    Segment Analysis

    By Product Type-

    The market is segmented based on product type as oxide/oxide, silicon carbide/silicon carbide, carbon/carbon, and others. Carbon/Carbon is expected to remain the most dominant product type over the next five years, driven by its excellent properties, such as high temperature resistance, low coefficient of thermal expansion, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and hardness.

    Carbon/Carbon is preferred in a wide array of industries including aerospace & defense and automotive. Brakes, nose cone, and wing leading edges are some of the key carbon/carbon applications in the aerospace & defense industry. Silicon carbide/Silicon Carbide is projected to witness the highest growth for the same period, driven by development of new applications in the aircraft engines, such as low-pressure turbine blades and turbine shroud.

    By End-use Industry-

    The market is segmented based on end-use industry as aerospace & defense, transportation, energy, electrical & electronic, and others. Aerospace & defense industry dominates the market and is expected to remain the largest segment over the next five years.

    Increasing use of carbon/carbon brakes by replacing conventional steel brakes, development of new applications, increasing penetration of ceramic matrix composites in the commercial and military aircraft engines, and increasing production rates of key commercial aircraft programs in order to meet huge order backlogs are some of the major drivers contributing to a healthy demand for CMC in the aerospace & defense industry.

    Regional Insights

    North America is expected to remain the largest market for CMCs during the forecast period. High aircraft engine production and manufacturing capital of aerospace & defense industry with presence of several small to large players are major growth drivers of the market in North America. The US alone accounted for more than 90% of the North American CMC market and is projected to remain the growth engine of the region.

    Asia-Pacific is projected to witness the highest growth in the market during the forecast period, driven by China and India. Increasing effort for the development of commercial, regional, and military aircraft to become self-sustained, increasing military expenditures, and commencement of assembly plants by both commercial aircraft manufacturers in China will act as the key driving factors of the region.
