Key Market Trends

The Commercial Segment is Expected to Dominate the Market, in the Years to Come

The market is expected to be dominated by the commercial segment, whose revenue forms a major part of the total revenues of the industry. Currently, narrow-body aircraft are witnessing high demand, driven by increasing passenger traffic, mainly in the developing countries. With the increasing demand, the production rates of commercial aircraft have increased over the years, which has put pressure on the players in the supply chain, to increase their production capacities as well. The manufacture of Airbus A320 and Boeing B737, two of the largest selling commercial aircraft in history, has seen a steady growth over the years. Airbus is increasing the production of the A320 family of aircraft to 60 units per month. Hence, companies like FACC AG, Patria Aerostructures, Teledyne CML Composites, Ducommun Aerostructures, Avcorp Industries Inc., and CTRM are involved in the supply chain of fairings for these models, who will also be pressurized to ramp up their production levels. Thus, the market is expected to be higher in the commercial aircraft segment, in the years to come.

Asia-Pacific to be the Fastest-growing Market for Aircraft Fairings, during the Forecast Period

In terms of geography, the aircraft fairings market is experiencing a high growth rate in the Asia-Pacific region. Growth in the deliveries of commercial aircraft and the increasing procurement of military aircraft by various countries in the region are the reasons behind the growth of the market. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to achieve a high growth rate in the aviation market, in the near future. According to IATA, air travel in Asia will be greater than the next two biggest markets, North America and Europe, combined, by 2030. With such a high rate of growth in terms of passenger traffic, the airlines in the region need to procure new aircraft to cater to the increasing demand. Even for military activities, the countries in the Asia-Pacific region are procuring aircraft on a large scale. For instance, India is procuring a total of 62 Airbus Defence and Space C295 medium-transport aircraft (MTA) for the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Indian Coast Guard (ICG), which are expected to be delivered over the next few years. Likewise, Japan is also planning to buy as many as 105 F-35 stealth warplanes from the United States. All these factors are expected to make the region the fastest-growing market for aircraft parts, like fairings.

Competitive Landscape

Saab AB, Avcorp Industries Inc., Strata Manufacturing, FACC AG, and CTRM Sdn Bhd (Composites Technology Research Malaysia) are some of the prominent players in the market. In the fairings market, the material suppliers and other tier-2 suppliers in the value chain are collaborating with the aircraft OEMs, like The Boeing Company and Airbus SE, to jointly develop light-weight fairing structures. For instance, in 2016, Solvay and Boeing announced the extension of their contract till 2020, for the supply of high-performance structural composites and adhesive materials. These materials will be used by Boeing in various primary and secondary structural applications, such as flaps, doors, fairings, and ailerons for legacy and future programs, such as the 737, 737MAX, 747, 777, 777X, and 787. Moreover, with the aircraft OEMs manufacturing some of their own fairing components, the competition in the market has increased. Hence, the tier-1 suppliers have to innovate in terms of materials and structures, to be able to gain contracts for upcoming aircraft models, for staying active in the competitive market.
