Global composite cylinders market stood at $ 601 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $ 921 million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of over 7% during 2019-2024, owing to increasing demand for explosion proof, non-corrosive and lightweight LPG cylinders. Composite cylinder is a high-pressure vessel that is made of a composite-polymer material and placed in a plastic body. The technology of manufacturing a modern composite cylinder is a very complex and high-tech process, thus its cost is much higher than the cost of a metal analogue. Increasing consumption of LPG in the developing countries is expected to boost the demand for composite LPG cylinders during the forecast period. Moreover, government push towards the usage of composite cylinders is also anticipated to positively impact growth of composite cylinders market, globally.

In terms of outer casing material, global composite cylinders market has been categorized into carbon fibers, glass fibers, high density polyethylene and others. Among the outer casing materials, high density polyethylene category accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to remain the largest category in coming years as well. Growth of the high density polyethylene category can be majorly attributed to its lightweight characteristics and higher performance benefits.

Asia-Pacific dominated global composite cylinders market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its market dominance during forecast period, on account of large base of composite cylinder manufacturing industry in the region. Moreover, North America is also anticipated to hold a substantial share in global composite cylinders market, owing to high per capita consumption of goods.
