Aircraft potted-in inserts are lightweight, corrosion-free, low cost and high strength composite thermoplastic used to fasten honeycomb sandwich structures. Rise in demand for technological advancement of systems and products throughout the global aircraft manufacturing industry. Aircraft OEMs have increased adoption of lightweight products to cope up with the increase in demand for high fuel-efficiency which acts as a factor for the growth of the market. Several other product manufacturers associated with the honeycomb structures have also observed business growth led by the growth of honeycomb structures market. Moreover, shift of focus toward durable products offers opportunities for lucrative growth in the aircraft potted-in inserts market.
COVID-19 scenario analysis:
Aviation industry observed a loss in revenue owing to the travel bans, lockdowns and flight cancellations implemented by the governments across the world to counter the outbreak of COVID-19.
Massive spread of COVID-19 virus has negatively impacted the global supply chains, competition and market dynamics which further degrades the ease of doing business.
Shortage of labor and scarcity in availability of raw materials and manufacturing unit have led to delayed deliveries of aircrafts due to the regulations and restrictions imposed by several countries.
Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) activities associated with aircrafts have been terminated which reduced the demand for aircraft potted-in inserts market.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis
Increase in regional and commercial deliveries of aircrafts, increase in demand for lightweight and durable sandwich panels, and rise in adoption of growth development programs for aircrafts are the factors that drive the aircraft potted-in inserts market. Weak core material and high fabrication costs impose limits on the market growth of aircraft potted-in inserts. Contrarily, exceptional mechanical properties and superior corrosion resistance of aircraft potted-in inserts materials present new growth opportunities for the aircraft potted-in inserts industry.
The aircraft potted-in inserts market trends are as follows:
Increase in regional and commercial deliveries of aircrafts
Aviation industry has observed exponential soar in air travel that brings various new opportunities for the airlines and aircraft manufacturers. The growth in air travel will generate requirement of thousands of new fuel efficient aircrafts with lower emissions. For instance, in 2018, Stanley Engineered Fastening launched Spiralock Key insert, which can be used in radar communications and instrumentation panels, avionics and aircraft engines. Spiralock Key insert combines with self-locking threads and provides a creative solution for the aircrafts. Hence, continuous increase in demand for lightweight and advanced aircraft deliveries to enhance the fuel-efficiency of aircrafts is expected to drive the demand for the aircraft potted-in inserts market.
Increase in demand for lightweight and durable sandwich panels
Components in an aircraft must be lightweight and capable of withstanding very high loads in normal operations. Honeycomb sandwich components are the constituents for almost all of the cabin module inside an aircraft and are manufactured by honeycomb potting which involve placement of inserts into prepared holes in the honeycomb structure. For instance, in May 2019, ViscoTec provided a solution for honeycomb potting, which did not require human intervention and used variable flow rates to fill honeycomb voids. ViscoTec lowered material wastage and throughput times during honeycomb potting. Innovations and technological developments for increasing the durability and reduction in weight of sandwich panels promotes the growth of the aircraft potted-in inserts market.
