FRP tanks have an important application in the oil and gas industry. The downstream industry needs underground FRP storage tanks. According to the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials analysis, it has been found that approximately 7,500 underground storage tanks (USTs) are sold in North America each year. ZCL Composites Inc. management has found that steel tanks represent less than 15% of new installations, but still represent 40-50% of the tank base currently installed / in service. But due to the pandemic of the year 2020, FRP vessels have shrunk due to a partial and complete lockdown in major countries, which has disrupted the market‘s supply chain. However, demand for FRP vessels would show a recovery with the resumption of oil and gas, automotive and transportation applications and an increased focus of countries on clean fuels. The global FRP vessel market size is expected to grow from USD 3.3 billion in 2020 to USD 4.7 billion by 2025, projecting a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period between 2020 and 2025.

This growing consumption is attributed to strong industrial growth in countries like China, Japan and South Korea. China has become the largest consumer of FRP vessels in the automotive sector and is expected to further strengthen its position. The Chinese government’s focus on reducing air pollution by encouraging the use of natural gas vehicles is driving the growth of the FRP vessel market.

This has resulted in declining vehicle sales, disrupted financial flows and increasing absenteeism among production line workers. These factors have affected the demand for alternative FRP fuel tanks. Demand is expected to rebound with the resumption of sales of natural gas and fuel cell vehicles by 2021.
