Market Growth

ACMA is guided by the needs, interests, concerns and aspirations of our members. It is dedicated to the core principle that the more effectively we work together, the stronger our industry will become.

ACMA promotes the expanded use and understanding of composites through a dynamic, multi-year plan for market development in the U.S. and around the world.

The mission of the Composites Growth Initiative (CGI) is to promote and expand the use and understanding of composite materials. You can contribute your specific expertise to this effort by joining one of the CGI Committees.

ACMA is a supporting member of the Department of Energy’s Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI), a $259 million public-private partnership connecting the world's leading manufacturers across the supply chain with universities and national laboratories pioneering advanced composites technology development and research. The Institute will focus on making advanced composites less expensive and less energy-intensive to manufacture, while also making the composites easier to recycle.
