Aerospace composites market to reach $10.3 billion in 2012, according to Visiongain Report

LONDON, 1 Oct. 2012. Demand for fuel-efficient aircraft and more refined composite materials manufacturing are driving positive and continuous growth in the aerospace composites market, which Visiongain analysts predict will reach $10.3 billion in value by year’s end.

Aerospace composites will continue to achieve growth over the next decade, in large part due to a better understanding of the physical attributes of composite materials which can be integrated into the design and development process, as well as increasing demand for lighter and more fuel-efficient aircraft, according to Visiongain’s “The Aerospace Composites Market 2012-2022” report.

“Composite usage in aerospace is a growth market given the potential opportunities arising from the expansion of air travel, the importance attached to maintaining airline safety and the need by airlines to reduce operational costs,” reveals the report.

Visiongain’s report includes a forecast for the global aerospace composites market, three material-type submarkets (glass fiber, carbon fibers, aramid fibers), and four aircraft-type submarkets (commercial, business jets, military, and commercial helicopters).

Ten national aerospace composites markets are forecast and analyzed by Visiongain over the period 2012-2022. The report provides profiles of 20 leading companies operating within the market, and includes two interviews providing expert insight.
