Global Aerospace Plastics Market Size, Share, Trends & Forecast 2019-2025

Posted by nabeel on February 13th, 2021

The global aerospace plastics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 7% during the forecast period. In the aerospace industry, the innovation of new materials with less weight, improved performance and lower cost has significant importance. The rise in the demand for such characteristics is projected to flourish the growth of the global aerospace plastics industry. Aerospace plastics are those polymers that possess various advanced features such as high-temperature tolerance, high tensile strength, chemical properties, great transparency, hard surface, and many others. Some of the major plastic types that are preferred in the aerospace industry include polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Thermosetting Polyimide, Polyamide-imide (PAI), Polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE), and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
