Global Advanced Space Composites Market

The several space programs and advancements in space research have been the primary focus of many developed and developing countries. The space activities provide the country with a broad scope of beneficial applications, including citizen development, mass communication, agriculture, economy, defense, scientific and medical research.

When the Apollo capsule was developed, the composites industry was still in its early stages, and the materials were not yet used widely in the space industry. The Apollo capsule used early composite technology in the form of an ablative heat shield made from Avcoat, an epoxy novolac resin with silica fibers in a fiberglass phenolic honeycomb matrix.

A fiberglass honeycomb was bonded to the primary structure, and the paste-like material was injected into each cell of Apollo’s primary structure individually. Since the development of Apollo, advanced composites have progressed and have played a significant role in space programs with use in launch vehicles, the space shuttle, satellites, space telescopes, and the International Space Station.

Global Advanced Space Composites Industry Overview

Advanced composites offer cost-effectiveness, high strength to weight ratio, multifunctionality, and various properties in terms of thermal insulation and ablation.High modulus carbon fiber reinforced laminates are one of the majorly used composites for many composite spacecraft applications.

In human crew capsules, composite panels are used to provide the thermal protection system (TPS) required for vehicle re-entry.The temperature capability and low thermal expansion offer additional benefits by reducing the amount of TPS material required, which reduces the weight of the vehicle.

Carbon fiber laminates are widely used on satellites and payload support structures.For instance, satellite bus structures are made using aluminum honeycomb sandwich panels with either carbon fiber or aluminum face sheets.

Also, high-modulus, high-thermal conductivity carbon fiber laminates with low moisture absorption resins, typically cyanate ester, are always used for manufacturing optical benches and other spacecraft structures, which must sustain dimensional stability for accuracy. These advanced composites help in maintaining extreme dimensional stability over extreme temperature when the spacecraft is in space. Apart from this, RF reflectors and solar array substrates also use high-modulus carbon fiber laminates in order to achieve stiffness and dimensional stability.

The global advanced space composites market was valued at $845.7 million in 2020 and is projected to reach $2,881.9 million by 2031 at a CAGR of 11.94%. The major driving factors for the huge revenues generated by the companies are the growing satellite launches and deep space activities, along with the rising usage of commercial off-the-shelf components.
