Aerospace Composites Market Worth $10.3 Billion in 2012

Introduction of new aircraft models to reduce fuel and maintenance costs drive adoption of composite materials

FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 27, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —

FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The adoption of composites materials as replacement for traditional component materials, driven in part by a desire to reduce aircraft fuel and maintenance costs, was most evident with the introduction of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Made using more than 50% of composite materials, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner looks set to be one of the fastest selling commercial aircraft in history and its development has set a new standard in aircraft design, something which other OEM's have taken account of by integrating significant amounts of composite materials into their new aircraft. With global demand for air travel opening up new opportunities for aviation, manufacturers are keen to exploit the advantage offered by composites.

Three new market research reports are available from Global Information Inc. to help current and future investors, companies and research centers broaden their knowledge of the aerospace composites industry, commercial aircraft modernization and aircraft manufacturing in China.

The Aerospace Composites Market 2012-2022

Since composites were first used on secondary structures in military aircraft around forty years ago, there has been a gradual expansion in their usage, into new market segments (commercial aircraft, helicopters) and alternative structures (airframes, fuselage, rotor blades). Visiongain has determined that the value of the global aerospace composites market in 2012 will reach $10.3bn.

Aircraft Manufacturing Market in China 2011-2015

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Aircraft Manufacturing market in China to reach US$35.7 billion by 2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increased passenger and freight use. The Aircraft Manufacturing market in China has also been witnessing environmental standards stimulating aircraft replacement. However, the hesitance of foreign buyers to purchase Chinese aircrafts poses the biggest challenge in the Aircraft Manufacturing market in China. Key vendors dominating this market space include Chengdu Aircraft Industrial Co. Ltd., Shenyang Aircraft Corp., Xi'an Aero-Engine (Group) Ltd. and Xi'an Aircraft Industry Co. Ltd.
