This report elaborates and analyzes the estimations and forecasts from consumption side in the aerospace plastics market. It provides a complete holistic picture of this market, the data involved for all segments on a regional level for the forecast period, as well as a comprehensive competitive landscape including market segmentation, geography, end-user, and company market share analysis.
Aerospace plastic materials fall under the category of advanced composite materials often known for its efficient modulus of elasticity, heat/flame resistance, and other high-strength physical properties. These plastics are viable alternatives used in military, rotary, freighter planes, and general aviation planes as compared to other conventional materials including steel and aluminum and the inadequate benefits they offer for aviation performance.
Aerospace plastics are extensively used for production of a broad range of aircrafts’ components such as decks, cabins, empennages, cockpits, wings, airframes, rotor blades, and many more. Owing to their lightweight, yet state-of-the-art performance abilities, they are an ideal option leading to lowered production costs.
Some of the renowned key products of the aerospace plastics market include GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic), and ARP (Aramid Reinforced Plastic). These product types and its different features have enabled the use of aerospace plastics in military, commercial, rotary and other aircraft applications, and have also enhanced an easy adoption in aircraft design as another characteristic in the aviation industry.
At present, the aerospace plastics constitutes 50% of the basic primary structures used in the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 commercial aircrafts. The implementation of aerospace plastics resources is likely to continue and increase in near future.
Other achievements observed in the aerospace plastics market include excellent strength to weight ratio, stability in the growth of the aviation industry, and rise in the adoption of aerospace plastics in airplane designs. These are some of the poised value-driven factors boosting the growth of this market. Nevertheless, the Greenpeace and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations imposed on the production of aerospace composite materials are posing a challenge for this market. These organizations implicate that high percentage of greenhouse gases have been monitored at the time of the production of aerospace plastics, which have eventually led us to the harm’s way, in terms of ozone layer depletion and other environmental problems. Furthermore, the high costs of raw materials, for instance PAN (Polyacrylonitrile) needed to produce plastics act as a barrier for the growth of this market too.
This study report includes a complete analysis of four key end-user segments including the study of commercial aircrafts segment that accounted for 72% of market share in 2011. This end-user segment was then followed by rotary aircrafts, military aircrafts, and other general aviation planes segments. Of all the main segments, fuselage was the chief application segment in the market for aerospace plastics. It accounted for over 28% of market share in 2011. In addition, empennage, flight deck, wings, and cabin areas are other key application segments analyzed in this study.
