Aerospace Filter Market to Expand Twofold by 2030; Decline in Sales Due to Restrictions on Air Travel during COVID-19 Pandemic

by Team Fact.MR

The global aerospace filter market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6.6 Bn in 2020, and surpass US$ 13 Bn by the end of the forecast period (2020-2030). Presently, the spread of COVID-19 has affected the aviation industry, as suppliers in the market are seeing a steep fall in their profits with flights were grounded, resulting in declining sales of aerospace filters. Further, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimates that, the industry will require a cash infusion of nearly US$ 200 Bn to keep going. The capital-intensive nature of the industry has raised concerns about cash flow and liquidity, which, in turn, is hampering the growth of the aerospace filter market.

However, regulations associated with environment safety and emission standards imposed by regulatory bodies have become more severe. For example – both, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are formulating regulations with an aim to lower carbon emissions from commercial planes. This is expected to boost the demand of aerospace filters during the forecast period. Further, with geopolitical tensions escalating rapidly, demand for military aircraft is expected to ramp up. Thus, surge in demand from the U.S., India, and China for military aircraft is expected to create growth avenues for aerospace filter manufacturers during the forecast duration.
