In this section, current and emerging applications for ceramic and carbon matrix composites are also identified and grouped in segments (aerospace and defense, electronics, energy and environmental, mechanical/chemical, medical and dental, sensors and instrumentation, transportation, and others).

The second section provides a technological review of ceramic and carbon matrix composites. This section offers a revised and detailed description of various types of ceramic composites; new and emerging materials for CMC and CAMC primary and secondary phases; and typical fabrication methods and innovative processes for ceramic and carbon matrix composites. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2013, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.

The third section entails a global market analysis of CMC and CAMC products. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (matrix type, application, and region), with actual data referring to the years 2014 and 2015, and estimates for 2016.

The analysis of current CMC and CAMC revenues is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends, based on industry growth, technological trends, and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for ceramic and carbon matrix composites within each segment, together with forecast compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) for the period 2016 through 2021.

In the fourth section of the study, which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading suppliers of ceramic and carbon matrix composites, together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these firms and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.

The fifth and final section includes an analysis of recently issued U.S. patents, with a summary of patents related to CMC and CAMC materials, fabrication methods, and applications. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application, and matrix type.
