Pune, June 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global aerospace composites industry size is projected to reach USD 29.69 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.27% during the forecast period. Heavy reliance on carbon fiber composites for manufacturing aircraft components will be the key growth driver for this market, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Aerospace Composites Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Fiber Type (Carbon, Glass, Aramid, and Others), By Aircraft (Commercial Aircrafts, Military Fixed Wings, Business Aircrafts & General Aviation, Jet Engines, Helicopter and others), and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026”. Carbon fiber composites replaced aluminium as the primary material for making airplanes a few decades ago as aluminium was proving economically infeasible for aircraft manufacturers. The switch to carbon fiber was based on the material’s lightweight properties as well as high durability and tensile strength.

Moreover, carbon fiber, unlike other metals, is resistant to corrosion and fatigue and therefore, reduces maintenance costs of aircrafts. For example, Boeing utilizes carbon fiber composites in making all parts of its iconic 787 Dreamliner to keep it lightweight and sturdy. Thus, emergence of carbon fiber has augured well for the market for aerospace composites.

Market Restraint

Issues Surrounding Flammability of Composites to Inhibit Market Growth

The aerospace composites market growth is likely to be impeded owing to the grave risks associated with the flammability of certain composite materials used in aircraft manufacturing such as resin. For instance, in 2013, the stationary Ethiopian Airlines 787 at London’s Heathrow airport caught fire when a short circuit was triggered in one of the lithium batteries that were powering an emergency beacon on the plane. Investigation revealed that the composite material resin, which is part of airline fuselage, fed the circuit. As a result, the US Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) tightened its norms for certifying flammability of composite materials used in aircraft to ensure safety of passengers. Tough regulations, therefore, may slow down the growth of this market.
