Why buy this 491-page report? (up from 285 pages in 2019)

Because at this time of unprecedented market stress, we offer rigorous and insightful market analysis within the aerospace composites market sector from raw material to end applications in aerostructures, engine components, and cabin interiors.

In this report, we examine and quantify the aerospace polymer-based composite market covering fibres and resin, intermediate materials, and finished composite components and structures, and their end applications aerostructures, engines, interiors, and tooling. We consider the respective cases for increased composite use in both Commercial and Military aerospace, the evolution of composite manufacturing methods, and how the varying success of aircraft programmes impacts composites for end use.

Our 2021 report offers comprehensive quantitative market analysis including: 

  • Detailed comparisons of the market in 2019 showing the effects of the pandemic on the different market sectors.
