San Francisco, CA, July 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The global market for aerospace plastics is expected to reach USD 13.48 billion by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. These plastics are preferred substitutes for aluminum and steel in the aviation industry mainly because of high performance and low weight which results in better fuel efficiency. Increasing passenger traffic across emerging markets is expected to boost the demand for new aircraft which in turn would augment the demand for aerospace plastics. In addition, the market will be further augmented by emerging trends in composites and nanocomposites.
Airframe and fuselage was the largest application segment accounting for 14,356.3 tons of aerospace plastics demand in 2013. Aerospace plastics are extensively used in cabin areas application owing to high pressure resistance properties and accounted for over 12,400 tons of aerospace demand in 2013.
The report “Aerospace Plastics Market By Application (Airframe & Fuselage, Wings & Rotor Blades, Empennage, Flight Deck & Cockpit, Cabin Areas), By End User (Commercial & Freighter Aircrafts, Military Aircrafts, Rotary Aircrafts, General Aviation) And Segment Forecasts To 2020” is available now to Grand View Research customers and can also be purchased directly at http://www.grandviewresearch.com/industry-analysis/aerospace-plastics-market
Further key findings from the study suggest:
• Global aerospace plastics demand was 51,146.5 tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 112,503.1 tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2014 to 2020.
• Europe was the largest regional market for aerospace plastics with revenue USD 3.45 billion in 2013. The presence of large aircraft manufacturers coupled with significant number of aerospace OEM’s is expected to boost the demand for plastics in the region. In addition, the region is also expected to witness significant growth, at an estimated CAGR of 8.0% from 2014 to 2020.
• Military aircrafts are expected to witness fastest growth for plastics, at an estimated CAGR of 13.1% from 2014 to 2020, in terms of volume. Increasing security concerns worldwide are expected to drive demand in this segment.
• Commercial and freighter aircrafts were the largest end use segment in 2013 with plastic demand of 36,392.9 tons owing to increased number of passengers opting for air transport coupled with increasing number of service providers. This segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.1% from 2014 to 2020.
• Key Companies in the market include Zoltek, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Hexcel Corporation, SGL Carbon, and Toray Carbon Fibers America Inc.
