North America accounts for a major share of the high-temperature composite materials market
North America accounts for the largest market of high-temperature composite materials, globally, due to the high demand from the aerospace & defense industry and regulatory norms requiring the use of eco-friendly materials. Along with the existing capacities, several high-temperature composite manufacturers, such as GE aviation (U.S.) and Boeing Research & Technology (U.S.), are expanding their production capacities for high-temperature oxide/oxide ceramic matrix composite materials. The demand for high-temperature composite materials in North America is projected to continuously increase in the near future because of significant performance, less pollution, and advent of new manufacturing techniques. This is further expected to increase the production volumes and decrease the cost of high-temperature composite materials.
Some of the key global players prevailing in the high-temperature composite material market are Kyocera Chemical Corporation (Japan), Royal Tencate N.V. (Netherlands), Renegade Materials Corporation (U.S.), Lonza Group (U.S.), and Ube Industries Ltd. (Japan) among others. These players have adopted various organic and inorganic developmental strategies during the forecast period. For instance, Royal Tencate N.V. and Performance Polymer Solutions (U.S.) entered into an agreement to develop and market high-temperature polymer prepreg materials for F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.
