The global composite testing market is growing, due to the increase in the usage of composite in industries, like aerospace and defense, transportation, and wind energy, along with strict standards, imposed on to govern the testing for composites. Owing to their superior performing capacity and strength, composites are used in vehicles and interior & exterior of aircraft. Composites are required to adhere to the proprietary testing standards of manufacturers and other strict composite testing standards, in order to maintain durability and ensure safety.
The global composite testing market has been segmented on the basis of testing method, product type, application, and region.
Based on testing method, the market has been segmented into destructive and non-destructive testing methods. The market for destructive composite testing method is growing, due to the increasing dispersion of composites in the wind energy and sporting goods applications.
On the basis of product type, the global market has been divided into continuous fiber composites, discontinuous fiber composites, polymer matrix composites, and ceramic matrix composites. The continuous fiber composites market segment is growing, due to the rise in demand from airline companies and automotive manufacturers, operating across the globe. Additionally, the growing demand for continuous fiber composites, from advanced aircraft, light-weight automotive, and fighter planes, is supporting the growth of the global composite testing market.
The global composite testing market, on the basis of application, has been segmented into building & construction, transportation, wind energy, sporting goods, aerospace and defense, and electrical & electronics. The aerospace and defense application segment led the global composite testing market, which can be attributed to the growing demand for composites testing services in advanced commercial aircraft. These aircraft have extensive application of composites in their structures, which require these composites to undergo various testing methods, in order to ensure safety and performance efficiency.
AREAS WITH SCOPE FOR THE GLOBAL COMPOSITE TESTING MARKET
Europe accounts for the largest share in the global composite testing market. This factor can be attributed to the high demand for composites from the European commercial aircraft and transportation industry, along with the presence of major composite testing service providers and stringent regulatory norms, imposed by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), to ensure and maintain the quality of composites.
