Composite Cylinder Market
Composite Cylinder Market

The Composite Cylinder Market was valued at USD 912 million in the year 2022 and is expected to grow at a steady rate of around 4% during the forecast period (2023-2030), owing to the increasing usage of natural gas-powered vehicles. Composite cylinders are composed of helically woven fibers and resin, marking an important shift towards a new generation of technology with sustainable characteristics such as being 100% recyclable and their sturdy nature against UV rays. The transportation industry is increasingly turning to composite cylinders to meet its needs for lightweight, durable, and reliable fuel and gas storage. This demand is driven by a number of factors, including the need for greater efficiency, safety, and cost savings. Furthermore, one of the primary drivers of the demand for composite cylinders in the transportation industry is the need for greater efficiency. This weight savings translates into improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Moreover, another factor driving the demand for composite cylinders in the transportation industry is the need for greater safety. Composite cylinders are much less likely to rupture or explode in the event of an accident. Additionally, composite cylinders are less likely to corrode or become damaged in extreme temperatures, making them a safer option for use in vehicles that may be exposed to extreme temperatures.

The major trend witnessed in the global composite cylinder market is the increasing demand for these cylinders for transportation and storage of liquified petroleum gas (LPG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). Furthermore, a huge chunk of demand for composite cylinders is also coming from the increased adoption of these cylinders in various end-user sectors, including transportation of LNG and CNGs, aerospace and defense, construction and infrastructure development projects, and the healthcare industry. For instance, in March 2022, Time Technoplast announced that it had bagged an order of 7,58,814 units of 10kg capacity cylinders from IOCL (Indian Oil Corporation Limited), which needs to be supplied for the period of 12 months.

Aburi Composites; Amtrol-Alfa; Aygaz; Dragerwerk; EVAS; Faber Industries; Hexagon Composites ASA; SIDPEC; Luxfer Gas Industries; and Sinoma are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst fiber type, the glass fiber composite cylinder category to hold a significant share in the market in 2022.”

Based on fiber type, the market is segmented into glass fiber composites, carbon fiber composites, aramid fiber composites, and others. The glass fiber composite holds a significant share of the market owing to properties that it exhibits such as low density, high strength, and easy processing. Furthermore, glass fiber composite cylinders are widely used in the automotive, aerospace, and construction sectors. Moreover, the surging use of LPG and CNG composite cylinders for their various applications in the automotive industry due to increasing demand for CNG vehicles, and increasing demand for household composite cylinders are driving the demand for glass fiber composite cylinders in the market. Due to this anticipation of rising demand, the companies operational in this segment are also allocating their funds for capacity expansion to cater to this demand.

“APAC to hold a significant share in the market.”

APAC is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. With the increasing industrialization, rapid infrastructure development, and increasing urbanization, the population in the cities is rising. This congestion of population in cities is giving rise to increased mobility demand which in turn is degrading air quality and fueling pollution. Due to factors like this, the demand for natural gas-powered vehicles is gaining traction in emerging economies, and the government also supporting the shift is generating a sustained demand for the same. Furthermore, the use of composite cylinders is also becoming prominent among OEMs due to its numerous benefits including superior strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and eco-efficiency. Furthermore, In the aerospace industry, composite cylinders are being used to create lightweight and durable components for aircraft, such as sandwich structures, cross-arms, and cantilever beams. Additionally, research has been conducted on the use of electro-active shape memory nanocomposites and honeycomb-filled composite structures for aerospace applications. For instance, in April 2023, Emirates Gas, a subsidiary of ENOC Group, announced that it is launching next-generation LPG composite cylinders as a part of the consistent effort to provide its customers with the latest technology in the LPG industry.
