Counterpoint released its fifth report on the Aerospace Composites market – Aerospace Composites 2022.

Why buy this 600-page report?

Because at this time of unprecedented supply chain pressure, 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. Market share of suppliers throughout the value chain were significantly affected by their exposure to military vs civil programmes, as well as their exposure to Airbus vs Boeing. Raw material price inflation also affected suppliers’ profitability, with Tier2s at the centre of the crisis.
