Composites Testing Market to Witness Increased R&D Investment in Future- Exclusive Report by MarketsandMarkets™


Composites testing plays a vital role across the composites supply chain and composite product life cycle. Composites used in various applications have to comply with a range of standards with regard to safety, quality, process control, regulatory compliance and performance. Resin manufacturers, additive suppliers, fiber manufacturers or end-users have to overcome these challenging standards which ultimately offer a significant commercial advantage in terms of quality. The global composites testing market is projected to reach USD 3.06 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.95%, from 2016 to 2026.
