Aircraft AFP and ATL Composites Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Glass Fiber Composites, Carbon Fiber Composites, Aramid Fiber Composites), By Application (General Aviation, Helicopter, Military Aircraft, Others) And Regional Forecast 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104190 | Status : Ongoing



The AFP/ATL are automated fiber placement and automated tape layup. Both are the technologies that are used in aircraft components manufacturing. These technologies allow various companies to produce lightweight components with shorter processing time and high durability. Additionally, the AFP/ATL-based composite components do not easily get affected and damage, thereby aids aircraft manufacturers in reducing repair costs. These factors make AFP/ATL composites as an ideal choice over stamped parts and traditional hand-laid composite parts. The product finds its use in a wide range of aircraft applications such as general aviation, helicopter, and military aircraft.

The aircraft AFP and ATL composites market are growing at a rapid pace owing to rising demand in various aircraft applications.  The AFP and ATL composite offers several beneficial factors that include low production cost, lesser material waste, enhanced part quality, faster material deposition speed, and continuous transition in between manufacturing and design. These factors slowly replace manual handling of the composites and surge the demand for AFP and ATL in general aviation, helicopter, and military aircraft. Hence, rising aircrafts use will fuel the aircraft AFP and ATL composites market growth during the forecast timeline.

However, the availability of alternatives including automated dry material placement (ADMP) has restricted the adoption of the AFP and ATL in various aircraft applications. Hence, this is anticipated to hamper the market growth.  

Key Market Driver -

The rising demand for AFP and ATL Composites in the aircraft applications will fuel the market growth
