The global aerospace composites market is projected to reach USD 32.35 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.95%, from 2016 to 2021. The increasing demand for high strength, light weight and fuel efficient materials and the high worldwide growth in the aerospace industry are the key factors responsible for the growth of the global aerospace composites market.
The global aerospace composites market is segmented into fiber type, resin type, aircraft type, application and region. The aerospace composites market, by fiber type is further segmented into glass fiber, carbon fiber, aramid fiber and other fiber composites. Carbon fiber composites had the largest market share in terms of value owing to the high demand from commercial airline companies for exterior structural applications such as fuselage, wings, undercarriage, propulsion system, and others.

The aerospace composites market, by resin type is segmented into epoxy, phenolic, polyester, polyamide, thermoplastic and others. The thermoplastic resin composites market is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period due to the increasing use of these composites for interior structural aerospace applications, the lower curing time required, and the ease of molding into various shapes. The epoxy resin composites account for a larger market share than that of the thermoplastic resin, owing to the high demand for epoxy resin in the manufacture of all primary load carrying composite airframe components.

Aerospace composites are used in interior as well as exterior structural components of aircraft.  Interior applications of composites include cabin parts such as floorboards, luggage bins, trolleys, ceilings, panels, seats and other components. Exterior structural applications constituted a major portion in the aerospace composites market, by value and volume in 2015. There is a high demand for carbon fiber composites in airframe structures owing to their light weight, increased fuel efficiency, superior performance, easy maintenance and reduced part counts.

North America is expected to be the fastest-growing market for aerospace composites from 2016 to 2021. The growth in the North American aviation industry, increase in the number of aircraft deliveries, and capacity expansion in aerospace composites production by various leading players are a few factors leading to the growth of the aerospace composites market in this region. The U.S. leads the aerospace composites market in North America. Its consumption of aerospace composites has grown remarkably due to the high demand from commercial airline companies, increased budget for defense aircraft programs, and a stable economy.
