Global Aerospace Nanotechnology Market 2017-2021

About Aerospace Nanotechnology

Nanostructure, a part of nanotechnology, is a wide and interdisciplinary area requiring R&D, which gained traction in the last two decades. Nanotechnology is defined as the study and the use of structures smaller than 100 nanometers. This technology is capable of transforming the ways in which materials are produced, and the functionalities of the same can be retained or augmented. Primarily, there are three types of nanomaterials employed in aerospace manufacturing; nanostructured metals, polymer nanocomposites, and anti-corrosion coatings. The use of nanotechnology or nanomaterial ensures that an airborne platform retains its operational superiority, enhances the physical properties of structural and non-structural polymers used in the construction of an aircraft, and deliver efficient nano and micro sensors used in spacecraft. The resultant components also prevent corrosions, thereby increasing the longevity of the platform. Technavio anticipates that the use of nanotechnology will reflect long-term sustainability and ensure enhancement in the overall performance of an aircraft/spacecraft.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global aerospace nanotechnology market to grow at a CAGR of 5.75% during the period 2017-2021.
