The Composites Alliance and University of Rhode Island academics have completed an economic impact study on the composites sector in Rhode Island, USA.

This is the first study to define both the makeup of the firms in this sector and to measure the sector's economic impact, its writers says.

The resultant data could help promote Rhode Island's expertise and capabilities, and provides data that will be used to educate policymakers about the industry in the sector.
