Aerospace Materials Market 1
Aerospace Materials Market 1

The global Aerospace Materials market was stood around $34 billion in 2020 and is expected to demonstrate the growth of above 7% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The global market of aerospace materials is increasing on account of growing demand of aircraft in order to meet the growing airline travel. In developing countries like India, emergence of low-cost airlines increases the airline travels among middle-income population. This in turn, increases the low-cost aircraft demand, as a result, demand of aerospace materials like aluminum, steel, titanium, and composites among others is increasing. For instance, the production of crude steel rose to 1,878 million tons in 2020 from 1,435 million tons in 2010. In addition, production of primary aluminum stood at 65,325 thousand tons in 2020 compared to 42,353 thousand tons in 2010. Further, shifting aircraft manufacturer focus on reducing the aircraft weight without compromising on performance is increasing new materials demand like composites and super alloys. For instance, Aircrafts like Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 have been largely made of the material mix of carbon fibers and polymer resins.

COVID-19 affected the aerospace materials market negatively. Ban on traveling, resulting in the less demand of commercial and general aircraft, as a result production activity of new aircraft was halted. This in turn affected the whole ecosystem of aerospace industry including supplier and distributors of aerospace materials and manufacturer of aircraft components.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst material type, aluminum category held prominent share in the market in 2020.”

Based on material type, the market is categorized into aluminum, steel, titanium, super alloy, composite, and others. Among these, aluminum held the significant share in the aerospace material market in 2020. A large number of aircraft component such as fuselage and wings are manufacture using aluminum alloy. Further, increasing aluminum demand from large number of industries, increasing aerospace industry focus on recycle aluminum. In addition, shifting trend towards low-weight aircraft, is likely to increase aluminum alloys demand like aluminum-lithium, which can reduce the weight and improve aircraft performance.

“Amongst aircraft type, commercial aircraft dominated the market in 2020.”

Based on aircraft type, the market is categorized into commercial, military, business & general, helicopter, and others. Among these, commercial aircraft held the largest market share owing to high demand of aircraft and large number of materials consumptions during the manufacturing operations. Further, increasing penetration of airline travel in developing economies, increasing the commercial aircraft demand in order to meet the growing demand.

“Europe held the considerable market share owing to well-established aerospace industry in the region”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of Aerospace Material, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World.  Europe held the prominent share in the market in 2020 owing to large manufacturing of aircraft in the region.
