Global aerospace plastics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period. On account of increasing preference for plastics due to properties such as heat resistance, high performance, and light weight, there is growing demand for plastics as an alternative to metals which is propelling the growth of aerospace plastics market. Growth of global aerospace plastics market can be predominantly attributed to the progress in the commercial aircraft segment. However, lack of standardization in manufacturing technologies and trained personnel can act as a challenge for the growth of the market.

The market for aerospace plastics has been segmented into polymer type, aircraft type, application and region. On the basis of polymer type, the market is segmented into Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), Polycarbonate (PC), Polyphenyl Sulfide (PPS) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and others. Among these polymers, PMMA is expected to account for the largest market share during forecast period on account of growing utilization of PMMA as an alternative to airplane windows. Further, based on aircraft type, the market is bifurcated into commercial and military. Commercial aircraft is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period on account of expanding global economy and increasing air passenger traffic, thereby escalating the demand for commercial aircraft.

Based on region, global aerospace plastics market is segmented as Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa and South America. Among these regions, North America is the leading market for aerospace plastics, closely followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. This is due to the presence of leading aircraft manufacturers in the region and surging demand for lightweight aircraft.

Some of the leading companies operating in aerospace plastics market include SABIC, Victrex, Drake Plastics Ltd, Solvay, BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, Vantage Plane Plastics, Quadrant Engineering Plastics, among others. Various leading players have adopted the strategies of expansions, new product launches, and agreements, to meet the growing demand for aerospace plastics.
