The global aircraft AFP and ATL composites market size is estimated to grow substantially due to the chemical’s superior resistance and quick processing time. The chemical is extensively used in. the production of materials used for building aircraft due to its lower maintenance cost. Thus,the factor is expected to boost market growth. Fortune Business Insights™ mentions this information in its report titled “Aircraft AFP and ATL Composites Market, 2021-2028.

Aircraft automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape layup (ATL) composites are extremely useful for producing lightweight and durable components for aircraft. Aircraft AFP and ATL composites offer great resistance and durability when making aircraft parts and lessen the time consumed to produce high-quality metal parts for the aircraft industry. Furthermore, the chemical reduces the maintenance cost as the chemical is resistant to harsh environmental conditions. It is used for various applications such as helicopters, military aircraft, and general aviation. The components manufactured using this chemical are light in weight and of superior quality. Therefore, it is mostly preferred to offer conventional hand-laid and stamped components. Therefore, due to its benefits and its use in several applications, the market can grow in the foreseeable years.

Impact of COVID-19

Rising Demand for Raw Materials to Boost Market

The demand for aircraft AFP and ATL composites increases due to the lack of raw materials and components. Lockdown regulations have resulted in the lack of raw materials, thereby boosting demand for the chemical during the COVID-19 pandemic to produce high-quality aircraft parts and other components. Further, the use of aircraft to import and export vaccines and medical gear has fueled demand for the chemical. However, the future of this market is difficult to predict because of the emerging cases of COVID-19 infections.
