The aerospace & defense industry is one of the most strictly regulated industries in the world. The materials employed in the industry are also open to high regulatory and performance standard in order to meet the strict demands of the situations they are used in. A variety of materials such as composites, aluminum, steel, titanium, alloys, and many others are utilized in various structural and non-structural factor in this industry.

Composites have been used in the aerospace & defense industry since a very long time. Nevertheless, their usage in the industry was limited to only a few usages. Military aircraft were the first to use aerospace composites conspicuously in the structures to gain substantial weight reduction. Boeing first introduced its 787 Dreamliner model in 2011 (entered commercial service), which is stated to be made of 80% composites by volume.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The aerospace and defense sectors are adversely impacted by COVID-19. The aircraft manufacturing firms faced a downfall in orders as the travel bans are imposed in many nations therefore decreasing the growth of the market. Controlling the covid pandemic is crucial to reviving commercial aircraft demand. Most transport aircraft requirements are driven by air travel, and the commercial aerospace supply chain must zero in on survival until people feel comfortable traveling and governments allow it.
  • 2020 was a thoroughly tough year for the commercial aircraft industry, with the COVID-19 pandemic surge on travel and the global airline industry. Airlines are the backbone of the aviation market. When airlines succeed and grow, the rest of the commercial market prospers. Similarly, when airlines struggle, the entire market faces difficulties from aircraft OEMs and the global supply chain that assists them, to service, maintenance.

Top Impacting Factors

The swift enlargement of the middle-class added with rising disposable income has expedited the increase in aerospace activities in the developing nations of the world. As a result, there has been a rise in regional aircraft as well as the development of secondary airport substructure across the world. This has indeed given a rise to the demand for aircraft in developing nations, which is boosting the consumption of aerospace & defense materials. 

Fuel efficiency has always been the critical concern for any transportation industry environment, and it holds utmost importance in the aerospace & defense industry. The pursuit to cut down the cost of flying and grow operation profitability has led to the development of lightweight and high-performing materials that have assisted the aerospace & defense industry reach new heights. Lightweight and high toughness materials such as composites, aluminum, alloys, titanium, and others find a pivotal role in the main composition of the aircraft.  

One of the biggest obstructions to the development of the aerospace and defense materials market is the constantly changing preference for composite materials and complex responsibility due to less material options, whereas the less expenditure in defense sector in developed nations will hinder the growth of the market over the forecast time.

Market Trends

  • North America is one of the largest aerospace and defense materials market because of the high air travel frequency, cheap air travel rates, significant R&D investments and the strong presence of major aerospace ventures in this particular region. Europe is anticipated to spread out at a significant growth rate over the forecast period time. Airbus and Dassault Aviation are the two major aircraft firm situated in France which drives the market growth in this region. 
  • The composite materials segment has a hold of the aerospace & defense materials market in terms of value. It is also said to be fastest-growing segment in the market, both in terms of value and volume. However composites are finding an rising number of utilization in the aerospace & defense industry, they are responsible only for single-digit share in the market in terms of volume. Its counterpart, aluminum, is the most commonly used material in the industry because its high adoption in structural as well as interior parts. Titanium alloys are estimated to be the second most swiftly growing segment in the market. 
  • Asia-Pacific is estimated to observe a rapid growth over the forecast time, because od the exponential advancement in the regional aviation industry. Additionally, domestic mass production of China’s COMAC jet from 2021 is anticipated to boost the product demand over the coming years. China is estimated to be a rapid growing market, because of the developing economy, added with opportunities related to aircraft maintenance and service. Furthermore, government initiatives to escalate domestic manufacturing capacities and overall export to the U.S. are likely to propel the regional demand for aerospace & defense materials.
