Investments & Expansions, Acquisitions, and Agreements/Partnerships/Joint Ventures are the Key Development Strategies Adopted by the Leading Players to Grow in the Global Ceramic Matrix Composites Market


Ceramic matrix composites are becoming crucial in the structural applications of aircraft and defense applications. In these applications, the demand for ceramic matrix composites is in commercial aerospace gas turbine engines, nose cap, and exhaust nozzle and missile propagation systems. The advantages offered by ceramic matrix composites such as light weight, increased fuel efficiency, high tensile strength, and ease in maintenance are increasing the penetration of these composites in the structural applications of various aircraft. The ceramic matrix composites market is projected to reach USD 7.51 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.65%, from 2016 to 2026.

The key companies offering ceramic matrix composites are mainly involved in investments & expansions, acquisitions, and agreements/partnerships/joint ventures to strengthen their position in the global ceramic matrix composites market. Through investments & expansions, the key players are trying to increase their manufacturing capabilities of ceramic matrix composites to cater the increase in demand from emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific. In addition, the players are investing to offer new, technologically advanced ceramic matrix composites products. For example, General Electric Company has invested in a 100 acre manufacturing center in Huntsville to manufacture jet engines and land based gas turbines for electric power.

From 2012 to 2016, agreements/partnerships/joint ventures, investments & expansions, and acquisitions were the key strategies of the market players. Investments & expansions accounted for a share of 46.67% among all development activities in the global ceramic matrix composites market. Acquisition was the second most-preferred growth strategy, and accounted for 26.67% of the total development strategies in the global ceramic matrix composites market.
