Increasing Demand in the Aircraft and Aerospace Industry
The market is expected to be driven by the use of nanocomposites in aircraft manufacturing and construction. The advantage of nanocomposites is their nature as they combine both the optimization of existing materials and the creation of novel materials. The increasing air passenger traffic plays a significant role in the surging number of aircraft production worldwide. According to the World Bank, the number of air passenger traffic surged from 310 million in1970 to 4.3 billion in 2019. Worldwide. In East Asia and the Pacific, air passenger traffic was at 1.4 billion in 2019. In Europe and Central Asia, air passenger traffic was at 1.13 billion in 2019. Due to the rise in air passenger traffic, manufacturers and major players have increased the production of capacity of passenger aircraft and other types of aircraft worldwide. Boeing, one of the leading aircraft manufacturers, announced that it had delivered 380 aircraft in 2019. Meanwhile, Airbus announced that it had achieved its annual record by delivering over 863 jets in 2019.
There have been various developments in the nanocomposite market in recent years for its use in aircraft and aerospace applications. In January 2021, Alpine Advanced Materials announced that it had allowed Industrial Microbiological Services to add antimicrobial coatings to its HX5 lightweight aviation-grade thermoplastic nanocomposite material. When the company’s HX5 Composite material was coated with Signature Plating’s SignaShield Antimicrobial Clearcoat, the surface virtually eliminated all major and harmful microbes. Significant research and scientific institutions have been developing innovative and advanced nanocomposite materials for the market. In August 2020, Sheffield Hallam University, Composites Evolution, and AIM Altitude were backed by Innovative UK to develop nanocomposite materials for the market. The three of them have been working on designing and incorporating a nanocomposite material for an aeroplane and aircraft’s interior. The team had already developed a thermosetting resin system, which would use in the production of glass fibres using a hot-melting process. The team stated that the material exhibited excellent fire performance and exceptional mechanical properties. This successful conclusion of the project was a notable development for the future of the aircraft industry. In May 2020, a team of scientists at the International Advanced Research Center for Powder Metallurgy and new materials announced the development of size-selective deposition of nanocomposite coatings, which would be used in the reduction of friction of the dynamic systems in aircraft. The nanocomposite coatings could also tolerate corrosion better than any other wear-resistant coatings available on the market.
There has been a surge in the number of complaints regarding food quality standards in recent years. Consumers have become more aware of the standardization of different food products. With the rise in disposable income and urbanization worldwide, the demand for better food quality and packaging products has risen in recent years. Nanocomposites provide maintenance of food products. For Instance, in carbonated drinks, nanocomposites minimize the carbon dioxide by playing the role of a gas barrier. In 2018, Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, announced the development of a novel eco-friendly nanocomposite material, which helped combat antibiotic resistance more effectively. The novel compound had the potential to be used in food products as an emulsifying, thickening, and gelling agent. In September 2019, researchers at the Mohali-based Centre of Innovative and Applied Bioprocessing announced the development of nanocomposite, lignin-based, which would be used as an additive in packaging materials.
Asia Pacific Region is expected to have a considerable market share in the coming years, owing to the presence of a large manufacturing sector for food packaging, automotive, energy, and other applications. China is expected to have an extensive share in the market because of the large automotive industry and manufacturing sector. According to China’s government data, the country produced approx. 26 million motor vehicles in the year 2019. Out of that, 83% of China’s production was towards the manufacturing of passenger cars. According to the data given by SAIC Motor Corporation Limited, the company sold 6.2 million vehicles in 2019. India is also expected to have a major share in the market because of the large consumer electronics industry and the automotive sector. According to the Indian Government, consumer electronics and appliances are expected to be at USD 21.18 billion by 2025.
According to the Retailers Association of India, sales of consumer electronic products surged by 2% in September 2020 and rose to 8% in October 2020. The production of electronic hardware in the country rose from approx. USD 65.53 billion, in the financial year 2019, to approx. USD 73.78 billion in the financial year 2020. The national policy of the government of India targets the production of one billion mobile by the year 2025. The country is also a leading player in the automobile market, which is expected to drive the nanocomposite market growth in the coming years. The Ministry of Commerce data stated that Foreign Direct Investment in the country between 2000 and 2020 was around USD 24.53 billion.
