Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report, by Product Type (SiC/SiC, Oxides/Oxides, Carbon/Carbon, and Others), by End-Use Industries (Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Energy & Power, Electricals & Electronics) Forecast, 2019-2025.

CMCs have been gaining considerable importance due to their resistance to exposure to high temperature and corrosion. These are reinforced with either continuous or discontinuous fiber. Most of the CMCs are reinforced with silicon carbide fibers due to their high stiffness and strength. CMC holds several useful properties, such as high mechanical strength, toughness and stiffness, high corrosion resistance even at high temperatures, low density, and high thermal stability. The crucial factors supporting the growth of the market include rising demand for CMCs in aerospace and defense and automotive industry coupled with the shifting focus of composite manufacturers towards CMCs.

Safran S.A. in November 2018, inaugurated CMC research center named Safran Ceramics located in France. This new research center comprises nearly 20 doctoral students and a hundred specialists with access to 200 advanced machines. All equipment and machinery are interconnected to encourage the real-time acquisition of research data that will increase innovation and perform research. The company is boosting its investment in CMCs to decrease the weight of aircraft engines and leveraging efficiency, which in turn, will decrease fuel consumption. The research being performed at the center will replace the engine components produced from metal alloys with high temperature resistant and lighter composites. This shows that the manufacturers of CMCs have been significantly shifting their focus from metal to ceramic matrix composites. As a result, it is surging the demand for CMCs in applications with demanding thermal and mechanical requirements.

The global ceramic matrix composites market is segmented on the basis of product type and end-use industry. According to product type, the market is further classified into SiC/SiC, Oxides/Oxides, Carbon/Carbon, and others. SiC/SiC are estimated to account for the significant share due to higher toughness, higher toughness, better damage tolerance, high-temperature capability, higher oxidative durability, and lower permeability. Due to these properties, it is being significantly used in high-temperature structural applications, such as hot components in gas turbine engines. According to end-use industry, the market is further classified into automotive, aerospace & defense, energy & power, and electrical & electronics. Among these end-users, aerospace and defense are anticipated to contribute a prominent share due to rising demand for lightweight aircraft engines coupled with better thermal and lightweight capabilities of CMCs.

On the basis of geography, North America accounted for major share in the market due to a considerable rise in the US defense contracts for the production of aircraft. In addition, high military spending in the US is a key factor encouraging the demand for space vehicles, military vehicle armor, and spacecraft, which in turn, results in the adoption of CMCs for defense technologies. Additionally, Asia-Pacific is estimated to witness lucrative growth in the market due to the rising demand for electric and hybrid vehicles anda significant rise in military spending in the region.

Some major companies in the market include General Electric Co., Rolls-Royce PLC, SGL Carbon SE, Safran S.A., CeramTec GmbH, and Composite Horizons, LLC. Mergers and acquisitions, geographical expansion and product launches are some of the strategies adopted by these companies to gain a competitive advantage over their competitors. For instance, in October 2016, Rolls-Royce PLC expanded aerospace research center in Southern California (US). This expansion was valued $30 million which is aimed at R&D of CMC materials and processes for use in next-generation aircraft engine components. With this expansion, the company is aimed at improving the performance of its composite products by focusing on reducing fuel consumption, noise, and emissions.
