How much do long fiber composites cost, relative to other reinforced materials?

Relative to short fiber materials long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) composites are slightly more expensive, but yield price-to-performance advantages that make them attractive for end-use applications that need an engineered material solution. Due to the efficiencies of the injection molding manufacturing process LFT composites result in a lower per piece cost when replacing metal and provide a significant reduction in weight.
