Ceramic matrix composites are extensively used in the aerospace & defense application

Owing to their high strength and light weight, a majority of the ceramic matrix composites are used to make exterior aerospace & defense components such as exhaust nozzle, nose cap and engines. Therefore, major companies operating in ceramic matrix composites are expanding their production facilities to meet increasing demand for ceramic matrix composites from aircraft manufacturers.

North America accounts for a major market share of the ceramic matrix composites market

North America accounted for the largest market share in ceramic matrix composites, globally, in 2015. The growth of the ceramic matrix composites market in this region is driven mainly by growing the aerospace & defense industry on account of low interest rates, presence of established ceramic matrix composites players, and stringent environmental regulations emphasizing on the use of lightweight and fuel-efficient materials.

Major industry leaders in ceramic matrix composites have announced significant investments for construction of new manufacturing facilities to develop next generation gas turbine engines to meet demand for greater fuel efficiency in aviation propulsion. For example, General Electric Company has orders for more than 6,000 new LEAP gas turbine engine units which are made from ceramic matrix composites.

Rolls Royce and Boeing/ATK-COIC are also anticipating similar investments in the U.S. to produce ceramic matrix composites’ components for gas turbine engines.

These investments in the U.S. are expected to further boost the ceramic matrix composites market in North America.
