Aerospace Composites Market Overview

Aerospace Composites Market Is Projected To Be Worth USD 64.51 Billion By 2028, Registering A CAGR Of 13.77% by 2021-2028

In the aircraft industry, composite materials are widely used for different purposes. The composites materials have more advantages like they do not merge completely with each other well as they can sustain their identities properly. On the contrary, hybrid materials exist for aerospace components with better structural properties.

Usually, the aerospace industry consists of various composite materials such as carbon fibre, fibreglass, and fibre-reinforced matrix system. Even aerospace composites are widely used in different aircraft frames like wings, fuselage, and aircraft interiors. They can sustain extreme operating conditions like impact loads, high temperature, shocks, and high stress. 

Apart from that, the intended audiences like distributor & supplier companies, consultants and investment bankers, end-users, independent regulatory authorities, or government associated with Aerospace Composites Market play a necessary role in propelling the global market growth during the assessment period. 

Furthermore, the European regional market is driving the aviation industry due to the increasing competition from high-speed trains and other travel modes. Additionally, the Aerospace Composites Market of Europe has increased its growth because of evolving global aircraft leaders in the Asia Pacific and sudden growth in air passenger traffic in the region.

Apart from that, the Middle East & African market is predicted to register significant growth during the research period due to the rising number of maintenance, operational activities, and repair of aircraft and the presence of aircraft competitors in the region. Also, it is projected that the high growth rates can be witnessed in Russia and Central Europe during the review period. 

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The demand for composites in the aerospace industry has negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, the supply chain has been disrupted, leading to the non-arrival of raw materials. This has affected the composites' financial flow as many investors were not ready to invest in the production. Also, the lack of workforce and transportation and the travel restriction worldwide have reduced air travel significantly. This has led to reducing new aircraft deliveries, which has hit hard to the aerospace industry. In addition, it has reduced the demand for composite materials.

For instance, the market players have adopted new strategies and safety measures to propel the Aerospace Composites Market Growth during the forecast period. Further, it has been witnessed that the market share is significantly growing in the present context. 

Market Dynamics

Key Market Drivers

The demand for composite materials has increased from the defense and aerospace industry, especially when there is no interruption in the supply chain and no travel restrictions for the covid-19 pandemic. This has driven the high Aerospace Composites Market Size during the forecast period. 

In Hampton, Virginia, NASA's Langley Research Center is developing Super lightweight Aerospace Composites (SAC) project, which is proposed to enable significant mass savings on space structures. The engineers predicted that the high-strength yarn could lead to 25% mass savings by replacing carbon fibre-reinforced polymers. This kind of initiative is expected to enhance the Aerospace Composites Market Trends in the upcoming years. 

Market opportunities

In carbon fibre composites, the main raw materials included are carbon fibres and polymeric resins. The cost of carbon fibres is significantly reduced due to the development of high-yield precursors and the low cost of making aerospace-grade carbon fibres. Hence, the reduction in the cost of carbon fibres is projected to reduce the carbon fibre aerospace composites cost, bringing more opportunities for the global Aerospace Composites Market’s key players. 

Moreover, the investments in R&D of advanced composite materials are increasing, which is bringing lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers and key players. 

Market Restraints

The decreasing number of commercial aircraft deliveries may hinder the Aerospace Composites Market Size

 during the forecast period.

In addition, the high cost of production and maintenance and stringent rules of the government may also hamper the global market.

Market challenges 

The liquidity crunch because of the slowdown in the aerospace industry can be one of the biggest challenges for the Aerospace Composites Market during the research period. 

Moreover, the fluctuation in the price cost can also bring major challenges for the Aerospace Composites Market.
