Metal Matrix Composites Market

Metal Matrix Composites Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2017-2027

Market Insights on Metal Matrix Composites covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Metal Matrix Composites Market Overview

Metal matrix composites (MMC) are composite materials consisting of a metal and a secondary ingredient which may be a different metal or non-metallic material such as ceramic or organic compound. The global metal matrix composites market growth is closely correlated with the performance of its end-use industry, and more specifically global automotive market.

The key characteristics associated with metal matrix composites is provision of superior mechanical and physical properties such as tensile strength, resistance to fire and moisture and can be used over a wide temperature range. Metal matrix composites also offer the possibility to tailor these properties to meet specific requirements, which makes this material type unique in comparison with its counterparts.

Apart from automotive industry,metal-matrix composites are either in use or prototyping for the durable and lightweight parts in a variety of end use sectors such as electronics/ thermal management, aerospace, defense and marine.  The rising demand from these sectors is expected to sustain the demand of metal matrix composites in forthcoming years during the forecast period.
