    Impact of COVID-19 on Aircraft Extruded Seals Market

    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.

    Market Highlights

    Seals are used in aircraft to prevent leakage of fluids, prevent air and dust to enter into aircraft’s structure, and provide protection against harsh environmental conditions. Seals are characterized by various functions including aerodynamics, fire resistance, conduction, insulation, and air and fluid handling. Extruded seals are made by the extrusion process which is used to make seals of fixed cross-sectional profile by forcing a material preferably elastomers through a die. This process is used to make complex cross-sections with smooth surface shining.

    Seals have traveled a remarkable journey in the aircraft industry over the eons concerning materials, designs, processes, certifications, and many other factors. Today, manufacturing seals of different types including extruded seals is a convoluted job which is a key factor limiting the number of companies active in the seals business for the aircraft industry.

    The aircraft industry had been blossoming at a healthy rate till 2018, marked a growth era of almost 16 years. The unprecedented grounding of the B737 Max program in 2019 after two deadly crashes within six months took down the nose of the rising aircraft industry. Moreover, the pandemic in 2020 hit the industry hard causing unimaginable disruption and losses for the stakeholders. The extruded seals market has recorded a huge decline of 28% in 2020.

    The lift of Boeing’s B737 Max in October 2020, gradual opening of travel restrictions, and an expected rebound in aircraft deliveries are among the key factors that are helping the industry stakeholder to rejuvenate the market demand. Furthermore, the market entries of new aircraft OEMs, especially COMAC and Irkut, in the commercial aerospace business coupled with the upcoming fuel-efficient variants of the existing aircraft programs are likely to accelerate the recovery process. Overall, the market for aircraft extruded seals is subjected to rebound at a propitious rate of 7.6% to reach US$ 0.11 Billion in 2026.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the aircraft type, the aircraft extruded seals market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, helicopter, military aircraft, and general aviation. Despite a huge decline in 2020, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the biggest demand generator for extruded seals in the aircraft industry in the foreseen future. The aircraft type is also likely to grow at an impressive rate in the post-pandemic market developments. Market entry of new players, such as COMAC and Irkut, rebounding aircraft deliveries, and ungrounding of B737Max are some of the key factors propelling the demand for extruded seals in commercial aircraft segment.

    IATA’s estimates on December 2019 (Pre-COVID 19) suggested a positive 4.1% growth in RPKs in 2020, whereas the latest estimates (December 2020) of the organization gauged the impact of the pandemic in the airline industry and revealed a mammoth decline of 66% in RPKs worth US$ 418 billion in 2020. Despite all breath-taking market conditions, the long-term outlook still seems positive with good opportunities lying in the industry once the headwinds of the pandemic turn into tailwinds. Huge order backlogs of Boeing and Airbus, asserting them to produce aircraft for more than seven years at the current production rate.

    Based on the application type, the aircraft extruded seals market is segmented as doors, windows, and others. The door is expected to remain the most dominant application type in the market over the next five years. Windows, another major application type, is likely to grow at the highest pace over the same period. Rigorous regular maintenance and replacement activities by airlines coupled with the emergence of new OEMs are the major reasons behind the healthy growth of the windows segment over the next five years.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft extruded seals during the forecast period. The presence of major aircraft OEMs, tier players, raw material suppliers, and part fabricators made the USA the leading region in the market. Most of the extruded seals suppliers have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be the partner for their upcoming aircraft programs or upcoming fuel-efficient variants of existing aircraft programs.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to soar at the fastest rate 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, increasing procurement of military aircraft, owing to the rising defense budget, and upcoming indigenous aircraft C919.
