The Aerospace Composites Market 2012-2022, a new report released Sept 28 by market analyst Visiongain (London, U.K.) indicates that the global aerospace composites market will reach a value of $10.3 billion (USD) this year as the manufacturing process of composite materials into aircraft is refined and developed and the demand for new fuel efficient aircraft gathers pace.

According to Visiongain, the aerospace composites market is expected to record positive and continuous growth over the next decade, in large part due to a better understanding of the physical attributes of composite materials, which can be successfully integrated into the design and development process and the increasing demand for lighter and more fuel efficient aircraft. Visiongain credits a predicted "expansion of air travel, the importance attached to maintaining airline safety and the need by airlines to reduce operational costs" as the key forces that will shape the aerospace composites industry.

The report contains 101 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the aerospace composites market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (figured in U.S. dollars) for the global aerospace composites market, as well as submarket forecasts for three reinforcement fiber types (glass, carbon and aramid) and four submarket forecasts by aircraft type (commercial jets, business jets, military, and commercial helicopters). In addition, 10 leading national aerospace composites markets are forecast and analyzed by Visiongain over the period 2012-2022.

The report provides profiles of 20 leading companies operating within the market, and includes two interviews that provide expert insight alongside the Visiongain analysis.
