The report titled "Global Composites Market 2009-2014" presents a completelyrevamped and updated in depth review of the industry which presently finds itself caught in the middle of the global economic crisis. There were dramatic changesin the composites market in 2008 and this report gives valuable insights as to theextent of the decline in major market segments and its ramification in the entiresupply chain of the composites industry.It comprehensively details the supply side, demand side as well as themanufacturing sectors undergoing the downturn as well as the sectors withstrongest near term upside and potential. The regional snapshots, in addition tothe individual market segment analysis, proves useful to material suppliers, partfabricators, OEMs and private equity players to plan their production andinvestments for 2009 and in near future.Construction, automotive and marine were market segments that were badly hitin 2008 due to recession in industrialized nations and Lucintel is of the view thatthe decline in several market segments will continue in 2009. Compositesshipment in wind energy, and pipe and tank continued to grow at a healthy rateand, according to Lucintel estimates, holds strong promise, albeit at lower rates,during 2009-2014.
