  • There has been a constant struggle to optimize the operational cost of airlines, majority of the operational cost was accounted to fuel and to reduce the cost associated with fuel was of significant priority. This increased focus on reducing the weight, which is usually directly proportional to the fuel efficiency has paved the way to advanced composite aircraft which are 50% composite aircraft.  The defence market is at a higher maturity in terms of composite usage compared to Commercial Aviation market.
  • The environment driven initiatives which are intended to regulate the emissions from airlines are expected to be the major driver, it is expected that such initiatives will be implemented across the other region.
  • The program wise supplier mapping across the major commercial and defence programs are covered in Supplier Mapping Section of the report.
  • PEST analysis have also been covered as a part of the report, the major companies in the Aerospace & Defence Composite Market have been profiled and a detailed SWOT of each company has been covered as a part of the report.
