Ceramic Matrix Composites Market Key Takeaways

Ceramic materials are non-metallic solid, inorganic, and crystalline in nature. Ceramic matrix has enhanced crack resistance and does not rupture easily under heavy weight as opposed to traditional ceramics. Growth of the automotive sector in developed countries such as India and China and increasing demand for ceramic matrix composites owning to their low weight, high friction, and temperature resistance properties are key factors responsible for the growth of the ceramic matrix composite market. The ceramic matrix is used in aircraft engines parts such as combustor liners, nozzles, and blades. Additionally, need for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles has increased the demand for ceramic matrix composites in the automotive industry.

Market Dynamics

  • High economic growth in countries in Asia Pacific and increase in standard of living play an important role in the market.
  • Increasing demand for ceramic matrix composite in developing countries, especially those in Asia Pacific, drive the market. Countries in the regions are adopting fuel-efficient engines, which are made from ceramic matrix composite.
  • Ceramic matrix composites are comparatively costlier than other alloys and metals. The price of ceramic matrix composites depends on the cost of ceramic fibers. This, in turn, is projected to hamper the ceramic matrix composites market.
  • The use of ceramic matrix composites in lightweight armors is a major application of the material fueling the market.
  • Ceramic matrix composites are used due to the high strength to weight ratio and low weight. The use of ceramic matrix composites in the production of sports cars and fuel efficient aircraft drive this market.
  • Companies are engaging in continuous research to develop novel technologies to manufacture ceramic matrix composite having a range of properties and capability for providing structural efficiency at low weights. Thus creating lucrative opportunities in the market.
  • Rise in use of such technologies is likely to lead to the development of lightweight ceramic matrix composites-based products creating opportunities in the market.

Impact of Covid-19

Covid-19 pandemic has hampered the global ceramic matrix composites market. The pandemic, especially affected the market in North America and Europe. The aerospace & defense and automotive industries have faced huge losses due to the lockdown. Companies have temporary seized activities at their facilities. This has reduced the production and consumption of ceramic matrix composites across all industries globally.
