Global Aerospace Plastics Market, By Polymer Type (Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Polyphenyl Sulfide (PPS), Polycarbonate (PC), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), Others), By Aircraft Type (Commercial , Military), By Application ( Cabin Interiors, Flight Deck & Cockpit and Structures), By Region, Competition, Forecast & Opportunities, 2025

The global aerospace plastics market stood at $ 12 billion in 2019 and is expected to witness sluggish growth during 2020 - 2025.The COVID-19 outbreak across the globe has had an adverse impact on aerospace plastics market, globally.

Due to this crisis, manufacturing industries stopped production as supply chain got disrupted, workforce dislocation and steep decline in the demand was observed, which has also made it challenging to predict the recovery trajectory in future.Aerospace industry no doubt can be considered as one of the most affected industries like hospitality as consumer demand has dropped significantly and led to a huge impact on aerospace plastics industry.

In addition, lack of standardization in manufacturing technologies and trained personnel is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market.

The market for aerospace plastics has been segmented into polymer type, aircraft type, application and region.Based on type of polymer type, the market is segmented into PEEK, PMMA, PC, PPS and ABS.

Among these polymer types, PEEK is dominating the market and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is an economical alternative to polycarbonate and is expected to register comparatively higher growth during forecast period.

In the aerospace industry, it is extensively used in manufacturing the canopies, windshields, etc., of the aircraft. Further, for the military aircraft, PMMA is used as a substitute for glass to manufacture airplane windows. Further, based on aircraft type, the market is bifurcated into commercial and military. Among these sub segments, commercial aircraft is expected to command majority market share between 2020 and 2025.
Based on region, the market is segmented into Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, North America and rest of the world.Among these regions, North America is the leading market for aerospace plastics, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Notably, the demand is higher in North America, as key aircraft manufacturers like Boeing and Bombardier are based in the region. Some of the leading companies operating in the Aerospace Plastics market are SABIC, Victrex plc, Drake Plastics Ltd, Solvay, BASF SE, Evonik Industries AG, Vantage Plane Plastics, Quadrant Engineering Plastics, among others.
