Polymer Matrix Composites Market - Global Industry Insights,
Opportunity Analysis, 2018–2025
Polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are mainly comprised of organic polymer matrix that are
bonded together by continuous or short fibers. Polymer matrix composites are widely used
due to their fracture toughness, higher strength and stiffness, low costs compared to ceramic
matrix composites, and simple fabrication method. Polymer matrix composites are named
after their type of reinforced fiber such as carbon fiber composites, hybrid fiber composites,
and glass fiber composite material or glass fiber reinforced plastics. Modulus and strength of
the reinforced fibers are much higher in comparison to normal matrix material, which makes
PMCs a better load bearing component due to which the global polymer matrix composites
market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

Polymer matrix composites due to its natural characteristics is expected to be the fastest
growing market and widely used composites material across the various industries such as
aerospace, automotive, sports goods, shipping industries etc. Polymer matrix composites
possess some inherent characteristics such as high specific modulus, good fatigue
resistance and high damage tolerance, temperature resistance and good ablation
resistance, improved high electric insulation and high frequency dielectric properties,
excellent chemical corrosion resistance, and high specific strength in comparison to
conventional materials such as ceramic matrix composites and metals along with others.
Owing to these factors global polymer matrix composites market is expected to increase at a
significant growth rate over the forecast period (2018-2025).
The aerospace industry is expected to propel the growth of polymer matrix composites
market in the near future due to its increasing use in manufacturing of fins of civil aircraft,
planes in satellites, antennas, rocket motor casing, airframes of helicopters, fighter aircrafts
and small aircrafts. Natural properties of polymer matrix composites has led to an increasing
application of the same in healthcare and sports sectors. Burgeoning growth of these
end-use industries is expected to drive growth of the polymer matrix composites market over
the forecast period.
Market Outlook – Rise in Aerospace Industry to Propel the Growth of Polymer Matrix
Composites Market
North America accounted for the largest share in the global polymer matrix composites
market in 2016, followed by Asia Pacific, poised to be the fastest growing market over the
forecast period. Rapid technological growth and adaptation of polymer matrix composites in
aerospace, medical, defense and automotive industries along with others are the main
factors to drive the growth of the global market in the forecast period.
The aerospace industry is estimated to have the highest consumption of 50 percent of the
polymer matrix composites in U.S. region. Recent growth in stealth technology and all
weather operating aircrafts in defense industry are the major factors for the significant
growth of polymer matrix composites in the global market. Defense and commercial
transport aircraft is expected to be the second highest end-user industry for the consumption
of polymer matrix composites due to constant increase in aerodynamic performance and
manufacturing light weight planes. Increasing use of polymer matrix composites in these
industries is mainly due to greater flexibility, high stiffness, which helps to reduce weight by
20 to 30 percent and increase range, payloads, and reduce fuel consumption. Owing to
these factors the polymer matrix composites market is expected to grow at a significant rate
during the forecast period (2018-2025).
