Aircraft Seals Market Outlook - 2027

Aircraft seals are used in various applications in aircraft such as exterior flaps cockpit and windshields. Also, seals are used to prevent fluid from passing a certain point and to keep air and dirt out of the system in which they are used. Therefore, aircraft seals are crucial for aircraft operation, if they fail, they can compromise the entire plane’s performance.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • The global market for aircraft seals is severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • The COVID-19 pandemic saw a decline in the economic growth in almost all the major countries, thus affecting consumer spending patterns. 
  • Owing to the lockdown implemented across various countries, national and international transport have been hampered, which has significantly impacted the supply chain of numerous industries across the globe, thereby increasing the supply–demand gap.
  • Thus, insufficiency in raw material supply is expected to hamper the production rate of aircraft seals, which negatively impact the aircraft seals market growth.
  • However, this situation is expected to improve as government has started relaxing norms around the world for resuming business activities.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

There is a growing number of aircraft being manufactured and procured both for military and civil purposes around the world. To make air travel both affordable and convenient, companies has put emphasis on requirements of rising middle class (e.g., no frills airlines). 

Moreover, military aircrafts are also being procured in a good number as they have strategic implication for national security. From attack helicopter to special operation aircrafts, armed forces around the world are equipping themselves with modern tools of warfare that assist armed forces to achieve success without risking human lives, unnecessarily. 

In addition, using emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things are increasingly being used by aircraft seals market players. This eventually increases cost reduction and increases efficiency of manufacturing and production processes. 

Furthermore, there is an increasing trend of using O-ring packing, which are used to prevent both internal and external leakage. This type of packing ring seals are effective in both directions and most commonly used. In installations subject to pressures above 1,500 psi, backup rings are used with O-rings to prevent extrusion. 

When an O-ring packing is subjected to pressure from both sides, as in actuating cylinders, two backup rings must be used (one on either side of the O-ring). When an O-ring is subject to pressure on only one side, a single backup ring is generally used. In this case, the backup ring is always placed on the side of the O-ring away from the pressure.

An O-ring designed specifically for use as a static (stationary) seal probably will not do the job when installed on a moving part, such as a hydraulic piston. Most O-rings are similar in appearance and texture, but their characteristics may differ widely. 

Aircraft seals market trends are as follows:

Recently, a compound was developed that offered improved low temperature performance without sacrificing high temperature performance, rendering the other series obsolete. This superior material was adopted in the MS28775 series. This series is now the standard for MIL-H-5606 systems in which the temperature may vary from −65 °F to +275 °F.
