Reports - Composites Forecasts & Consulting
Market and Strategic Intelligence for the Advanced Composites Industry

CFC operates under the premise that everyone needs reliable data-based information as a foundation for good business decisions. For this reason, we invested our time and resources into the creation of an innovative range of market research products.  These reports leverage CFC’s founder’s nearly two decades of experience in the industry, as well as historical data spanning back more than four decades – to the early days of the CFRP industry. Each of these reports are based on a “ground-up”, application-by-application analysis of the market that provides a high level of confidence and accountability for the top-level trends and forecasted business activity over the 10-year forecasts.

Based on numerous requests from people and companies for this type of information, CFC is organizing its growing knowledge of the markets for advanced composites into a series of research reports to support a range of business planning and market awareness purposes. Often, when clients are seeking this type of information, there is an immediate and specific purpose. To this end, CFC has departed from the traditional written report format to leverage more multi-media intensive and flexible platforms to aid in quick assimilation of the data, repurpose useful charts, data, and illustrations, and provides 1-on-1 interaction with the report’s author. This personal service allows you the opportunity to ask questions and probe the content in ways that our competitors won’t.

2014-2023 Global Composites Aerostructures Market Outlook

1) 2014-2023 Global Composite Aerostructures Market Outlook

Over the past four decades the use of composite materials in the construction of modern aircraft has undergone a remarkable transformation. Initially, application of carbon fiber, glass fiber, aramid fibers, and other reinforced composites was confined to small fairings and non-critical flight structures on a limited number of programs. As the science of manufacturing composites has evolved, so has its use. Read more
