Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand from the Aerospace and Defense Sector

  • The high-performance fibers are a perfect choice for numerous aerospace and defense applications as they provide strength, endurance, and stability as required.
  • These fibers are designed for specialized use, based on the requirement of specific applications. These fibers are credited with exceptional weight to strength ratio, robustness, resistance to tear, electrical conductivity, and also chemical resistance. However, these attributes may vary from product to product.
  • In the defense industry, the use of high-performance fiber-reinforced plastics are present in missile defense, ground defense, and military marine.
  • In Asia-Pacific, the aerospace industry is growing at a fast rate, as many of the countries have increased their spending on defense platforms and technologies. In addition, Southeast Asia continues to be the fastest-growing region in terms of passenger travel.
  • Increasing use of high-performance fiber in aircraft, coupled with the increasing number of aircraft launched in the market, annually, is expected to provide a huge growth opportunity for the high-performance fiber market in the aerospace industry in the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market. In the region, China is the largest economy, in terms of GDP. China is one of the fastest emerging economies and has become one of the biggest production houses in the world, today. The country’s manufacturing sector is one of the major contributors to the country’s economy.
  • The Chinese aircraft industry depicted significant growth over the years. According to Boeing, China is estimated to require around 7,600 new commercial aircraft, valued at USD 1.2 trillion, over the next two decades.
  • Foreign investment in China has also been extended into the aviation sector, which is projected to register a CAGR of 6%, owing to China’s geographical location, which provides easy access to the industrial goods markets in the neighboring countries, as well as, other countries globally, making it a major access point for manufacturers and suppliers.
  • China is the largest manufacturer of automobiles in the world. The country’s automotive sector has been shaping up for product evolution, with the country focusing on manufacturing products, in order to ensure fuel economy, and to minimize emissions (owing to the growing environmental concerns due to mounting pollution in the country).
  • The production is expected to reach 30 million units by 2020, owing to the “Made in China 2025” initiative support in upgrading the existing low-cost mass production to higher value-added advanced manufacturing. “Automobile Mid and Long-Term Development Plan”, was released in 2017, with an objective to make China a strong auto power in the next ten years.
  • Due to all such factors, the market for high-performance fibers in the region is expected to have a steady growth during the forecast period.
