A composite is a combination of at least two materials, out of which one is a binding material (called the matrix) and the other is a reinforcement material (which is generally a fiber). The matrix can be metallic, ceramic, or polymeric. The fiber can be carbon, glass, boron, or aramid. The material that holds the fiber and binding material together termed as a resin. The resin can be epoxies, vinyl esters, polyurethanes, phenolic, and unsaturated polyesters. In case of fiber composites, the reinforcement determines the properties, while the matrix holds the reinforcement in place to yield composites called fiber composites. Typical composite materials are used in manufacturing processes of various sectors such as transportation, aerospace & defense, and construction. The unmanned systems composite market covers CFRP, GFRP, BFRP, and AFRP composite demand for unmanned systems: UAV, UUV, and UGV. The rising demand for a lightweight and electric conducive composite is the major driver for the market.
