The New Report now available on ASDReports, Sheds Light on the Increased Demands in the Aviation Sector Propelling Growth Prospects in the Global Ceramic Matrix Composites Market
CMCs are manufactured by embedding ceramic matrices with refractory fibers. Ceramic matrices can be of various types including silicon carbide and alumina matrices. CMCs are used in a variety of industrial sectors including Mechanical and Chemical, Aerospace and Defense, and Energy and Environmental because of their superior material properties such as heat and wear resistance and high strength.
The Leap program initiated by GE Aviation, a subsidiary of GE, is the major trend being witnessed by the Global CMC market. GE's program is aimed at manufacturing and supplying CMC turbine-based Leap engines to major players in the Aviation industry.
''CMCs are preferred over metals and alloys for manufacturing high pressure turbines as CMCs can withstand higher temperatures and are also lighter in weight compared to metals and alloys,'' says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio.
