    Market Highlights

    Aerospace tubes are crucial components of the aircraft, they aid in fluid conveyance, fuel conveyance, bleed lines, cooling lines, etc. They are usually manufactured using metals & alloys such as titanium, steel, and nickel.  Distributors play a pivotal role in the extremely complex supply chain by establishing a broad geographical base on behalf of manufacturers. The intervention of distributors enables a smooth, hassle-free business environment for component manufacturers and OEMs. A distributor acts as an intermediate node between tube manufacturers (such as Ametek, Inc.) and tier players (such as hose and tube assembler, Parker Hannifin Corporation) or OEMs (such as Airbus or Boeing). The web of distributors is likely to stretch further in the years to come, with the growing need for intermediaries to reduce the direct pressure on tube manufacturers.

    Post recording a hefty decline in 2020 owing to the highly perturbed condition of the aerospace industry, the aerospace tube distribution market headed down the road of recovery, marking a healthy growth in 2021-2022, ultimately reaching a value of US$ 380 Million in 2022. The market is estimated to touch its pre-COVID levels by 2025, with a promising growth of >8.5% during 2023-2028.
