The global composite surfacing films market is forecasted to grow at an impressive rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 298.9 million in 2023. Organic growth of the aircraft industry coupled with an increased penetration of composites in the structural sections of the next-generation aircraft is the primary driver of the sustainable demand for composite surfacing films in the aerospace & defense industry. Airbus anticipated that there would be total deliveries of 37,390 aircraft worth US$ 5.8 trillion in the global marketplace during 2018-2037. Asia-Pacific and North America would be the biggest demand generators with a combined share of 59.4% of the total aircraft deliveries during 2018-2037. An expected healthy CAGR of 4.4% in air passenger traffic during 2018-2037 will chiefly drive the demand for the aircraft. This factor will create a sustainable demand for composite parts incorporating composite surfacing films for aircraft exteriors in the foreseeable future.
