Global Ceramic Matrix Composites Market Overview


The Ceramic Matrix composites Market Size was valued at USD 3.82 Billion in 2023. The Ceramic Matrix composites industry is projected to grow from USD 4.31 Billion in 2024 to USD 10.85 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are ceramic fibers embedded in a ceramic matrix, forming a ceramic fiber-reinforced material. Composite materials comprise at least two parts, i.e., the reinforcement, which provides special mechanical properties such as stiffness or strength, and the matrix material, which holds everything together. CMCs are a particular type of composite material in which both the reinforcement (refractory fibers) and the matrix material are ceramics.

Ceramic Matrix Composites Market Trends




  • INCREASING USE OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES IN THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY.




Ceramic matrix composites are widely used in the aerospace industry to manufacture aircraft components such as gas turbine engines, engine nozzles, tail cones, nose caps, rudders, fins, leading edges, body flaps, panels, and other engine components. The advantages of using CMCs include excellent wear and corrosion resistance in a wide range of environments and temperatures, high strength-to-weight ratio, high strength retention at elevated temperatures, high chemical stability, hardness, and lightweight. Thus, the growth of the aerospace industry is expected to increase the demand for CMCs and drive the growth of the ceramic matrix composites market during the forecast period.

Additionally, Recent studies on ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) have shown that they exhibit outstanding erosion resistance at temperatures up to 2000°C or even higher; however, they cannot resist thermal shocks and damage. To overcome these technological limitations, the C³HARME project aims to combine the superior features of CMCs and UHTCs to develop ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composite (UHTCMCs) with self-healing capabilities. Thus, the development of new products using CMCs with superior properties is expected to offer lucrative opportunities.


Ceramic Matrix Composites Market Segment Insights


Ceramic Matrix composites Product Insights


The Ceramic Matrix composites market segmentation, based on Product, includes Oxide, Silicon Carbide, and Carbon. The oxides product segment led the market and accounted for more than 29.97% share of the revenue in 2021. Improved properties of oxide composites such as no oxidation and high fracturing toughness, and a less expensive production process, are expected to trigger the demand for aerospace, defense, and energy & power applications. The Sic segment is projected to register a CAGR of 12.8% in terms of value during the forecast period. The higher initial cost of SiC ceramic matrix composites is the most prominent growth barrier for the segment. Other costs indulged during usage and transportation, such as cleaning costs and repositioning costs, also restrain the demand growth. Carbon products held a significant revenue share in 2021 due to the large-scale production of carbon fibers to fulfill the increased demand for CF and CFRP products ly. The costs of carbon/carbon ceramic matrix composites are significantly cheaper than silicon carbide/silicon carbide and oxide/oxide ceramic matrix composites.


Ceramic Matrix composites Application Insights


Based on Application, the Ceramic Matrix composites market segmentation includes Aerospace, Defense, Energy & Power, Electrical & Electronics. The aerospace application segment led the market and accounted for more than 36.19% of the revenue share in 2021. Factors such as the rising preference of consumers for manufacturing noses, rudder, fins, leading edges, body flaps, hot structures, tiles, and panels for aircraft are anticipated to expand the demand in the aerospace segment during the forecast period. Their excellent impact strength coupled with high hardness makes these composites suitable for manufacturing bullet-proof armor and insulation in small arms weapons platforms. Ceramic materials are mostly transparent to certain types of energy, and light. As a result, they are widely used for infrared domes, sensor protection, and multi-spectral windows.
