In this market, carbon fiber, glass fiber, and aramid fiber are used to fabricate various aircraft components. On the basis of our comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that carbon fiber based composites is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Increasing penetration of carbon composites in commercial aircraft, such as B787 and A350XWB is expected to drive the demand for this segment over the forecast period from 2019 to 2025.

Within aerospace composite market, commercial aircraft will remain the largest market by value and volume consumption followed by military aircraft.

By type of structure, primary structure will remain the largest market by value and volume due to higher composite consumption.

North America will remain the largest region during the forecast period due to a higher demand for newer aircraft and the ongoing replacement of an aging fleet.

An emerging trend, which has a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, includes the recycling of advanced composites. Hexcel, Cytec Solvay Group, Toray, Gurit, and Teijin are among the major suppliers of aerospace composites materials.
