    Market Highlights

    Materials in the aerospace industry are used in various milled forms, such as sheet, plate, bar, and strip, for a wide range of applications. Bars are majorly used in applications such as engines, fasteners, exhaust ducts (for helicopters), and landing gear. They come in various shapes, sizes, and diameters, best fitting the application at hand. The selection of material is dependent on several parameters, including temperature resistance, lightweight, durability, strength, etc. Titanium & alloys, aluminum & alloys, and steel & alloys are the three major materials used by bar manufacturers.

    Till 2019, the aerospace industry thrived with relentless demand and soaring orders. However, the pandemic in 2020 dealt a severe blow, leading to unprecedented losses. The pandemic’s sharp, unsought strike brought havoc and dismay to markets across the industry. The bars market in the aerospace industry was no different, it suffered a massive blow in 2020, recording a grave decline of 36.1% YoY which when juxtaposed with our pre-COVID estimates, is an outright contrast.

    Following a difficult 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the market recovered in 2022. The commercial aircraft manufacturing sector foresees good growth in 2023. Notably, in September 2023, Boeing delivered 27 commercial jets and Airbus delivered 55, compared to 51 and 53 deliveries, respectively, in the same month the previous year. Looking ahead, the aerospace bars market is expected to exhibit a promising CAGR of 5%, reaching a projected value of US$ 2.2 billion by 2028.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    • In May 2023, Arconic Corp. (which is a manufacturer of bars, profiles, and tubes for aerospace, automotive, and industrial product applications from high-strength aluminum and aluminum-lithium alloys) agreed to be acquired by Apollo Global Management Inc. (APO.N.) in a take-private deal valued at about US$ 5.2 billion.
    • In November 2020, Kaiser Aluminum Corp. took steps to enter the North American aluminum packaging industry by acquiring the rolling mill business in Indiana from Alcoa Corp. subsidiary Alcoa Warrick LLC for US$ 670 million.

    Based on the platform type, the aerospace bars market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, military aircraft, helicopters, and spacecraft. Commercial aircraft are expected to remain the largest and the fastest-growing platform type in the market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for lightweight yet durable parts; market entry of new players, such as COMAC and Irkut; and rebounding aircraft deliveries are some of the key factors propelling the demand for bars in the commercial aircraft segment.

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented into titanium & alloys, aluminum & alloys, steel & alloys, and others. Titanium & Alloys are expected to remain the most dominant material type in the market during the forecast period. The density of titanium is 40% less than that of steel- or nickel-based alloys, yielding a remarkable weight advantage for aerospace structures. It is a desirable material for high-performance metal bars owing to its tensile strength (better than that of austenitic or ferritic stainless steels), stiffness, and toughness along with their high melting point. Owing to their massive array of advantages, titanium and nickel are gaining traction in the aerospace industry.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aerospace bars during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market with the presence of major aircraft OEMs, tier players, raw material suppliers, and part fabricators. Most of the bar suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be partners for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to recoup at the fastest rate, witnessing the highest growth during the same period. The highest growth of Asia-Pacific is mainly attributable to the increasing aircraft fleet to support rising passenger traffic; the opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus for multiple aircraft programs; and the increasing procurement of military aircraft, owing to the rising defense budget.

    Key Players

    The market for aerospace bars is gradually consolidating as the major companies are performing mergers & acquisitions to quickly gain the leading position and to tap the growing opportunities in this briskly expanding market.
