Applications such as doors, windows, rebar, cooling towers and utility pools could drive the growth for composites during the forecast period. Even though the market for general construction is down globally, the demand for application such as composite doors is estimated to be very strong as market penetration strengthens versus competitive products.

Some market segments including bridge decks, bathtubs and swimming pools could show relatively slow rates of growth, but not segment is projected to show a five year decline in the period up to 2013.
