Market Definition

The Ceramic Matrix Composites Market size was valued at USD 7.92 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 22.31 billion by 2030 with a CAGR of 12.2% from 2022-2030.

Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are a sub group of ceramics and are obtained either by liquid or gas phase infiltration of carbon. CMCs consists of ceramic fibers embedded in a ceramic matrix and has better feasibility than alumina, silicon nitride, zirconia, and silicon carbide like substances. They have remarkable properties such as resistance to high temperatures, thermal shock, good creep resistance, enhanced toughness, as well as high electrical conductivity. Moreover, they are widely used in the aerospace industry for thermal protection, and in energy sector as heat exchangers.

Market Dynamics and Trends

The demand for ceramic matrix composites market is increasing due to the high adoption of CMC in the defense, aerospace, and energy power industries. In addition, factors such as rise in the demand of lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles in the automotive industry and increased adoption of CMCs by the governments of developing countries is further expected to propel the growth of the market.
