Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.
Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.
Machining is an engineering process that is used to obtain the desired shape of the part by various machining processes such as milling, turning, and drilling. The process can also be described as a variety of material removal processes 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. Milling and turning are the two major machining operations through which aerospace structural parts are shaped. In the milling process, the cutting tool moves around the workpiece, whereas, in the turning process, the workpiece moves against the cutting tool to obtain the shape.
The COVID-19 has devastated the entire supply chain of the airline business with the massive drop in air travel, not only reducing the airlines’ revenue but also enduring an additional cost of maintaining their grounded aircraft fleets. The demand for machined components in the industry more or less acted similarly, witnessed a massive decline of -30.4% in 2020, pushing the market below the 2015-market level.
However, recent industry announcements coupled with the study of recovery trajectories of the previous downturns suggest that the machined components market is expected to commence recovery from 2021, followed by sequential growth in the years to come, ultimately helping the industry stakeholders to cross their pre-pandemic levels by 2024. Overall, the market is set to grow at a lucrative CAGR of 7.8% over the next five years to reach US$ 6.4 Billion in 2026.
Based on the process type, the aircraft machined components market is segmented as milled parts, turned parts, and others. Milled parts are expected to remain the largest segment over the next five years; whereas turned parts to experience the highest growth during the same period. Advancements in the milling processes to offer excellent benefits, such as finishing accuracy, increasing uniformity in design, lead time reduction, and ease in manufacturing complex parts, help the process to better position themselves in the market.
Based on the aircraft type, the aircraft machined components market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft, and general aviation. Despite taking a nosedive in 2020, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. Returning in service of B737Max, entry of new programs (C919, B777x, and MC-21), and expected recovery in the production rates of A320 and B737 programs is likely to fuel the segment’s growth.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented as metal airframe, engine, interiors, and others. Airframe is expected to remain the most dominant application segment of the market during the forecast period. Airframe is the largest section of an aircraft, comprising fuselage and wings. Key applications of airframe machined components are fuselage frames, fuselage covers, wing ribs, spars, and engine pylon fittings.
Based on the material type, the market is segmented as aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, and other metals & alloys. Aluminum is expected to remain the most dominant material type in the market during the forecast period, whereas titanium is likely to experience the fastest growth during the same period. Key factors for aluminum’s dominance are its excellent track record of over eight decades, lower density, anti-corrosive property, high malleability and ductility, and economical than that of competitive materials, such as titanium. Titanium is gaining preference in the market owing to its various benefits, such as high strength-to-weight ratio, high corrosion and heat resistance, and higher compatibility with composite materials.
Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. OE is expected to remain the most dominant segment of the market during the forecast period, whereas aftermarket is likely to be the faster-growing end-user type during the same period. Commercial aircraft (which includes narrow-body and wide-body aircraft), account for the majority of the OE sales for aircraft machined components.
In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft machined components during the forecast period, driven by the presence of a large number of aircraft OEMs, tier players, machined component manufacturers, and raw material suppliers The USA is likely to remain the leading market, both in, North America and globally till 2026.
Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-recovering region during 2021-2026. China is gaining significant share and accounts for more than two-fifths of the Asia-Pacific market in 2020. India is likely to be the new growth engine of the region’s market in the coming five years.
