    Aerospace machined components are manufactured using several machining processes. Machining can also be described as a material removal process, where the cutting tool takes out the undesired metal from the workpiece to build the desired shape of the part. There are two basic types of cutting tools: a single-point tool for turning and boring, and a multi-point tool for milling and drilling. It involves the use of various machining processes (such as milling, turning, etc.) to shape, cut, and form metallic materials into desired shapes and sizes. Among all the machining processes, milling and turning are the two major types used to craft aerospace components.

    Recent Developments: There have been several contracts, plant setups, and company restructurings performed over the past few years. Some of the major ones have been mentioned below:

    • In July 2022, Airbus announced the launch of its new subsidiary, Airbus Aerostructures, which was established by merging the activities of the parent company’s four production sites in Germany with the former Premium AEROTEC plants in the country.
    • In January 2022, Airbus Atlantic, the wholly owned Airbus subsidiary, was established by merging the parent company’s activities at the Saint-Nazaire and Nantes sites in France with those of STELIA Aerospace global sites. As a result, the company has become a key player in the global aerostructures market.
    • In October 2020, Airbus commissioned JUARISTI to manufacture two palletized milling and boring centers to modernize its machine resources at its St-Eloi plant in Toulouse.
    • In February 2019, Magellan Aerospace Corporation opened a 100,000-square-foot manufacturing and assembly facility in India. The new machining and assembly plant will specialize in high-speed milling and turning of aerostructure and aero-engine components produced from both aluminum and hard metal materials.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: Over the past few years, there have been a fair number of strategic alliances, including M&As, JVs, etc. performed across the globe. Some of them have been mentioned below:

    • In February 2023, Prince Industries, a USA-based, globally integrated contract manufacturer of precision machined and fabricated parts, acquired Precision Shapes (PSI), a USA-based provider of complex material and tight tolerance precision machining services, including continuous long-length milling, to companies operating in the aerospace & defense industry.
    • In July 2022, Germany-based Pennar GmbH agreed with France-based Cadnum SARL, an engineering & precision machining company, to acquire 100% of its equity. The acquisition will help Pennar enter the aerospace OEM supply.
    • In November 2021, Global Precision Products, LLC, a US-based company, acquired Will-Mor Manufacturing, LLC, a provider of mission-critical engine components for both commercial and military aerospace applications through milling and turning processes, as well as ordnance equipment for the defense industry.

    COVID-19 Impact

    The emergence of the COVID pandemic in 2020 left the aerospace industry in shambles, devastating the entire supply chain of the airline business with a massive drop in air travel and reducing the airlines’ revenue. The demand for machined components in the industry more or less acted similarly, witnessing a massive decline of -41.9% in 2020.

    Post-pandemic, primarily driven by growing air travel demands and expanding airline fleets, the industry’s recovery is anticipated in the upcoming years. It is also estimated that the market will follow a sequential growth pattern in the years to come, ultimately helping the industry stakeholders to cross their pre-pandemic levels by 2025.

    By Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, the market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft, and general aviation. Despite taking a nosedive in 2020, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Returning in service of the B737Max, the entry of new programs (C919, B777x, and MC-21), and the expected recovery in the production rates of the A320 and B737 programs are likely to fuel the segment’s growth.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented into metal airframes, engines, landing gear, and others. Among these application types, the engine is expected to remain the most dominant segment of the market, during the forecast period. Some of the major machined engine components are compressor shafts, impellers, turbine blisks, turbine blades, thrust fittings, fan casings, combustion casings, fuel nozzles, turbine diffusers, and pylon brackets. As these engine components are of paramount importance in an aircraft, it is also expected that the segment will witness the fastest growth in the years to come.
