Cost of ceramic fibers significantly influence the value this product. The production capacity of alumina and silicon carbide are still small in the case of carbon matrix compounds, and the market is dominated by only a few major players in the North America and Europe, unlike carbon fibers whose mass production has brought down the prices positively. The manufacturing process for the product is energy intensive, which is expected to increase the raw material costs, hence raising the overall price of the product.
High product price acts as a restraint and bound their functions to niche application segments. A number of multinational brands are participating and investing in the emerging parts of the world to fulfill the growing need for these products from various applications.
GE Aviation, a large marine and jet engines manufacturing company, has invested for the development of these composites to produce aircraft engines. Profitable and efficient processes are expected to standardize the components for sequential production significantly. Also, leading companies in the industry is anticipated to emphasize on the cost efficient process for manufacturing matrix.
Silicon carbide matrix is a type of composite which has higher oxidation resistance than the traditional carbon matrix composite and has made them popular among the aerospace industry. SiC compounds are anticipated to capture a large share the global market with an estimated demand of 1020.1 kilotons as of 2015.
