The principal reason for doing this study is to present a current assessment of the CMC and CAMC industry from both a technological and market point of view and to outline future trends and key developments.

There is also a need to evaluate the current status and future trends of this market from a global standpoint.

As use of CMCs and CAMCs expands and new fields of application emerge, information on the suppliers and developers of these materials and their regional distribution becomes more valuable.

An equally important reason for undertaking this study is to provide technical insights into CMC and CAMC manufacturing by:- Providing a review of material types, their applications, and production methods.- Identifying current technological trends.- Providing an overview of the main global R&D activities related to CMC and CAMC technology, resulting in the issuance of patents.- Illustrating the latest technological developments.

- Identify important technology and industry trends within each market segment. REASONS FOR DOING THIS STUDY Ceramic and carbon matrix composites are materials containing a secondary phase (or filler) dispersed within a ceramic or carbon matrix that forms the primary phase.

- Supply an updated review of current industry players, including manufacturers of CMCs and CAMCS and their fabrication equipment, technology developers, and future market participants. Inmost formulations, the function of the secondary phase is to confer increased strength to the matrix; hence its alternative name, the reinforcing phase.

CMC and CAMC fabrication technologies have also continued to evolve.

In addition, several new applications have exited the development stage and entered commercialization, while others are being developed.Highlights - The global market for ceramic and carbon matrix composites will grow from by 2021 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4% for the period of 2016-2021.- The aerospace and defense sector is the largest segment of the ceramic and carbon matrix composites market and will grow from nearly by 2021, with a CAGR of 8.6%.Introduction & Scope INTRODUCTIONSTUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES BCC Research published its first report on ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) in 2010.Carbon matrix composites share production technologies and certain fields of application with CMCs, and sometimes they are included within the CMC classification.With this study, BCC Research continues its commitment to monitoring the CMC market and expanding its evaluation to cover CAMCs also.Universities and research facilities may also find this study to be a good source of technical information regarding CMC and CAMC technology, materials, equipment, and applications, which can be used as a baseline for new or expanded R&D activities.
