Mon, 06 Jul 2020 Presents "Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) Market Research Report by Type" New Document to its Studies Database

The global sheet molding compound (SMC) market recorded a value of 2 million dollars in 2019. This market has been exhibiting an impressive growth pattern over the last several years. The share of sheet molding compound market is expected to grow at a Common Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.791% between 2019 and 2023. The global SMC market is expected to reach 3 billion dollars by 2023. Sheet molding compounds are light-weight materials that have emerged as an alternative to steel for manufacturing vehicles. Most cars these days need to be light-weight and therefore manufacturers make use of this compound.

Vehicles that are lightweight consume less fuel and thereby are better. This is one of the main reasons why vehicle manufacturers are demanding more sheet molding compounds. These compounds are used for manufacturing hoods, bumpers, truck boxes and fenders of vehicles thereby ensuring that vehicles are lightweight.

Sheet molding compounds are in high demand because of their properties of high strength, heat stability, corrosion resistance etc. These compounds can be used in fluctuating temperature environments and are being used in many industries successfully. Sheet molding compounds find use in production of electrical enclosures, lighting, walls and sinks.
