Global Advanced Space Composites Market Research Report 2021 with Profiles of Leading Composite Companies, Satellite Companies & Launch Vehicle Companies

·5-min read

Dublin, Nov. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Advanced Space Composites Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Platform, Component, Material, Manufacturing Process, Services, and Country - Analysis and Forecast, 2021-2031" report has been added to's offering.

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.

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.
