Components are created for a single project. If you want to have the same set of components you would need to create this set of components in each project and then synchronize this set. You can write a program to synchronize components automatically. 

Or you could create a custom field of multi select type and use the field instead of the components field but you would lack such features like automatically assigned user based on components. You could also write a script for such functionality.
