Global Aerospace Composites Market Value to Amount to USD 10.3 Billion, Expects Visiongain

15 Oct 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Since composites were used for the first time on secondary structures in military aircraft around forty years ago, there has been a gradual expansion in their usage, into new market segments (commercial aircraft, helicopters) and alternative structures (airframes, fuselage, rotor blades). The value of the global aerospace composites market in 2012 is expected to reach $10.3bn.

According to the report “The Aerospace Composites Market 2012-2022” by Visiongain, the adoption of composites materials as replacement for traditional component materials, driven in part by a desire to reduce aircraft fuel and maintenance costs, was most evident with the introduction of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Made using more than 50% of composite materials, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner looks set to be one of the fastest selling commercial aircraft in history and its development has set a new standard in aircraft design, something which other OEM's have taken account of by integrating significant amounts of composite materials into their new aircraft. With the global demand for air travel opening up new opportunities for aviation, manufacturers are keen to exploit the advantage offered by composites.
