1. Composites in India – An Introduction
Composite Sector’s growth story in India
►

►
A combination of two or more materials differing in form or composition on a macroscale.
Composites industry started in India in 1962.
During last three decades, more than 1200 small-scale industries have been established in the
country. More than 98% of them use hand lay-up technique for composite fabrication. Improvements
in volume growth only started in early 2000 as a result of the globalization of the Indian economy.
Current production of composites is 320,000 Tonnes growing at about 10% per annum.
The composites was identified as a potential material for its application in the Indian Railways in
early 80s for many passenger coach components such as louvre & glass shutters, window sill &
frame, trays for battery boxes, roof ceiling, flooring etc. The railways were aiming towards complete
elimination of timber & plywood usage in the coaches. The present consumption of composite
materials has been estimated at about 8,000 tons in Indian Railways with annual growth rate of
20%.
Current offshore structural applications of composites include low-pressure pipe, gratings, handrails,
equipment covers or enclosures and ladders. Because of lightweight, corrosion resistance,
improved life-cycle costs and enhanced safety, composite can capture 50% of this market in the oil
& gas sector in the next 5-6 years.
The use of composites for boat building applications started in early 1970s for replacing wood
because of certain advantages such as corrosion resistance, ease of fabrication, improved
performance and low cost. The marine market for composites stood around 1000 tons per annum as
on 2006 and this is expected to grow at 3000 tons by 2010, with applications in leisure boats,
houseboats, speedboats etc.

Composites in India
►
There is a huge potential for use of composite in Indian automobile
industry especially for catering to the transportation needs of growing
middle class population. There would be a good market for hoods,
cabs, frames, and cargo containers that could be used as part of
these locally built vehicles. The business opportunities for Indian
composites industry also include air intake manifold, composite
fishing trawlers, refrigerated freight containers, pressure vessel for
gas, motor driven carts, storage light houses, boats for Tuna fishing,
thermoformed components for automotive applications, walkways &
piles for building foundation, RCC casting shutters leaf spring, air
intake manifold etc.
