The global aerospace CMC industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2016 to 2021. The major growth drivers of this market are increasing penetration of CMC in the future generation aircraft and spacecraft and its superior thermo-mechanical properties. CMCs have been developed to achieve a damage tolerant quasi-ductile fracture behavior and to maintain all other advantages of monolithic ceramics at high temperatures; and offer better performance than traditional inorganic fiber-polymer composites.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of aerospace CMC industry, include application of CMC materials in heating areas, usage of CMCs in aerospace industry to reduce NOx and CO2 emission, and usage of CMC to reduce operating cost.
