    Market Insights

     

    Cabin interiors have been the most discussed topic in the aircraft industry in the last decade. Several advancements have been made by the industry stakeholders aiming to improve the overall passenger experience. Over the eons, composites have been gaining market traction and irrefutably became the most dominant material among all materials. Sandwich composites are predominantly used in cabin interiors with nomex honeycomb as the preferred core along with thermoset prepreg (typically phenolic or epoxy) being the perennial choice for skin materials. Apart from composite sandwich panels, injection-molded, extruded, and compression-molded components are other key composite forms in interiors.

    The aircraft industry has already been in distress in 2019 in the wake of several factors including but limited to the B737 Max grounding, PW1100G engine series failure, and revised production rates of key aircraft programs (A350XWB and B787) due to cancellation of orders. Furthermore, the sudden outbreak of pandemic increased the industry challenges, resulting in a sharp plunge by -39.9% in the aircraft interior sandwich panel market in 2020.

    Despite the short-term demand fiasco, the long-term growth prospects for aircraft interior sandwich panels still seem favorable. Hence, the market is anticipated to rebound from 2021 onwards, experience a promising CAGR of 9.4% over the next five years to reach US$ 1.5 billion in 2027.

    Segments' Analysis

     

    Based on the aircraft type, the aircraft interior sandwich panel market is segmented as narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, regional aircraft, and general aviation. Narrow-body aircraft is estimated to maintain its unassailable lead in the market in the foreseeable future. The aircraft body type is likely to make the fastest comeback with the resumption of domestic air travel in various parts of the world. The market entry of COMAC C919 and Irkut MC-21 is likely to further substantiate the demand in the years to come.

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as floor panel, sidewall panel, ceiling panel, stowage bin panel, galley panel, lavatory panel, and others. Floor panel is estimated to maintain its lead in the market over the next five years. They are more prone to impact and load, leading to the demand for high-performance materials, such as carbon epoxy prepreg with nomex honeycomb core. 

    Based on the core material type, the market is segmented as nomex honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb, and others. Nomex honeycomb addresses most of the prerequisites of the aircraft interior applications, such as high mechanical property and high FST performance. Excellent strength-to-weight ratio; excellent corrosion resistance against water, oil, and fuel; high-temperature capabilities; easy formability; and good dielectric properties are other advantages.

    Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. The OE segment holds a larger share of the market in 2021. Commercial aircraft (narrow-body, and wide-body aircraft) account for most of the OE as well as aftermarket demand for sandwich panels. Aftermarket also occupies a healthy chunk of the market. 800+ airlines are active worldwide, generating a strong replacement demand for sandwich panels.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft interior sandwich panels during the forecast period. The region is holding the largest fleet of regional aircraft and general aviation, ensuring strong retrofit demand. Resumption of production of B737 Max at a low rate with gradual plans to ramp up production further contributes to the demand for sandwich panels in the region. Asia-Pacific to be the fastest-growing market in the post-pandemic scenario, driven by China, Japan, and India.

    Key Players

    The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, Prepreggers, core material suppliers, sandwich panel manufacturers, tier players, aircraft OEMs, airlines, aircraft leasing companies, and MRO companies.

     

    Interiors remain a hot topic in the aircraft industry. The industry noticed a large number of M&A activities in the interiors-related business in the past 10 years.
