Advanced Functional Materials Market

Advanced Functional Materials Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2022 - 2032

Market Insights on Advanced Functional Materials covering sales outlook, demand forecast and up-to-date key trends

Advanced Functional Materials Market Outlook

The advanced functional materials market is expected to record a CAGR of 7.6% through 2032, with a current value of US$ 107.16 Bn in 2022. The market is likely to reach a valuation of US$ 222.93 Bn by 2032.

A variety of industries demand advanced functional materials, including electrical and electronics, energy and power, automotive, aerospace, and healthcare and pharmaceuticals. In three ways, advanced functional materials reduce the carbon footprint of the component in which they are incorporated They use less energy during the manufacturing process; they have a lower carbon footprint when they are used and recycled.

Due to their exceptional properties, such as high corrosion resistance, melting resistance, bending resistance, and wear and tear resistance, advanced functional materials are becoming an alternative to plastics and metals in various industries. These advanced functional materials are more suitable for mass production.

Furthermore, nanomaterials dominate the AFMs market, as nanomedicine is rapidly taking advantage of nanomaterials in the healthcare industry. Treatment, diagnosis, drug delivery, tracking, and control of biological systems are all possible with nanomedicine.

Moreover, have high electrical properties, keep their physical properties, are chemically inert, and are more heat resistant than plastics and metals. These properties have enabled this material to be used in a wide range of industries, including electrical & electronics, automotive, healthcare, aerospace & defense, energy & power, and others.

Due to increasing investments and aircraft orders, the aerospace and defense industry is expected to grow significantly in the forecast period. In order to support fleet renewal and long-term passenger and air cargo demand growth, carriers will need more than 7,500 new wide-body airplanes by 2040, according to Boeing.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market for advanced functional materials. These materials are used in the automotive, aerospace, consumer durables, electronics, healthcare, and energy industries. According to estimates, China, India, Japan, and South Korea created the majority of the demand in the region.

China has contributed significantly to global air traffic growth over the past few years due to better air connectivity and higher spending power. As a result, the demand for the aircraft advanced functional materials (AFM) market is expected to increase during the forecast period.

Due to increased spending on aerospace and defense, North America is the second-largest market for advanced functional materials. In this region, the US spends more on defense than any other country.

In addition to start-ups, government initiatives, and the usage of advanced functional materials in various end-user industries, Europe is the third-largest market for advanced functional materials. Major revenue sources in the region include the UK, France, Germany, and Italy.
