    Market Insights

    The global aircraft fairings market is expected to reach an estimated value of US$ 1,523.1 million in 2024. The factors catapulting the growth of aircraft fairings are listed below.

    • Expected rebound in production rates of the key commercial aircraft programs in medium to long run.
    • Introduction of variants of the best-selling aircraft programs
    • Market entry of players, increasing demand for lightweight fairings
    • Rising global aircraft fleet size

    There are many areas in an aircraft where fairings are used, such as wing-to-body fairing, flap track fairings, engine cowls, fillet fairing, vertical fin fairings, wheel well fairing, and strut-to-wing fairing. The primary function of an aircraft fairing is to reduce the form and interference drag and smoothen the aircraft surface.

    Segments' Analysis

    By Aircraft Type

    The global aircraft fairings market is segmented based on the aircraft type as narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, very-large aircraft, regional aircraft, and general aviation. Wide- and narrow-body aircraft are likely to remain the growth engines of the aircraft fairings market, propelled by increasing aircraft deliveries to support rising passenger and cargo traffic, upcoming variant of existing programs, and rising commercial aircraft fleet size. Boeing anticipated that approximately 42,730 commercial and regional aircraft will be delivered during 2018-2037 in which narrow- and wide-body aircraft would remain dominant during the period.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as the wing-to-body fairing, flap support fairings, engine cowls, vertical fin fairings, and others. Wing-to-body fairing dominates the market and is projected to remain dominant over the next five years. Wing-to-body fairing not only joints wings to the fuselage but also provides a housing for the landing gear, fuel, and various inlets and exhausts.

    The engine cowls segment is likely to witness the highest growth over the next five years, propelled by the development of high-thrust engines with a high focus on improving fuel efficiency. Engine cowls are one of the major components of the aircraft engine and nacelle system. They reduce parasitic drag by reducing the surface area and provide a smooth surface, thus, leading to laminar flow.

    By Material Type

    Based on the material type, the market is segmented as composites and metals. Composite is expected to remain the most dominant material type in the global aircraft fairings market during the forecast period. This material type is also projected to witness the higher growth during the forecast period, driven by advantages of high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue resistance, and lightweight.

    By Region

    Based on the regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for the aircraft fairings during the forecast period as the region is the manufacturing capital of the aerospace industry with the presence of several large- to small-sized OEMs, tier players, fairing and nacelle component manufacturers, distributors, and raw material suppliers. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate over the next five years, owing to upcoming commercial and regional aircraft and the world’s largest commercial aircraft fleet size.
