Industry & Technology Overview

In 2021, the global high-speed aircraft & missiles composite material market was valued at $1,631.9 million.

Global High-Speed Aircraft and Missiles Composite Material Market Overview

The global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market was valued to be at $1,631.9 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 2.47% during the forecast period 2022-2032 and reach $2,083.0 million by 2032. The growth in the global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market is expected to be driven by increasing defense spending on hypersonic and supersonic aircraft and missiles.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Over the past few years, there has been a drastic shift toward adopting composite materials over conventional metals. Moreover, the market has been witnessing a drift in the trend of using supersonic and hypersonic missiles and aircraft. With the increasing investment in missile defense spending and orders placed for supersonic military aircraft, the demand for composite material has also significantly increased.

Several projects are currently in progress to produce advanced composite materials that offer high strength and are lightweight, which improves the overall performance of aircraft, resulting in the proliferation of the high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market. Aircraft manufacturing engineers are testing materials for supersonic flight, which includes both innovative and traditional materials. Several factors such as performance, cost, strength, and weight are taken into consideration for the composite material selection of hypersonic and supersonic aircraft and missiles. Each component of an aircraft is expected to maintain its mechanical properties throughout the life of the aircraft and perform just as well after 500 hours of flight time as it would after 50 hours.

Carbon fiber laminates are widely used on aircraft and missile support structures. Also, high-modulus, high-thermal conductivity carbon fiber laminates with low moisture absorption resins, typically cyanate ester, are always used for manufacturing optical benches and other aircraft structures, which must sustain dimensional stability for accuracy.

Impact

The missile defense market is observing rising investment across hypersonic missile capabilities, and this is driving the investments across comparable defensive capabilities. Such efforts are focusing on large volume production of interceptor platforms across hypersonic and supersonic segments. This will create the need for enhanced composites in significantly large volumes.

Commercial aircraft manufacturers are increasing their spending to develop supersonic aircraft to reduce travel time for long-distance travel. This is anticipated to increase the demand for composite materials in significant large volumes.

Market Segmentation:

Segmentation 1: by End User
•       Defense
•       Commercial

Based on end user, the global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market in the end-user segment is expected to be dominated by the defense.

Industry & Technology Overview

Global High-Speed Aircraft and Missiles Composite Material Market Overview

The global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market was valued to be at $1,631.9 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 2.47% during the forecast period 2022-2032 and reach $2,083.0 million by 2032. The growth in the global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market is expected to be driven by increasing defense spending on hypersonic and supersonic aircraft and missiles.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Over the past few years, there has been a drastic shift toward adopting composite materials over conventional metals. Moreover, the market has been witnessing a drift in the trend of using supersonic and hypersonic missiles and aircraft. With the increasing investment in missile defense spending and orders placed for supersonic military aircraft, the demand for composite material has also significantly increased.

Several projects are currently in progress to produce advanced composite materials that offer high strength and are lightweight, which improves the overall performance of aircraft, resulting in the proliferation of the high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market. Aircraft manufacturing engineers are testing materials for supersonic flight, which includes both innovative and traditional materials. Several factors such as performance, cost, strength, and weight are taken into consideration for the composite material selection of hypersonic and supersonic aircraft and missiles. Each component of an aircraft is expected to maintain its mechanical properties throughout the life of the aircraft and perform just as well after 500 hours of flight time as it would after 50 hours.

Carbon fiber laminates are widely used on aircraft and missile support structures. Also, high-modulus, high-thermal conductivity carbon fiber laminates with low moisture absorption resins, typically cyanate ester, are always used for manufacturing optical benches and other aircraft structures, which must sustain dimensional stability for accuracy.

Impact

The missile defense market is observing rising investment across hypersonic missile capabilities, and this is driving the investments across comparable defensive capabilities. Such efforts are focusing on large volume production of interceptor platforms across hypersonic and supersonic segments. This will create the need for enhanced composites in significantly large volumes.

Commercial aircraft manufacturers are increasing their spending to develop supersonic aircraft to reduce travel time for long-distance travel. This is anticipated to increase the demand for composite materials in significant large volumes.

Market Segmentation:

Segmentation 1: by End User
•       Defense
•       Commercial

Based on end user, the global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market in the end-user segment is expected to be dominated by the defense.

FAQ's

What are the composite materials?

A composite material is produced from two or more constituent materials. These constituent materials have notably dissimilar chemical or physical properties and are merged to create a material with properties, unlike the individual elements. Composites have been employed in aerospace and defense applications for decades, and their application continues to grow.

What are the key trends in the high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market?

The key trends in the high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market include the use of carbon fiber. In hypersonic and supersonic aircraft, composite panels are used to provide for the thermal protection system (TPS) required for aircraft at high-temperature flight. The temperature capability and low thermal expansion offer additional benefits by reducing the amount of TPS material required, which reduces the weight of the vehicle. Carbon fiber laminates are widely used on aircraft and missile support structures.

What new strategies are being adopted by the existing market players to strengthen their market position in the industry?

The global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market has seen major development by key players operating in the market, such as business expansion, contracts, partnership, collaboration, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures. According to BIS Research, the majority of the companies preferred collaboration, contracts, and agreements as a strategy to further increase their growth in the global high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market. Companies such as Applied Composites Holdings, LLC, Cecence Ltd., Spirit AeroSystems, Inc., Airborne, and ACPT Inc. have majorly adopted the contract, collaboration, and agreement strategies.

For a new company looking to enter the high-speed aircraft and missiles composite material market, which areas could it focus upon to stay ahead of the existing competition?

There is an increasing demand for composite material in the manufacturing of hypersonic and supersonic aircraft and missiles.
