Innovations in Biocomposites - High-Tech Materials TOE

Share this:
Published: 18 Nov 2016

Composites comprising a biological element or derived from bio-based sources, commonly known as biocomposites, have gained considerable interest over the past decade across industries. In commercial biocomposites, reinforcement agents such as plant fibers and regenerated cellulose fibers are commonly used, while the matrices of the composite materials include polymers derived from renewable sources, and even virgin or recycled thermoplastics. The automotive industry has the highest adoption potential for biocomposites followed by marine and construction industries. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Biocomposites, natural fibers, biodegradable, cellulosic materials
