Post-release:

In the course of a study conducted by NeoAnalytics on the topic "The Russian composite materials market: results of 2023, forecast until 2027", it turned out that by the end of 2023, the volume of the Russian composite market is more than 110 billion rubles, annual growth rates are estimated at around 10-15%. It should be noted that over the period 2017-2023, the market volume has more than doubled. For comparison, in 2017, the market volume was half that.

In Russia, glass fiber-based composite materials are the most applicable; their share in the market structure is more than 90%. In turn, the volume of the fiberglass market by the end of 2023 amounted to about 240 thousand tons, and increased by 10.2% compared to the same period last year.

Composite materials are becoming increasingly important in aviation, construction, energy and other industrial sectors as the main structural and functional materials.
