The aerospace composites market consists of sales of aerospace composites by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) which are used to enhance the performance of commercial and military aircraft. Aerospace composites have superior physical properties and exceptional strength and stiffness-to-density ratios. Composites can be manufactured in different shapes which reduce corrosion resistance and material wastage.
The main types of aerospace composites include carbon fiber composites, ceramic fiber composites, glass fiber composites, and others. Carbon composites are a broad class of materials in which carbon structures are spread throughout a material. They offer strength and stiffness while keeping them relatively lightweight. Ceramic composites offer excellent temperature stability, damage-tolerant fracture behavior, low density, good corrosion, high hardness and wear resistance. Glass fiber composites offer flexibility, high strength stiffness, and durability. Aerospace composites are mainly used in commercial aircraft, business and general aviation, civil helicopter, military aircraft, and others. Two major types of applications of aerospace composites are interior and exterior. Aerospace composites are manufactured through AFP/ATL, lay-up process, resin transfer moulding process, filament winding process, and other processes. Resins used for aerospace composites include benzoxazine, cyanate ester, bismalimide, ceramic and metal matrix, thermosetting resins, polyester, and others.
North America was the largest region in the aerospace composites market in 2021. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The increasing demand for high strength and lightweight composite materials is expected to drive the aerospace composites market. Energy efficiency can be increased and fuel consumption can be reduced by using lightweight materials and thereby reducing the mass of aircraft, as a lower mass requires less lift force and thrust during flight. Lightweight design helps in reducing the carbon footprint, higher structural strength and stiffness, flight performance improvements such as better acceleration, and better safety performance. For instance, according to Tech Briefs, in 2019, when Boeing 787 used 20% weight savings, it was able to achieve a considerable 10 to 12% improvement in fuel efficiency. The extensive use of lightweight materials is helpful and can be used for increasing energy efficiency. Therefore, increasing use of lightweight materials positively impacts the aerospace composites market growth.
Companies in the aerospace composites market are focusing on technological advancement to accelerate and develop composite material and process technologies for the next generation of energy efficient aircraft and future mobility. Airlines are trying to replace outdated aircraft with technologically advanced and modern airplanes. These new aircrafts are equipped with increased payload capacities and cost-efficiency. As a result of this, there is widespread adoption of aerospace composites across the globe. For example, in March 2021, GKN Aerospace, a UK-based company involved in automotive and aerospace components business, launched a consortium called ASCEND (aerospace and automotive supply chain enabled development). With this launch, the UK has become a technology leader in future lightweight structures. It also helps to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption in the aerospace industry.
In September 2020, private investment firm Architect Equity acquired the Aerospace Composites Division of AAR Corp., a company engaged in providing aerospace and defense aftermarket solutions, for an undisclosed amount. Through this acquisition, Architect is expected to design and manufacture complex aerospace products with AAR Corp, and pursue new opportunities in the composites manufacturing space. The aerospace composites division will do business as Aeromatrix Composites. Aeromatrix is a US-based company that designs, fabricates, and assembles composite products and solutions for customers in the commercial aerospace and defense industries.
