Selbyville, Delaware, Sept. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The aerospace composites market size is anticipated to record a valuation of USD 16 billion by 2027, according to the most recent study by Global Market Insights Inc. There has been a significant rise in space exploration activities as well as expansion of the aviation sector in recent years, worldwide. These factors have accelerated manufacturing across the aerospace sector, which has created a significant demand for aerospace composite materials that can effectively reduce aircraft weight and enhance fuel-efficiency. The elevating demand for these products is strengthening the business space of market.

Amid the increasing application of composites in aerospace, leading manufacturers are coming up with innovative offerings to effectively meet the wider consumer demands. For instance, in 2021, Markforged introduced Onyx™ FR and Carbon Fiber FR materials, especially for the aerospace sector. According to the company, these two new materials are undergoing the qualification program of the National Center for Advanced Materials Performance (NCAMP). Through these offerings, Markforged seeks to support the aerospace firms with its fiber reinforcement technology, which will benefit them with lightweight high strength composites at lower costs and shorter lead times.

Strategic initiatives by major market players

Various leading industry players operating in aerospace composites market are focusing on forming strategic alliances aimed at developing new products and technologies to strengthen their market presence. To illustrate, in 2021, GKN Aerospace announced that it is leading an industry consortium in the UK known as ASCEND (Aerospace and Automotive Supply Chain Enabled Development). This consortium is geared towards developing, as well as expediting the composite material and processing technologies for the next generation of energy efficient aircraft.

Growing popularity of aramid fibers

The growing consumer proclivity towards aramid fibers can be credited to their high strength, impact resistance and low weight which makes them an ideal choice for aerospace applications. They are known to be over 40% lighter than the glass fibers which enhances the overall application. Besides, their resistance to chemicals and ability to work over a wide range of temperatures is also significantly fueling their adoption. On account of the increasing product adoption, aramid fibers segment in the aerospace composites market is anticipated to record a lucrative CAGR of around 6.5% through 2027.
