    Market Highlights

    High-performance industries like aerospace generate massive demand for an extravagant range of materials. Sheet is one of the many mill products used in the aerospace industry for a wide range of applications such as fuselage and pressure cabin skin. The key differences between sheet and plate lie in their thickness, rigidity, and strength. Plates are thicker, more rigid, and stronger as compared to sheets.

    In 2020, the grave impact of the pandemic was felt across the aerospace industry, and it trashed the market participants’ growth. The aerospace sheets market could not escape from the pandemic’s wrath and suffered a debilitating loss of over 35% in 2020. However, in 2022, the market rebounded strongly. The continual rise in aircraft deliveries is evident in the figures for the first nine months of 2023. During this period, Boeing delivered 371 aircraft, and Airbus delivered 488, as opposed to 328 and 435, respectively, in the same timeframe of 2022. Overall, the aerospace sheets market is estimated to promise a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period to reach US$ 2.4 Billion by 2028.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    • In May 2023, Arconic Corp., known for its portfolio encompassing the rolled products business, which manufactures aluminum coils, sheets, and plates through cold rolling and hot rolling processes, has 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.
    • In April 2020, Novelis Inc., a supplier of aluminum sheet and plate materials for fuselage and wing structure components, completed the acquisition of Aleris Corporation (a global supplier of rolled aluminum products).

    Based on the platform type, the aerospace sheets market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, military aircraft, helicopter, and spacecraft. Commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest and fastest-growing platform type in the market during the forecast period. Recovering production of aircraft, probable market entry of new aircraft, and an incessant requirement of mill products, are the key reasons behind the segment’s healthy growth in the long run.

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented into titanium & alloys, aluminum & alloys, steel & alloys, and others. others. Aluminum & Alloys captured the lion’s share in 2022, whereas titanium & alloys are expected to grow at the highest rate during 2023-2028. Titanium offers a remarkable weight advantage for aerospace structures as its density is 40% less than that of steel- or nickel-based alloys. The material brings a range of advantages to the table including tensile strength better than that of austenitic or ferritic stainless steels, extraordinary stiffness and toughness, and a high melting point.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to hold the major share in the aerospace sheets market 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 sheet suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be the 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 during the same period. The highest growth of the region 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 increasing procurement of military aircraft, owing to the rising defense budget and upcoming indigenous aircraft, C919. China, Japan, and India are likely to remain the major markets in the region.
