DUBLIN, August 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Aerospace Composite Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the global aerospace composites market to grow at a CAGR of 6.81% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global aerospace composites market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report provides a global overview and looks at market segmentation by composite type (glass, carbon, and aramid) and growth prospects by region (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas). It also presents the market landscape and a corresponding analysis of the prominent vendors in the market. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Adoption of composites in jet engines will be one of the prime trends leading to market growth. The next-generation GE Leap engines are expected to feature a considerable amount of carbon ceramic composite in the high-pressure turbines, replacing the nickel-metal alloys. GE is also using carbon fiber composites for its jet engine fan blades that will be launched in the market along with the GE9X engine powering Boeing's 777X aircraft. The composite has allowed GE9X engine to have thinner and fewer blades, resulting in a 5% reduction in fuel consumption than similar other engines.
According to the report, one of the key drivers in market growth is the reduction in need for MRO necessity. Metal structures and components are susceptible to long-term fatigue. Thus, the majority of expenses accounts for the operation, maintenance, and repair of aircraft rather than the cost of acquisition in its total life cycle. On the other hand, composite structures retain their strength and characteristics for a longer period and do not decompose. Thus, the cost of structural inspection and other MRO requirements is less than metals.
Further, the report states that complex design process will be one of the challenges faced by the market. Though composites are more desirable than metals, its use poses issues in damage tolerance, delamination, and design challenges. Metals exhibit plasticity, which makes them capable of undergoing deformation (bend or stretch) under high loads before they break. It makes the metal more suitable to handle small impacts and loads with little reduction in the basic strength of the structure. The high plasticity of metals allows them to distribute the loads on the structure, saving them from conditions of permanent structural failure.
