Composites are made from the combination of two or more different materials resulting in a different physical or chemical properties than of the individual components. The fiber reinforced polymers are mainly used in the aerospace industry. These are mainly composed of carbon fibers, glass fibers, and aramid fibers. Composites are mainly used for the aerospace structure and components that need to be lightweight while also possessing the superior strength. Composites have found a wide range of applications in commercial aircraft, rotorcraft, UAVs and military aircraft. These have been largely used for an aircraft fuselage, tail, wings, aircraft cabin interiors, aircraft seats, and jet engine components.
The high corrosion resistance of composites in comparison to metal have made it very useful for various aerospace applications. High resistance to fatigue and corrosion have also led to the reduction in scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance requirement of composites in comparison to metal. It also leads to significant savings in MRO costs. The composites also have the very high strength to weight ratio. It makes the composites lightweight while possessing a similar or better strength than metal. Use of composites over the metal hugely reduces the overall weight of the aircraft also resulting in the reduction in fuel consumption, which has also largely driven the utilization of composites for aerospace applications. With new entrants into the sector and increased demand for related products from the public, the segment is expected to grow considerably during the next 5 years and stand on the top being the leaders holding their success in the form of patentsWho can use the report?
