The top three emerging trends driving the global aerospace nanotechnology market according to Technavio aerospace and defense research analysts are:
- Emergence of zero-fuel aircraft
- Nanotechnology in maritime warfare systems
- Advancements in stealth technology used in airborne platforms
Emergence of zero-fuel aircraft
“Zero-fuel aircraft use photovoltaic panels to utilize solar energy to provide necessary thrust to the engines. The Solar Impulse 2, a solar-powered prototype had nano carbon fiber reinforced structural components to reduce the overall weight of the body,” says Avimanyu Basu, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for aerospace research.
Currently, there is an increasing interest in the commercial and civil sectors for using zero-fuel aircraft in applications such as agriculture, aerial photography, 3D mapping, wildlife protection, and provision of internet access in remote places. The initiative is nurturing the global aerospace and defense industries to embrace a long-term development strategy of zero-fuel aircraft concept, thereby driving market growth.
Nanotechnology in maritime warfare systems
Many governments are emphasizing on employing nanotechnology to improve the capabilities of submerged and marine combat platforms. Nanotechnology provides freedom to the developers in terms of design and lets them produce micro-sensors that can be scattered on the ocean floor for detecting enemy submarines. Shortly, nanostructured materials will play a vital role in producing a new class of energetic materials and be a key enabler of most advancements that marine combat environment will experience in the coming two decades.
Advancements in stealth technology used in airborne platforms
“Stealth technology promotes the use of passive electronic countermeasures to make aircraft, submarines, ships, missiles, and satellites less visible or undetectable by detection platforms. Currently, the most popularly used radar-absorbent material is the iron ball paint containing nanoscopic spares,” says Avimanyu.
India is expected to enter into a co-development agreement with Russia to implement the design and development of fifth-generation stealth aircraft in the coming years. Similar R&D efforts towards the improvement of stealth platform during the forecast period will have a positive impact on the adoption rate of nanotechnology.
