Key Market Trends

OEM End-user Industry to dominate the market

  • Epoxy resin is the most used adhesive in the aerospace industry.
  • Epoxy resin in aerospace adhesives have good strength, do not produce volatiles during curing, and have low shrinkage. However, they can have low peel strength and flexibility and are brittle.
  • Aerospace adhesives are used in variety of places such as lights, displays, AC, seats, fasteners, cockpit doors, and electronics among others.
  • These are used in bonding aircraft structures and airframe structures, such as structural components in the fuselage, control surfaces in wing flaps and tips, empennage components, composite fairings, cargo liners, landing gear doors, and floors.
  • Growing aerospace industry globally is expected to increase the applications of aerospace adhesive in OEM end-user industry.
