Global CFC Market for Aerospace Industry: Focus on Fiber Type, Resin Type, Process, Aircraft Type, Application, and Honeycomb Panels and Other Panels – Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2023

Global CFC Market for Aerospace Industry: Focus on Fiber Type, Resin Type, Process, Aircraft Type, Application, and Honeycomb Panels and Other Panels – Analysis and Forecast, 2018-2023

Continuous Fiber Composites (CFC) are segregated based on fiber type, namely glass fiber, carbon fiber, and others. Each of the fiber types are further segregated based on their form structure. Some of the composites are woven fabrics, non-crimp fabrics, unidirectional fiber tapes, and non-woven mats. These continuous fiber composites offer various unique properties such as resistance to corrosion, excessive heat, and extreme temperature, while having high electrical & thermal conductivities, low density, high ductility & strength, lighter weight increased fuel economy, reduction in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, and longer service life thereby, reducing the cost of maintenance. The CFC market for aerospace industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% and 6.9% between 2018 and 2023 in terms of value and volume, respectively.
