TRENDS JULY 2018 22 CompositesWorld Stratview Research (Detroit, MI, US) and PR Newswire (New York, NY, US) announced in a May release a new market research report with the unusually lengthy title, "Aircraft Cabin Interior Composites Market by Aircraft Type (Narrow- Body Aircraft, Wide-Body Aircraft, Very Large Aircraft, Regional Aircraft, and General Aircraft), by Application Type (Floor Panels, Sidewall Panels, Ceiling Panels, Stowage Bins, Galleys, Lavatories, Seating, Ducts, and Others), by Composite Type (Glass Fiber Composites, Carbon Fiber Composites, and Others), by Process Type (Sandwich Construction, Compression Molding, and Others), by End-User Type (OE and Aftermarket), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World), Trend, Forecast, Competitive Analysis, and Growth Opportunity: 2018-2023." The report is a study of the use of composites in aircraft cabin interiors during the trend period of 2012- 2017, and a forecast based on that study for the 2018-2023 period. As its title suggests, this research report provides detailed insights on this market's dynamics, and is intended to enable informed business decision making and growth- strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market. Composite aircraft interiors market to exceed US$1.8 billion by 2023 According to Stratview Research, the aircraft cabin is one of the most discussed subjects in the airline indus- try today and should continue to be a hot topic because airlines' requirements for aesthetically pleasing, compact, and innovative cabin interiors show no sign of abatement. Low-cost carriers demand aircraft that have maximum space for seating to generate more revenue per journey, but premium airlines that target high-end customers would like to offer extraordinary passenger comfort to emphasize excellence in the customer experience. All major Tier 2 play- ers reportedly are working closely with aircraft OEMs to develop advanced lightweight interior systems. Composite materials are the perennial choice in fabricating structural parts because the materials not only offer lightweighting advantages and high strength-to-weight ratios but also deliver superior aesthetics. The report claims that the global aircraft cabin interior composites market is projected to grow over the next five years to an unprecedented US$1.891 billion. Organic growth of the aircraft industry is credited as the primary driver of the demand for composites in aircraft cabin interiors.
