global hybrid composites market. On top of that, epoxy resins are used in many of these composites which in itself is costly and thus finding the cost-effective balance, which is acting as a serious threat to the development of this industry in the following years.
