Stringent regulatory framework pertaining to petro-based products is projected to restrict the raw materials availability. Furthermore, growth in carbon fibers usage in other applications is expected to restrict raw material availability over the eight year period. The industry is highly capital intensive in nature which is presumed to heighten entry barriers and further restrict the market players to economically survive in the market.
Significant advances in bio-based composites have reduced thermoplastics dependency and are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increased usage of thermoplastic & metal composites combination for aircraft body applications to ensure passenger comfort and decrease fuel consumption is estimated to have a positive impact on the industry growth.
PEEK market revenue was worth more than USD 74.6 million in 2015. High transition temperature in comparison to other engineering epoxy resins & polymers coupled with its ability to endure high mechanical loads is presumed to increase the PEEK popularity over other polymers in the near future. This material possesses properties such as long-term enhanced mechanical performance coupled with chemical resistance, weather & temperature and cracking and finds application in flight decks and cockpit windows due to its light weight.
