Global Aerospace Plastics Market Overview

Aerospace Plastics Market Size was valued at USD 19.28 billion in 2022. The Aerospace Plastics industry is projected to grow from USD 20.84 Billion in 2023 to USD 37.98 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.79% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030).

The highly designed polymers used in a variety of aircraft parts and components are known as aerospace grade plastics. The aerospace sector uses a variety of plastic kinds. Some of these include acrylics, polyvinyl chloride, polycarbonates, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) (PVC). The requirement for a material that can withstand extremely high temperatures while being lightweight is one of the biggest problems the aerospace industry is now facing. Aerospace polymers are created to effectively handle these difficulties. High temperature resistance, high pressure withstand capacity, excellent resistance to vibration, turbulence, and abrasion, better transparency for aircraft roof and canopy, and excellent electrical insulating properties are some of the significant physical characteristics displayed by aircraft plastics. The aerostructure, fuselage parts, and other interior components all make extensive use polymers in aerospace application. Commercial, military, and rotary aircraft are the primary end consumers of aerospace polymers.Aerospace Plastics Market OverviewAerospace Plastics Market Trends

Rising Demand for Commercial and Military Aircraft

The rising demand for both commercial and military aircrafts worldwide is one of the main reasons promoting growth of the aerospace plastics market. The need for various plastics is anticipated to increase as the market for aerospace core materials is predicted to reach approximately 40 billion USD at a CAGR of 9% by 2023. Additionally, the worldwide aerospace plastics market is anticipated to rise as a result of the rising need for lightweight materials in contemporary aircrafts and other aviation applications. The leading military powers—the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, and India—invest a size able portion of their GDP in their defence industries. This is expected to increase demand for aerospace polymers, which are used to make the core or fuselage of military aircraft. China, India, South Korea, Malaysia, South Africa, Brazil, and other growing economies are concentrating on their transportation sectors by investing in air travel. The next years are anticipated to see an even greater growth in aircraft manufacturing as a result.
