Aircraft tube and duct assemblies market Outlook 2030 –

Aircraft tube and duct assemblies are essential portions of the aircraft fluid lines. Aircraft tube and duct assemblies are used for fluid passage solutions for systems in the aircraft. Tube and ducts are made from a variety of materials, including copper, aluminum alloy, steel, titanium, and other metals. Aluminum alloy, nickel alloy, corrosion resistant steel, or titanium tubes have replaced copper tubing in modern aircrafts, and they are now widely used in aviation fluid applications. The process of designing and assembling aircraft tube and duct so that they can withstand high water and air pressure, dangerous hot and cold temperatures, and corrosive chemicals. Aircraft manufacturers are concentrating their efforts on incorporating light-weight ducts and tubes into planes and helicopters in order to lower the overall weight of these equipment. Aluminum alloys are employed in lower temperature systems.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

The COVID-19 health crisis pandemic continues to impact various industries across the world. While, a few industries have recorded a massive decline in demand ratio, and numerous others have continued to remain unscathed and also represent some promising growth opportunities. The pandemic also has affect the global aircraft tube and duct assemblies market. However, due to COVID-19, airspace restrictions have increased, aircraft have been grounded, and manufacturing activities have come to a halt. The pandemic has negatively impacted the global market. As the airspace is closed and air travel activities are prohibited, many aircraft are grounded. Most airline companies are expected to face heavy losses. Due to the pandemic, the supply chain has also been impacted the aircraft tube and duct assembly systems manufacturing facilities are closed.

Top impacting factor

  • Development of lightweight materials for production in aircraft, the increasing aircraft sales will drive revenue, and reduced costs of air travel are the major factors drives the growth of the aircraft tube and duct assemblies market.
  • Government laws & regulations, and rising use of lightweight materials in components in terms of clamping processes which make assemblies complex are the restraints that hindered the growth of the aircraft tube and duct assemblies market.
  • Adoption of light weight aircraft, and the implementation of advanced, combat, and stealth-based aircraft procurement programs in defense industry are the major factors offering an opportunity for the growth of aircraft tube and duct assemblies market.

Development of lightweight materials for aircraft

The selection of aerospace materials is crucial in aerospace component and system design cycles. It affects many aspects of aircraft performance from the design phase to disposal, including structural efficiency, flight performance, payload, energy consumption, safety and reliability, lifecycle cost, recyclability and disposability. Aerospace structural material critical requirements include mechanical, physical and chemical properties, such as high strength, stiffness, fatigue durability, damage tolerance; low density, high thermal stability; high corrosion and oxidation resistance, as well as commercial criteria such as cost, servicing and manufacturability. Aside from satisfying basic service requirements, improving structural efficiency in aerospace structural design is becoming increasingly important since the use of lightweight structures improves aircraft performance. For instance, in aircraft tube and ductile market, the use of carbon fiber can reduce an airliner’s weight by 20%. The Airbus A350 XWB’s sweeping wingtips, which are made of carbon fiber, deliver roughly 5% in fuel savings. 50% of the airframe of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, is made of carbon fiber.

Adoption of lightweight aircraft

The principle of lightweight design is to use less material or materials with lower density but ensure the same or enhanced technical performance. A typical approach to achieve lightweight design for aerospace components and systems is to apply advanced lightweight materials on numerically optimized structures, which can be fabricated with appropriate manufacturing methods. As such, the application of advanced lightweight materials can effectively achieve both weight reduction and performance improvement. Although metal materials especially aluminum alloys are still the dominant materials in aerospace application, composite materials have received increasing interest and compete with aluminum alloys in many new aircraft applications. Structural optimization is another effective way to achieve light-weighting, by distributing materials to reduce materials use, and enhance the structural performance such as higher strength and stiffness, and better vibration performance. For instance, the Boeing 787 implements carbon fiber for achieving a 20% weight saving in aircraft which results in 10%–12% fuel efficiency improvement. Design optimization of a solar powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an application of using both clean energy and lightweight structures to achieve green aviation operation.
