LONDON, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Background:
According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the aerospace CMC industry looks positive with opportunities in commercial aircraft, defense, and spacecraft applications. The global aerospace CMC industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2016 to 2021. The major growth drivers of this market are increasing penetration of CMC in the future generation aircraft and spacecraft and its superior thermo-mechanical properties. CMCs have been developed to achieve a damage tolerant quasi-ductile fracture behavior and to maintain all other advantages of monolithic ceramics at high temperatures; and offer better performance than traditional inorganic fiber-polymer composites. In this market, Oxide/Oxide, SiC/SiC and Carbon/Carbon are the three types of CMC.
Lucintel predicts that the demand for the SiC/SiC CMC is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period supported by its excellent mechanical properties, such as oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance, and low density even at high temperatures. Within the aerospace CMC market, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest market with the highest growth during forecast period due to increasing usage of CMC materials in commercial aircraft like A320Neo, B737Max, and C919 and aircraft brake disks. By component, landing gear is expected to remain the largest market for CMC due to the usage of CMC in aircraft brakes.
CMC consumption in aircraft engine is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period due to increasing usage of CMC in aero engines. North America is expected to remain the largest as well as the highest growing region during the forecast period due to presence of major aircraft manufacturers, increasing penetration of CMC in aircraft, and usage of CMC in the hotter sections of engines. Recently, GE has started using CMC in shrouds of LeapX engine and Rolls-Royce has plans to use CMC in shrouds, combustor liner, airfoils in the upcoming engines. For market expansion, the report suggests innovation and new product development, where the unique properties of CMC can be capitalized.
The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and the development of performance-driven solutions for end users. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include application of CMC materials in heating areas, usage of CMCs in aerospace industry to reduce NOx and CO2 emission, and usage of CMC to reduce operating cost. 3M, GE Aviation, SGL Carbon SE, COI Ceramics Inc, and CoorsTek Inc. are among the major supplier of CMC in the aerospace industry. Some companies are opting for M&A as a strategic initiative for driving growth.
