Composites are rapidly becoming a mainstream technology and there can be little doubt as to the importance of the industry in the years to come, the demand is being led by key sectors, such as Aerospace, Oil and Gas and Wind Energy.

As the demand for Composite applications increases in the coming years, understanding the market drivers and opportunities will prove vital.

The growth rate of the Global Composites Industry out performed Global GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2010 by 10% and is forecasted to continue with this trend for the next five years. The BRIC nations- Brazil, Russia, India and China will continue to perform well despite a global recession.

The fast growing demand for Composite Materials globally is the result of the vast possibilities presented by the unique properties of advanced Composites in more durable, lightweight and higher-performance products in Aerospace, Wind Energy, Chemical, Marine, Construction, Transportation, and other application sectors. This has delivered savings in running costs and carbon emissions, increasing resource efficiency and driving the shift to a low carbon economy.

The ability to develop unique combinations of materials and processes to meet specific performance criteria, has led to continuous product development which requires a skilled workforce from basic processing to advanced sector specific competencies.

Established in 2010, Composites Training Academy’s purpose is to convert the 'hands-on' knowledge and expertise of accomplished professionals in the Composites Industry into economic value. This is being achieved by raising the awareness of commercial opportunities in the rapidly expanding Composites Market, and by developing skills as an essential ingredient and building block for individuals and organizations to become both locally, and globally competitive, in the polymer composites sector. Laying a foundation for skills development will ensure a workforce that produces high-value products at consistent standards.

CTA has developed key relationships within local and international companies to further enhance our ability to deliver world class training programs, knowledge transfer projects, global secondment opportunities and technology development projects.
CTA’s mission is to stimulate and support sustainable growth in the African Composites Industry.
