Increasing need for Fuel Efficiency to Drive Aerospace Plastic Market Through 2030

Pressure from aviation authorities to curb carbon emissions from aircraft manufacturing has a positive impact on the demand for aerospace plastic. For instance, the Advisory Council of Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE) warrants a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions and 80% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions from original equipment manufacturers in the aviation industry. Advancements in material science furthers this adoption with superior product characteristics such as durability, weight to strength ratio, and electrical conductivity. On the back of such favorable trends, the global aerospace plastic market will grow 1.5X during the forecast period.

Proliferation of air travelling in developing countries such as India, and Indonesia propel the demand for expanding commercial aircraft fleets. This further increases the demand for aerospace plastic components used in manufacturing. Modern aircrafts rely on high-performance plastics to deliver fuel efficiency and enhanced safety & security. Adoption of advanced air traffic control systems, creates a growing need for high-speed data transmission which furthers the demand for satellite and construction & insulation applications of aerospace plastic. Introduction of in-flight entertainment also contributes to growth for the aerospace plastic market. As components, and cabin interior are made from aerospace plastic, manufacturers reap the benefits of product application versatility.

Aerostructures to Emerge as Lucrative Applications

Aerostructure applications of aerospace plastics in airframe components such as fuselage, wings, and flight control surfaces captures more than 44% share of the total market value. Ability of high-grade aerospace plastic to produce durable moulds is a prime factor driving growth in this segment. Low maintenance of aerospace plastics in high-tension environments will aid growth during the forecast period. Satellites application of aerospace plastic is a high-growth segment. Increasing drone surveillance, and air traffic routes is propelling the production of satellites.

Aerospace plastic increases satellite efficiency by reducing the weight and increasing insulation between data transmission components. Satellite applications of aerospace plastics will grow at an impressive 6.5% CAGR through 2030. However, the highest growth is expected from cabin interior applications of aerospace plastic. Airline companies are differentiating their products based on attractive cabin designs, and features such as in-flight entertainment. Since, aerospace plastic has established itself as a base material for producing components. The cabin interior application segment of aerospace plastic will grow the fastest with a robust 7% CAGR through 2030.

Commercial & Freight Aircrafts to Catalyze Market Growth

Increasing adoption of air transport to reduce the time-to-market of products and expand global footprint generates demand for freighter aircrafts. Uptake in domestic air travelling in developing countries such as India creates an increasing need for commercial aircrafts. Both these factors together poise commercial & freighter aircrafts as the largest end-use segment with a majority share of ~74% of total market revenue. Government investments in upgrading military aircraft fleets presents lucrative growth with 5.5% CAGR during the projection period. Advancements in military tech is driving the demand of aerospace plastics in manufacturing high-performance, lightweight components.

Europe to Witness Rampant Adoption of Aerospace Plastic

Europe has emerged as the most remunerative region for market players. This can be accredited to regular lobbying of aircraft production activities by ACARE. The European statutory body has mandated that manufacturers must prioritize reducing time-to-market, and reducing harmful emissions to avoid individual scrutiny. Europe accounts for over 36% share of the total market value. Prevalent aircraft manufacturing trends such as increasing fuel efficiency, enhanced consumer safety, and addition of attractive cabin designs collectively contribute to growth in this region. Since aerospace plastic has ubiquitous applications in aircraft manufacturing, the market in South Asia & Oceania will continue to grow at a strong 6.5% CAGR through 2030.

COVID-19 Impact on Aerospace plastic Market

The aviation industry is under tremendous stress due to Covid-19. To stop the spread of novel coronavirus, governments across the globe have suspended air travel. This means there is no revenue coming in, when coupled with high-operational costs that airline companies bear every day. The aviation industry has been disrupted by Covid-19. Another factor that strains aviation industry players is repatriation measures. In a bid to return stranded citizens, airline companies have been commissioned by their governments to accommodate stranded citizens. For instance, Norway is offering conditional state loan guarantees for its aviation industry. Italian airlines Alitalia has been nationalized to support repatriation efforts.

Maintenance and regular operations of airports is another aspect of aviation that faces adverse impact from COVID-19. The lack of revenue from duty-free, car parking, and concessions means airport authorities are running out of cash reserves. The United States recently passed a rescue bill to extend financial support to keep airports running. Major players have shifted all operations to freight roles. Commercial routes are being used to carry medical supplies, protective gear such as face masks, and pharmaceuticals. Most companies are at the end of their cash reserves, this seriously impacts recovery rate post COVID-19. The lack of operation capital will lead to ticket cancellations, which will further postpones additional plans to increase aircraft fleets. As the aerospace plastic market primarily generates revenues from original equipment manufacturing of aircrafts, the market will witness tough times during and immediately after Covid-19.
