This market report, from Stratview Research, studies the thermoplastic composites market in the global aerospace defense industry over the trend and forecast period of 2012 to 2023. The report provides detailed insights on the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.

Thermoplastic Composites Market in the Global Aerospace & Defense (A&D) Industry: Highlights

As per Stratview Research, the global A&D thermoplastic composites market offers significant growth opportunities during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023 to reach an estimated value of US$ 636 million in 2023, which offers an opportunity to the composites industry players to align themselves with the market growth.

There are several factors bolstering the growth of thermoplastic composites market in the global aerospace & defense industry. The author of the report cited increasing commercial and regional aircraft deliveries, increasing demand for advanced composites in the structural applications of aircraft, increasing production rates of composites rich aircraft (B787 and A350XWB), increasing demand for thermoplastic composites to fabricate structural and interior parts, and superior benefits of thermoplastic composites including recyclability and reduction in parts count as the key factors that are proliferating the demand for thermoplastic composites in the aerospace & defense industry. 

Based on aircraft type, commercial aircraft is projected to remain the most dominant aircraft type in the global A&D thermoplastic composites market during the forecast period. Increasing production of commercial aircraft coupled with increasing penetration of thermoplastic composites, especially in commercial aircraft, is likely to fuel the growth of the segment in the coming years.

In terms of resin type, PPS resin dominates the A&D thermoplastic composites market and is expected to remain the largest segment during the forecast period as well. PPS resins have good dimensional stability even at elevated temperatures and in harsh chemical environment. They also have the advantage of molding complex parts easily with a tight tolerance. The resins have successfully found usage in various aircraft applications, especially on airframe applications.

As per the report, carbon fiber is projected to remain the largest fiber type in the global A&D thermoplastic composites market during the forecast period. Extremely low weight, coupled with high tensile and compression strength is the key growth driver of carbon fiber in the A&D thermoplastic composites market.
