A detailed and comprehensive multi-client study of the global market for metal matrix composites (MMCs) as well as potential business opportunities in the future
Analyses of global market trends, with data for 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2020
Coverage of the underlying business issues driving the MMC market, as well as assessments of new and potential products that companies are developing
A review of MMC development and the overall composites marketplace
A look at processing technology trends and secondary processing and fabrication methods as well as a detailed assessment of markets and product applications
Coverage of end-use applications including ground transportation, electronics, commercial and defense aerospace, industrial and defense, and recreational equipment
Detailed analyses of market growth, materials, production, status of commercial development, barriers to entry, and market leaders


SCOPE OF REPORT

The scope of this report is comprehensive, covering the present status of and future prospects for MMCs in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the rest of the world (ROW). Basically, the scope of this report includes diverse metals such as aluminum, nickel, and refractory. These are analyzed in detail as well as technology developments, market conditions and opportunities, and five-year forecasts. The role of new technologies is reviewed. This BCC study analyzes the current global market in detail and identifies the most promising market opportunities. The ultimate end-use markets: ground transportation, aircraft industry, space and defense systems, nuclear energy, consumer electronics and others are examined in detail, as is the global market for MMC systems.

It was the intent of this study to explore new market opportunities for reinforced metals and alloys that have more recently entered into commercial production.

In order to generate the information necessary to construct a reasonable future market for MMCs, it is necessary to undertake an examination of the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of materials and technologies. In addition to various MMCs, it also covers the many issues concerning the merits and future prospects of the business. The report provides a review of the MMCs industry and its structure, and the many companies involved in providing these materials and technologies. The competitive landscape of the main players in the market is also discussed.

The values presented in the forecast tables represent the value (in millions of dollars) and volume (in thousand tons) of the sales of MMCs to the end-use product market worldwide. All growth rates mentioned in the tables and in the text are based on the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 through the year 2020. The compounding method of calculating growth rates is used.
