    Market Insights

     

    Floor panel varies depending on the type of aircraft and is a crucial factor in improving passenger safety and comfort. A honeycomb structure is made of a honeycomb-like core material layered between thin sheets. The aircraft floor panel should possess qualities including toughness, rigidity, and longevity. The market of the aircraft floor panel is presented with a wealth of opportunities with a healthy future growth rate. The key factors driving the market's expansion are the rising production rates of commercial and regional aircraft (B737 max, B787, A320neo, A350XWB, and A220); upcoming commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919, B777x, etc.); the demand for lightweight aircraft flooring; advancements in the flooring technologies; and an expanding aircraft fleet.

    The market for aircraft floor panels witnessed a severe decline of more than -30% in 2020, because of lockdown and supply chain disruption caused by the outbreak of COVID 19. The year 2021 was projected to be a promising year by some; however, airlines that had intended to replace their floor panels in 2021 were forced to delay or cancel plans due to the financial crisis. This, combined with a production issue in B787 found during shimming process, caused the market for aircraft floor panels to decline by more than -15% in 2021.

    An expected recovery in the aircraft demand to support recovering air passenger traffic, new upcoming aircraft programs, and growing aircraft fleet size collectively turn the headwinds into the tailwinds. Overall, the aircraft floor panel market is estimated to grow at an impressive CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 673 Million in 2027.

     

    Segments' Analysis

     

    Based on the aircraft type, the market is bifurcated into narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, regional aircraft, and business jets. Wide-body aircraft is anticipated to be the dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment of the aircraft floor panel market in the foreseen future. Wide-body aircraft witnessed an enormous decline amid the pandemic, greater than all other aircraft types. Furthermore, the grounding of B787 dented the recovery that was earlier expected from the market participants. However, the long-term business outlook still seems favorable to the market participants as both, Boeing and Airbus have announced to gradually ramp up their production rate of B787 and A350XWB, respectively, in the coming years. Concurrently, the introduction of fuel-efficient variants (B777x and A330neo) is likely to stir market growth in the years to come.

    Based on the core material type, the market is segmented as nomex honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb, and others. Nomex honeycomb material type is expected to be the dominant as well as fastest-growing core material type in the market during the forecast period. It is used extensively in all types of aircraft including narrow-body and wide-body ones. Nomex honeycomb has many benefits, including lightweight, outstanding rigidity, strength, resistance to corrosion, and fire. Also, it is thermally stable and has excellent dielectric characteristics.

    Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. Out of these, OE is expected to dominate the market for aircraft floor panels over the forecast period. The increasing production rate of existing aircraft programs to support the rebounding demand and new aircraft programs (COMAC C919, Boeing’s B777x, Airbus’s A321 XLR, and Irkut’s MC-21) are the main factors contributing to its supremacy. It is anticipated that both, OE and aftermarket, segments will experience significant growth rates in the coming years.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft floor panels over the forecast period. With numerous small- to large-sized OEMs in each aircraft type, this region has been a pioneer in the aerospace industry. The majority of the participants have production and assembly facilities in North America. Additionally, all of the major floor panel producers for the industry are present in the area to assist OEMs in the creation of advanced products that satisfy airline criteria.
