Belgium has a rich history in innovation across various industries and actively fosters the culture of research & development. The country invests in cutting-edge technologies and collaborative projects to advance composite materials and manufacturing processes. The Belgian composites sector is particularly known for its contributions to the aerospace industry for aircraft and space applications and has a growing presence in the automotive, transportation & renewable energy markets. It is increasingly focusing on sustainable solutions with the development of composites made from recycled materials, as well as the use of environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.
