Recent projections made by composite materials manufacturers show that the biggest growth in this market will take place in the Industrial sector.

Composite materials provide unmatched performances when the need is about: stiffness, light weight, low inertia.

In the pursuit of competitive advantage, Aerospace, Racing and Automotive have already moved from metal to composite structures: the search for extreme performance will eventually lead Industry along the same development path
 
In the 80s in Formula 1 McLaren introduced the first composite monocoque, thereby  acquiring a competitive advantage that started a long string of successes (7 championships in 10 years).

The first tennis racket made of composite materials was developed in 1980.
In 1987, just 7 years later, wooden rackets were used at Wimbledon for the last time: in less than a decade, such a big competitive advantage wiped out a century of wooden product tradition.

Would you ever challenge someone on a tennis court today, using a wooden racket?
