To compete in the evolving manufacturing market, companies need to adapt or diversify their production to accommodate ever stricter financial, regulatory and environmental constraints. Climate change challenges are leading our society to modify its behavior and favor sustainable and innovative products and equipment. Using composite materials is one way to meet this challenge and represents a promising business opportunity.
The advantages of replacing traditional materials with composites include:
- Better performance
- Lighter weight
- Lower energy consumption
- Fewer greenhouse gas emissions
The potential scope of application is large and includes aerospace, automotive, energy, construction and shipbuilding among many industries in which the use of composites is growing continuously.
